Born in a town of the Lake District in Northern England, Rob developed a passion for sports and teaching.
This passion grew into a life ambition when he left university with a degree in sports coaching and physical education.
Following this, he taught at schools as a physical education teacher and outside school as a football and badminton coach. Rob is trained and has experience in teaching students with physical and cognitive disabilities.
He worked for 3 years as a health trainer and coordinator with disabled students aged from 12 and above. Rob has been teaching and coaching in some form since 2011. After many years of working in this field he could not ignore his desire to experience life in another country. He arrived in Rome in March 2019 and soon found the opportunity to put his teaching skills to great use as a primary school English teacher.
Robert has been teaching at St Philip School since 2020.
