Me[edit]

I am Scottish, but live in York. Early in my career I worked as a marine geophysicist, working in offshore/nearshore engineering projects in various far-flung (and near-flung) parts of the world. Tired of the constant travel, I retrained, and now work on dry land, teaching English, maths, history and coding to small people.

CVU Academy.svg CVU Academy Graduate
Congratulations from both myself and all of the instructors at the Counter Vandalism Unit Academy on your successful completion of the Counter Vandalism Unit Academy. You completed your final exam with a score of 100%. Well done! Further information on your achievement can be found here.

It has been an absolute pleasure working with you these past few months. I appreciate your patience as I kept you waiting for feedback much too long on some assignments. Lately, I've been feeling a little discouraged by the whole Counter-Vandalism Academy program—I wasn't sure if it was very helpful for the students or the project, since much of the stuff we covered were things that some editors learn on their own over time. I was delighted to hear that you found it helpful.

Hope to see you around! Mz7 (talk) 04:59, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
