Andy Ison

I am a qualified secondary school teacher who specialises in History, Politics and Business Studies. I taught in the UK and overseas for 14 years, working as a Head of History at a school in the Midlands and as Vice-Principal of an international school in Germany. I have delivered lectures and taught a range of courses for Rossett Adult Learning since 2016 covering British and World History as well as politics and current affairs.

In my teaching I aim to be interesting, creative and challenging, looking to enthuse students and to encourage debate. I believe we all learn best when we are engaged with the subject, when we care and feel some passion for it, see its relevance to our own experiences and feel a connection with those who are or were involved. Stories, images, maps and debate all play key roles in these classes so that understanding is added to knowledge.
