Information About Adam - Leeds teacher - (2 reviews)
I am a confident author with journalistic, theatre and publishing experience. I have a Class I BA (Hons) English Language & Literature with an MA in Writing for Performance & Publication. I have worked with companies as diverse as West Yorkshire Playhouse, Theatre in the Mill, Freedom Studios, BBC, Endemol, Lion TV, Dog Horn Publishing, Pink Paper, Leeds Guide and Bent. My first novel, Troglodyte Rose, is a finalist in the 2010 Lambda Literary Awards in New York and I previously won the Spectrum Fantastic Arts Silver Editorial Award in 2008. Two books that I edited and published, Mister Gum by Rhys Hughes and Broken Symmetries by Steve Redwood, are current nominees in the British Fantasy Society Awards (for Best Novel and Best Collection, respectively).
I am experienced in one-to-one tuition and mentoring, and have run programmes of workshops and educational events for the past two years in a formal setting and the past eight years in an informal setting.
I prefer to set out our initial goals up front, so that both the tutee and I have a plan to work from. This enables us to better evaluate the direction the tutoring is going and see specific successes and failures to tailor future sessions. I am relaxed and informal, whilst still maintaining a high level of professionalism. I feel this is the best way to impart knowledge since people are more responsive to someone they can engage with. Ultimately, we will work at your own pace and target those areas you feel most concerned about. I will be punctual, friendly and helpful and will guarantee a positive experience. You are guaranteed expert support.
