Assuming you can all read, you will know my names Simon!
I use the latest teaching methods which are fully interactive, utilising iPads, smartphones and even dash cam replays on the iPad!
How did you come about training to be a driving instructor?
After several years of jumping between jobs and getting bored, I decided to amalgamate my love for teaching with my love for driving (and singing fantastically...) to work in one of the best industries. I completed my training with Jane Clarke, a former examiner who now works as an experienced independent instructor trainer.
What are your teaching methods like?
I'm very laid back and patient but will get you to work for your own success. We will have a laugh when one of us has cocked up (remember, the instructor is never wrong) and I will always adapt to your training needs.
What's your favourite chocolate?
Ooo, I do like Lindt chocolate but you canít beat a good bar of Cadburyís Wholenut...other chocolate bars are available.
What are your hobbies?
Iíve been in the Sea Cadets 17 years. Starting as a Junior Cadet all the way to becoming staff when I was 18 and baby faced. I am specialised as a Drill Instructor, that means I get to shout at people, which comes in handy as a stress reliever!
I love all types of music...literally all, from The Cheeky Girls (ish) to Fall Out Boy and everything in between.
Iím also a Wedding Photographer which is pretty cool as you get a lot of cake...
ONE BIG RULE...you're not allowed to say sorry! Mistakes are common, you're learning!
So thatís me! I hope that we get to work together and I look forward to teaching you very soon!
