Justin Arnold - Teacher, Writer, Programmer, and Stormtrooper

I am... a teacher

Computer Science

I teach computer science to GCSE level, working from Scratch and Small Basic to BBC Microbits, Python and VB.Net


I've taught ICT across KS3 and 4 since 1996, and provide many of my resources on the TES Resources site.

Google Educator

I am a certified Google Educator (Level 2), and deliver training to schools on using Google Apps for Education, including Google Classroom.


I produce ICT based video tutorials through my YouTube channel, which has thousands of subscribers and millions of views.

I am... a writer

I am an author, having written and published two children's books, and a non-fiction book on creative writing. My books are available to purchase through many popular retailers, including Amazon.

I am currently working on several new book projects, including a science fiction novel (Eric and the Theory of Everything), another children's book (Captain Bogey's Horrible Adventures), and an educational book (Memory Coaching for Schools). I have an author's website which you can visit here - books.justinarnold.uk

I am... a stormtrooper

For several years now I have supported two children's charities by dressing up as an Imperial Stormtrooper from the iconic Star Wars films and taking part in a variety of feats, including over 1,000 miles of long distance running across the UK.

Later this year I'll be climbing Mount Snowdon dressed in full stormtrooper armour.

You can find out more about my charity work as a stormtrooper by visiting www.stormrunning.com, and you can support my latest venture by visiting uk.virginmoneygiving.com/stormtrooper.

I am... always busy

Software Development

I write software, both for retail and available free. My latest project is The Wordometer, a tool to help writers avoid distractions while working.


Pyrography is the art of drawing and writing with fire, using tools to burn images on wood or leather. I enjoy creating items, which are available to buy through my website pyrogifts.com.


I am a keen photographer, and enjoy being an active part in various online communities. A selection of my recent images can be found on Flickr.com.

Gaming Tutorials

As a keen gamer I produce a variety of how-to videos on YouTube helping other gamers how to achieve certain things or improve their understanding.

I am available for freelance.
Can't wait for the next project! Could it be yours?
