About Me

I was born in a town called Skipton, North Yorkshire. So naturally I've a Northern UK accent. But having taught some twenty years, I typically speak slowly and enunciate clearly.

I very much believe in keeping things as simple as possible, so as to aid practical application. Too much detail early on can overwhelm, and damage confidence. Once a skill has been practised a while, more detail can be added in.

In my personal life, I no live in Larne, Northern Ireland - having moved to Ireland with my wife in 2009. My hobbies include gardening and reading.

Experience / Qualifications

Having passed my Hnd in Software Engineering in 2001, I started teaching vocational IT in colleges. Qualifications like GNVQ and AVCE in subjects like Computer Hardware, Networking, Database Design & Programming. I also worked for Edexcel as an assessor.
Several years later I then passed my TEFL qualifications.
Since then I've taught English as a Foreign language, Hnd level IT and Maths, and basic IT/Microsoft suite skills both online and face-to-face.
Many topics in the school curriculum have seen huge changes in recent years, none more so than Maths. Maths has seen new topics, and teaching methods. Also while the traditional Maths topics were taught in isolation, modern methods interconnects the topics to solve practical, real-life, problems. On the course we will discuss topics like: Numeral Systems (binary, decimal), Algebra, Geometry, Probability, Set Theory and Statistics.
A good grasp of Maths and IT Fundamentals has become essential in many walks of life, both professional and personal. In this very specific foundational course, designed to help those interested in a career in the IT Software field, we will learn about mathematical concepts like: Set theory, Numeral Systems (binary, decimal), and Algebra (including Boolean). These lie at the very foundation of Computer Science. Then go on to see how they are applied in Database Design and Programming concepts.
English is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world with approximately 1.5 billion speakers. It is the mother tongue of more than 350 million people, and the most widely used language in big business and IT. Improve your ability to comprehend, and communicate, in this increasingly used language. Both written, and oral, English is covered by a UK native with over twenty years teaching experience.
