David Cooper


I am a qualified secondary teacher of Computer Science, Business Studies and Economics, with around 20 years of teaching experience. Prior to teaching, in 1998, I graduated from Oxford Brookes University and then worked in the IT industry in London for five years, initially for a fine art auction house and later in the IT European Projects team at a recruitment company.

In 2003 I progressed to teacher training and moved from London to Exeter. I graduated with a PGCE as a specialist ICT teacher and embarked on my teaching career at a comprehensive school on the South Coast of England in Dorset. More recently, I received a Secondary computer science teaching certification from the British Computing society. I taught ICT and Business studies and gained Qualified Teacher Status(QTS) in 2004. Since then, my family and I have lived in the UK, USA, Ascension Island, Sweden and Romania. I have experience of working in many school settings both in the UK and abroad; these include a high-performance comprehensive, an independent boarding school, and various international schools.

I have experience teaching Computer science from primary school to upper secondary, Economics and Business Studies in various school settings, and have promoted creative enterprise in schools through various initiatives. Along with diverse teaching and tutoring experience, I am also an assessment specialist with Cambridge international examinations.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing and listening to classical and contemporary music, reading and studying, rowing and boats.

My diverse experience has helped me to become a versatile educator, aiming to bring out the best in my students. I strive to approach tutoring with patience and kindness and firmly believe in the opportunities Wolsey Hall blended learning and home-schooling offers students worldwide. Children from various backgrounds and situations can receive a high-quality education here, and I look forward to helping Wolsey Hall students to fulfil their potential.
