I have been teaching New Testament Greek since I was nineteen, to a range of people from children to clergy to doctoral students to the elderly. This began after my first year of university, teaching a group of homeschool kids and their parents. Since then I have taught Greek at Mattersey Hall Bible College (at the time accredited by the University of Wales), Oasis College Waterloo (accredited by Staffordshire University), and taught individuals and larger classes privately in various settings. I also taught a semester of Greek in a high school in Canada, on a voluntary basis.
I hold a first class BA (Hons.) in Biblical Studies and Theology from the University of Wales, an MA in Biblical Studies from Durham University, and a PhD in Philosophy from Staffordshire University, with a thesis blending Biblical Studies, Psychoanalysis and Philosophy. I live in London, England – though, thanks to the internet, this does not reduce my ability to take on students overseas!
As of June 2021 I am looking to make teaching my primary income, in order to spend time working towards ordination with the Metropolitan Community Church, of which I have been an active member since 2011. This is with the ambition of becoming an end of life chaplain for LGBTQ+ people, in addition to my lecturing and research. I am also a confirmed member of the Church of England, and was raised Pentecostal in a half-Mennonite home, though my views on God and theology have changed a bit since I was child.
