Current role

* 15 years as freelancer delivering exam training of all Accounting/ Financial Reporting papers, delivered face-to-face in a classroom, web-based and as private tuition

* Provision of IFRS and UK GAAP technical updates to corporates at conferences and seminars

* I have also marked the professional exams for the ACA (FR) and ACCA (P2/ SBR).

* These years of experience ensure I have an in-depth technical knowledge, and a solid understanding of what it takes to pass these exams.


* 20+ years of professional exam training at Kaplan - first as a full-time employee and then as a freelancer.

* My time is split equally between classroom based teaching, live web-based delivery and one-to-one sessions.

* Specialist in the Accounting and Financial reporting papers at all levels. Have coached 1000s of students successfully through their exams, some earning prizes in their papers, others just delighted to achieve a pass in these challenging exams.

* Papers taught:

ICAEW (Accounting, FAR, CR)


CIMA (BA3, F2)

* Marked the professional exams for the ACA (FR) and ACCA (P2/ SBR) which offered significant insight into the all-important exam technique, and this in turn has shaped my teaching.

* Extensive experience of ACCA training to students where English is not the student's first language and I understand the additional challenges this brings.

Along side exam training I deliver technical updates in IFRS and UK GAAP for BPP, CIMA, ACCA, ICAEW and a number of other training organisers, so you can be assured of the depth and breadth of my knowledge, no matter what level of exam you are sitting. In recent years I have delivered guest slots in Financial Accounting and Reporting at CASS Business school on various Undergraduate programmes.
