Catchment Area

I cover the following areas: Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge, Southborough, Pembury, Groombridge, Matfield, Paddock Wood and anywhere within about fifteen minutes drive of Tunbridge Wells.

After over 20 years teaching in Tunbridge Wells I'm taking a well earned break!


It's not forever though, I'm coming back and teaching again from July 2018.

In the meantime I shall be travelling with my wife down through the America's on our trusty motorbike.

See you next year!!!!!
