I have been a lecturer in Further and Higher Education in the UK since 2009. I have taught a wide variety of topics, though I specialise in creative style topics such as Web Development, eCommerce and Graphic Design. Other subjects I have taught include Information Systems, Game Development, Databases and Human Computer Interface(HCI). I have always enjoyed teaching and watching students develop their skills always brings a great deal of satisfaction to me. I hope my videos are of benefit to you and you enjoy using them as much as I enjoy making them!!
