BIOGRAPHY & INTERESTS

The first part of my youth was spent in Hong Kong and Singapore, eventually moving to Jersey where my family have settled. As well as mentoring with Oppidan, I have been working as a freelance photographer and filmmaker and have also set up a clothing company. Away from work, I am an avid sports fan, regularly playing cricket and anything that involves a racket. I also enjoy the theatre and watch more films than I care to admit.

EXPERIENCE & APPROACH

I have worked with a number of GCSE and A-Level students, predominantly within modern languages. I am firmly of the school of thought that mentoring ought to differ from traditional classroom teaching, and so my approach is more dynamic and bespoke to the individual, tailored to their needs and interests. I try to make lessons as fun as possible without compromising academic value.
