My Profile

a photo of myself, Ken Surridge, tutor at KSLearning and chair of Porridge and Rice


I read voraciously, adore playing Bridge, love listening to Radio 4, enjoy music from modern to classical, and keep a range of small animals as pets.

I earn my living by teaching privately, and when not working, I lead a charity called Porridge and Rice with a committee, all of whom are volunteers.
