Meet the team
Reed Business School would like to introduce the tutoring and learning coach teams below. All tutors are subject specialists and both tutors and coaches have vast experience and expertise. Find out a bit more about the people who will be teaching you and providing support to you on an individual basis through your Skills and Behaviours project (applicable to apprentices). The majority have been working with the Business School for many years.
I teach audit and financial reporting papers, this includes for ICAEW Assurance, Audit & Assurance, Financial Reporting and Corporate Reporting and for ACCA Audit & Assurance and Financial Reporting. I have been teaching at Reed for over 21 years. I love teaching because I like helping students to pass their exams and achieve their potential which I find rewarding.
Bsc FCA DipIFR
I teach the tax papers for the ICAEW and ACCA exams– ICAEW PTX, TC and BPT and ACCA TX and ATX. I have been teaching at Reed Business School for over 20 years and love teaching here because of the wonderful students. As many of the students are residential they get to know each other well and this creates a great, friendly atmosphere in class.
I deliver training for professional accountancy exams and CPD. I am a director with accountancy firm Pincott Lee advising a wide range of businesses. My experience includes financial training for numerous large and small companies, all the Big 4 accountancy firms, the University of Reading and overseas in a number of European countries.
I’ve been involved with the delivery of professional accountancy studies since 2000 and freelancing for Reed since 2017. I teach across ICAEW, ACCA and CIMA and specialise in all of the financial accounting, reporting, corporate reporting and audit subjects.
I teach financial management and strategy related papers. I have been lucky enough to teach at the Business School for well over a decade. You have to go a very long way to find a training organisation that cares more for its students. The ambience and culture of the Business School are simply superb.
FCA, BA(Hons), BFP
Rob combines lecturing at Reed with a portfolio of private owner -managed business clients. Students at the business school are frequently good fun, and its nice to get to know them better over a battered haddock and peas!
I have been teaching at Reed since 2017, and teaching accountancy since the turn of the century. I teach 'everything but tax' but in my old age have specialised in Financial Management and Case Study-style papers. I love working at Reed because of the sense of community.
FCA, MSc, BA(Hons), BFP
I am an experienced management consultant and freelance lecturer, based in rural Northumberland. I have been teaching at Reed Business School for over a decade and specialise in CIMA Case Studies and E3/P3. I occasionally also teach ICAEW and ACCA business management and strategy papers.
I teach CIMA BA4, ACCA Business Law and ICAW Business Law. I have been teaching at Reed Business School for 22 years. Law is a very practical subject as much of the information can be used in everyday life. Reed Business School is in glorious grounds and the staff are all very helpful and particularly the food is excellent!

BSc Hons Maths, PGCE Secondary Maths, CIMA
I have been teaching at Reed for twenty years now, across the ICAEW, CIMA and ACCA qualifications, concentrating on the audit and accounting papers. The students are keen, the location is amazing but, best of all, the staff are the most amazing people. Everyone is so willing to help each other out and everything is done with a smile.
I have been teaching at Reed for 3 years - focused on anything to do with business strategy, which completes the consultancy work that I continue to do. Why Reed? I find the students are engaged, motivated and more interesting than I have found in other organisations.
CIMA, PRINCE2, PGCHE
It is not only the beautiful manor building, grounds and other facilities at Reed that make it a pleasant place to work. It is the kind, helpful and generous staff from the night porter to admin staff, tutors and management that go out of their way to make Reed Business School, a place I look forward to teaching at.
ACCA, FHEA, MRes, MSc, PGCTHE
I have been teaching Business Strategy and all things Tax across the UK since 1999. I used to work at a residential training centre in North Wales and am a great believer in the benefit that can be gained from studying 'on site' in a nurturing environment along with your peers.
ACCA, CTA, PRINCE2
I have been teaching across various ACCA, ACA and CIMA courses since 2014, specialising in strategy, operations and financial accounting. My role as a tutor is extremely satisfying and I love seeing students achieve their career goals through hard work and determination, with smiles along the way. I am an advocate of inclusive learning, and using practical examples to help aid classroom learning and experiences.
Alan left accountancy practice in the mid 80's and is an established freelance tutor and author of accountancy study materials. He specialises in subjects of auditing, corporate governance, management theories for ACCA, CIMA and ICAEW qualifying examinations. He also has examination experience with CIMA where he was chief examiner for 10 years and ACCA where he was Audit and Assurance examiner for 5 years.
I qualified as a South African Chartered Accountant in 2010. Prior to joining academia, I worked as an Audit Manager at Deloitte and was fortunate to be seconded to the Deloitte offices in Dubai (UAE) and Tampa (USA). I teach Accounting and Auditing and have been a lecturer for the past 10 years. I strive to push my students to reach their full potential. I have served on the inspections committee at the Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors (IRBA) since 2019. The IRBA regulates audits in South Africa. I have also been involved in setting and marking the professional exams set by the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA).

I was one of the first Learning Coaches to join RBS back in 2018 - the best bit about being a Learning Coach is getting to know so many different students and seeing their progress over the course of the Apprenticeship. I've supported trainees through accountancy exams for over 15 years but fun fact: I am most definitely NOT an accountant :)
