Personal Description:

I hold a PhD in English and Film from the University of Exeter (United Kingdom). I have worked as a university lecturer in Canada for two years, and am currently taking year hiatus to write a book which will be commissioned in 2016. I have several years experience teaching university level English literature in both the United Kingdom and Canada. I also work as a script reader for the BBC.

Tutoring Experience:

My teaching experience includes first-year seminars and lectures at the University of Exeter (UK), as well as first and third year English courses at Mount Allison University. I have also done private tutoring in England.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to help students in developing their writing in preparation for university-level English studies. Depending on the student's needs and interests, I would normally work with his/her current curriculum rather than assign additional reading unless required. It always helps when a student is engaged with the subject and thus I try to tailor the learning objective and needs with subjects and texts that appeal to the individual learner. I am also aware of the gaps between high school and university-level academics and endeavour to develop a tutoring plan that will bridge these gaps and help the student be better prepared for the expectations and demands of university.
