I worked as a plumber for 6 years, then changed career in 2007 and have been teaching at Modern English ever since, teaching adult and business courses. I have two children Thomas and Emily. In my free time I enjoy cooking, wine tasting, real ales, TV and cinema, music and diving. I am also an avid armchair sports fan.

Living in Bologna since 2006 and teaching at  Modern English since 2007. Most of the last ten years spent in Italy, teaching English, studying Linguistics and getting to know the best of Italian culture. Biggest passion is music, anything that grabs my attention, from Turkish psychedelia to vintage Italian soundtracks. Also enjoy travelling, watching films and slowly working my way around Bologna's many eateries.

Joined Modern English in 2014, having previously taught English in both Bologna and my home town of Macclesfield.

I have ten years teaching experience, in all areas and at all levels of EFL from Young Learners to Adult business classes.

Film subtitles and novels count among the many translations I have done. When I get a spare moment I enjoy listening to music and playing the guitar, and spending time with my family.

I have been teaching EFL in Ireland and Italy since 2012 .
I moved to Bologna in 2014.
I believe that language teaching is comprised of more than just grammar and lexis and also encompasses the study of different cultures and perspectives.

I have varied interests ranging from sociology to linguistics, engineering to cooking and anything/everything in between!
