I am Director and founder of My Online Schooling, one of the world’s leading providers of live British education online. We have pupils in over 40 countries around the world who access our live, interactive lessons which run almost 24 hours a day. I am responsible for overseeing the running of the school as well as its growth and development. The most rewarding part of my job is seeing the wonderful progress made by the young people at MOS during their time with us. I am grateful to work with so many wonderful teaching and management staff members both in the UK and at our Asia Pacific School in Australia.
My own journey within education started when I graduated from the University of Glasgow and later, the University of Edinburgh, where I received a distinction in P.G.D.E Primary. I have more than ten years of experience in the education profession, including the Special Educational Needs sector, management and private and state teaching in the UK, New Zealand as well as Uganda where I helped support a primary school through fundraising and regular visits. Throughout this experience, I began to recognise a need for an alternative to traditional schooling. I decided to fulfil this ambition by establishing My Online Schooling, with one simple aim: to improve the educational possibilities for young people.
Outside of my career I love to travel and explore new places. I’ve been fortunate enough to have visited a fair few countries worldwide, but I have many more to tick off my bucket list! One of the highlights of my adventures was a gruelling 10-day trek to Mount Everest Base Camp. Aside from travelling, I enjoy keeping fit and have a keen interest in rugby, football, hill walking and skiing.
