My original education in New Zealand was in Education and Theology . I later specialised at Masters level in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) at the University of Ulster in Northern Ireland.
For 12 years I worked in New Zealand as a pastor, followed by 5 years in Northern Ireland as a church worker. After completing my MA studies in 1990, I joined a research group in the university working on the development of children's language in the classroom using computers. Later I became a lecturer in Religious Education in the university's teacher training department.
Since coming to Norway in 1995, I have taught English at all levels of education in the Norwegian education system. I have also had experience in translating and/or teaching for several large companies in Norway:

NTE large local electricity company DataPowerLearning on-line training provider NorskeSkog large paper-manufacturing company Høgskolen i Nord-Trøndelag university college Skyggsjå A/S environmental protection company SpareBank 1 bank
This has provided a wide range of experience in different professional areas.
I seek to offer a service of
professional excellence

"Things isn't as they used to was before they is as they am now, was they?"

A bit of grammatical nonsense heard from my mother-in-law!
