For the last 14 years I have had a strong desire to help others with their learning. I started coaching gymnastics after moving to my current club in Plymouth when I was about 13. In 2003 I gained my first coaching qualification shortly followed by a judging one.
Fast forward a few years and I got my first experience of working in a school setting. This was challenging. I was still working on my communication, behaviour management and organisational skills and quickly found that coaching is different to teaching.
Forwards again for a few more years and I find myself applying for a BSc (Hons) Strength and Conditioning degree. In short the best 3 years of education I have ever received. I came out with a 1st (after quite poor GCSE results, and mediocre College results). Following this I wanted to get further experience of working in schools so I took a couple of years to gain more experience.
This is where the new chapter of my life begins.
