Jack's CV

After 35 years of Teaching to Higher and Advanced Higher level, I retired having achieved Chartered Teacher status. I recently returned to tutoring mainly for enjoyment and intellectual stimulation. I currently work for Cambridge University as an examiner for English language. My students come mostly from the Kirkintilloch and Lenzie areas.
