Academic Tutor

I began my teaching career in the Department of Theology of Durham University teaching undergraduate Hebrew. From there, I moved on to teach Religious Studies for over 30 years in an independent school. During that time, I was also a team inspector in the independent sector. For my last three years I also served as the school's chaplain.

During my teaching career, I was responsible for teacher training, and worked closely with the universities of Sunderland and Durham.

Teaching and supervision

I am an Academic Tutor in the School of Education, working with international PGCE students as well as with UK PGCE and undergraduate students on teaching practice.
I enjoy classical music, and I have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. I enjoy reading, mainly historical novels and biographies. 

Having retired from full-time teaching I now work (part-time) with students training to be teachers both in the UK and abroad. I also steward and guide tours in Durham Cathedral.
