My background was teaching English as a Foreign Language, and I spent a year in Spain doing this before returning home and under taking a post-graduate qualification in History at the Nottingham Trent University. At Trent I had the opportunity to teach undergraduate students, and really enjoyed this. I studied for a teaching qualification (PGCE), before starting at Boston College part time teaching English to international learners.
I have now been at Boston College for ten years, and have taught a variety of courses from English as a Foreign Language to Study Skills and History.
I currently teach History on the Access to H.E. course, and started teaching it on the Pre-Access course. In addition I teach AS/A2 History.
My job also involves being a Tutor to a number of different groups, and helping organise social activities.
