Mark Disney

Kolej Tuanku Ja'afar

Mark has been in Malaysia since 1992.

He left Oxford with a degree in English Literature, so inevitably moved into accounting with what is now PwC.

 

He has worked in the education sector as a lecturer, publisher, editor, consultant and salesman, before recently returning to teaching at Kolej Tuanku Ja'afar where he helps students prepare for top-tier universities.

 

He likes politics, religion and football but not necessarily in that order.
