I am a University Teacher and Programme Director for the Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education at The University of Sheffield.
I have recently co-authored a new book on personal tutoring and coaching for the HE sector entitled ‘Effective Personal Tutoring in Higher Education’ (Oct. 2018). It is the first UK monograph on the topic in twelve years, promoting a more evidence-based approach to practice and situating advising and tutoring within the wider, international literature on student retention and success.

My first well-received book entitled ‘Becoming an Outstanding Personal Tutor: Supporting Learners through Personal Tutoring and Coaching’ was published in October 2015.
I have been Programme Director and module lead across a range of postgraduate education provision and held the role of cross-institutional quality lead for personal tutoring and student experience, as well as a range of curriculum leadership, quality and teaching and learning enhancement roles. I’m a keen writer, researcher and blogger within teacher education, personal tutoring and academic advising and student experience development and, as such, I’d welcome making connections about writing, research, speaking and professional development.
