I am a teaching pro with 20 years experience. I give both individual and group lessons to all standards.
The sessions are tailored to the needs of the individual or groups, being informal and friendly for social players and more intense for competitive players
I have been working in a variety of positions for over 20 years. This has had me operating as an independent coach delivering to all levels. I have worked in the education sector delivering in schools during curriculum time and after school clubs. I have worked in private clubs as an assistant pro and for local authority sites.

My most recent role working as a coach developer for a Sports Governing Body, required me to have a constant drive and ability to reach management targets linked to company objectives (financial and participation) as well as customer service skills (member satisfaction). This also takes into account National Governing Body strategic plans and Government strategies. Within this role I am constantly eager to develop and make improvements. I have played a leading role in developing and improving the coaching pathway, enhancing the quality of both formal and informal qualifications, each with their own requirements and opportunities. I have been responsible in particular for the development of the UKCC qualification content to meet the modern demands of the game, resulting in a coaching programme which has matured each year to provide expansion and progression for both players and coaches. I have also been instrumental in the design and delivery of a schools resource which we now use to deliver in both primary and secondary sectors. It has been through collaborative working with teachers and other educational specialists that we have managed to align the resource to the Curriculum for Excellence.
