Patient and dedicated Astronomy Tutor, Beginner to GCSE!

Hi, my name is Paul. My aim is make learning Astronomy fun and rewarding. It's also about getting you out there and to get started doing some real, practical Astronomy as quickly as possible!
I have been teaching Astronomy (both introductory and intermediate) since 1999 with the last four years also teaching GCSE. I teach both privately and for Birmingham Adult Education Services as well as giving one-off talks to various societies and groups.
I have been passionately interested in the subject since I was 8 years old and I am currently working towards a degree in Astronomy and Astrophysics.
I hold a Certificate in Astronomy and Planetary Science from the Open University and a Certificate of Professional Development in Teaching Astronomy from John Moores University Liverpool.

Re: Astronomy Tutoring

Mr. Paul Shephard taught a course I enrolled in two years ago. I was a complete novice to the subject, indeed I went along initially to support shy friend! However I found the course fascinating, due in no small part to Mr. Shephards' engaging and measured teaching skills. It is obvious that he has real passion for his subject, and the class found this infectious. I would highly recommend him as a tutor. I am a nurse tutor myself, and have experience in teaching.
An introductory knowledge base, which I thoroughly enjoyed and which looks very good on my CV.
