Who I am and what I do

I'm an experienced Science/Physics teacher, based in the Midlands. Since September 2014 I've been working as a teaching and learning coach with the Stimulating Physics Network, part of the Institute of Physics. I'm a Chartered Science Teacher, accredited by the ASE, and a Chartered Physicist via the IOP.

I have an independent blog and am active on Twitter, but the best way to contact me is usually by email.

Over the last few years I've been doing an increasing amount of freelance work. I've built on my classroom and coaching experience to produce teaching resources and deliver external science education courses. 

Get in touch if you'd like me to work with you or write for you.


I've reviewed books and written on teaching topics for the GuardianCERP and the Royal Society of Chemistry.

I've produced resources for the Wellcome Trust's I'm A Scientist, Get Me Out of Here and contributed to projects for the DfE, AQA, EdComs, and the STEM Learning eLibrary. I've written for Physics Review (articles for A-level Physics students) and the British Educational Research Association blog. I'm a co-author on a KS3 science textbook, due out January 2018.

I've delivered CPD to colleagues in school and for external courses run by the DYHNE Science Learning Centre and Hodder Education. I've run workshops at the ASE Annual Conference and ResearchEd Maths and Science.
