I am passionate about teaching young and old to think critically and engage with government critically. I have a Doctorate from Oxford covering social studies and social philosophy, over 20 years of teaching experience, and also numerous years of participating in national and international governments - through campaigns of multiple sorts. I am honoured by the opportunity to share a thinking space with young learners. My aim is to help this learners sharpen their analytical and communication skills so they can come to their own views on issues that have no easy answers.

50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
