I have been teaching French and German for ten years and have been learning languages for most of my life. I fell in love with French pretty much instantly, thanks to some inspiring (and crazy!) teachers during my own time at school.
I joined Aldridge School, a successful and popular comprehensive school in the West Midlands, in 2003 and I am still there. For the last few years I have been responsible for Modern Languages at the school; this has given me an even deeper insight into language learning. I have recently started working part-time at the school in order to spend more time with my family and to start my own business.
Outside of school I am a bit of a nerd, with hobbies ranging from computer programming to playing the ukulele, and plenty in between. I am also a fan of real ale, along with anything else that is bad for me. I have a fantastic and long-suffering wife, Naomi, and a beautiful daughter, Evie.
