Yes, issued June 2014.
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I am a member of the Institute of Physics and the Institute for Learning.
Do you have a personal message for students?
The GCSE Science curriculum is packed and very often there can be insufficient lesson time available in school for students to fully understand and get to grips with the concepts of Science. I can explain these concepts in a variety of ways to match how my students learn best to make sure my students grasp the fundamental ideas. Examiners are keen on the How Science Works questions, which test understanding of the methods of Science, and they're the ones students often get wrong.

To do well at GCSE Maths requires practising lots of questions, once you have understood the maths process you need to solve the particular type of question. For those doing A-level Maths, yes, it really is that much harder than GCSE. It requires a step-up in level, but also in persistence.
