I'm a teacher with over 25 years of experience in various aspects of education after my undergraduate and postgraduate studies at Bristol University.
Living and working in seven cities, four countries and two continents before returning to Richmond-upon-Thames with my wife Fernanda and daughter Anna Giulia has shaped my approach to education.
My two decades abroad and fluency in other languages enable me to offer unique insights into my three educational passions: English, Geography and Economics.
An experienced and enthusiastic trilingual teacher and teacher manager with international experience in Brazil, Spain and Portugal.
I have been actively involved in the development and international expansion of a multimedia English teaching approach in a multinational company, the creation and expansion of a personalised English teaching service in São Paulo and the successful application of online IT to maximise students' progress.
In secondary education I have been head of department and teacher of Geography and Economics at KS3, KS4 and IB as well as an examination moderator and private tutor.
