Graeme graduated from the University of Manchester in 2010 with a bachelor's degree in Business Studies and started his teaching career in 2012, initially teaching English as a foreign language for a year in Thailand. This experience ignited his passion for teaching and upon returning to the UK in 2013, Graeme studied for a Postgraduate Certificate of Education at the University of Cumbria. After completing his PGCE, Graeme taught Key Stage Two classes in primary schools in the UK for a year. Graeme has spent the last two years teaching at Gulf English School, a British overseas primary school in Kuwait. Graeme has lots of experience teaching children who speak English as an additional language and it delights him to see children flourishing in two (and sometime more) languages. Graeme has always loved learning new skills and strives to impart knowledge to children in fun and engaging ways, both within and outside of the classroom environment.
Outside of school, Graeme's interests involve a love of sports and travelling. He is a keen football and badminton player, playing both to a good standard and has represented his county at badminton. Graeme enjoys exploring new destinations and cultures and has travelled around much of Europe, South East Asia, the Middle East and Australasia. Graeme is very excited at the prospect of exploring China and immersing myself into Chinese culture and is delighted to be at Dulwich College Suzhou.
