I try to make my classes as engaging as possible using various media. I'm a great believer in hands-on astronomy so my lessons include many demos and post-lesson activities so that the student can put what they learn into practice. I also advocate that the students can email me anytime when they have a question so that they don't feel that they are restricted to just the session time.
Hi, my name is Paul. My aim is to make learning Astronomy fun and rewarding. It's also about getting you out there and to get started doing some real, practical Astronomy as quickly as possible and/or helping you through the GCSE if you are going down that route.
I have been teaching Astronomy (both introductory and intermediate) since 1999 with the last 10 years also teaching GCSE. I teach both privately and for Adult Education Services as well as giving one-off talks to various societies and groups.
I have been passionately interested in the subject since I was 8 years old and I am currently working towards a degree in Astronomy and Astrophysics.
I hold a Certificate in Astronomy and Planetary Science from the Open University and a Certificate of Professional Development in Teaching Astronomy from John Moores University Liverpool and of course, many years of practical experience and subject knowledge!
My day job is in I.T as a Business Intelligence Developer and SQL Database Administrator.
