Personal Description:

I am an English, Journaism and Creative Writing graduate, Creative Writing postgraduate and trainee English teacher at the University of Strathclyde. I have had poetry published online, as well as in two printed anthologies. Whilst I specialise in poetry, I am also competent and qualified in teaching children’s literature, fiction and creative non-fiction. Please note that I have very limited experience in scriptwriting and screenplay. I have been fully checked by Disclosure Scotland and deemed fit to work with children and vulnerable groups.

Teaching Experience:

I have previous experience in one-to-one tuition, group writing workshops as well as experience working with classes as part of a creative writing initiative in schools across Glasgow. I am currently training to become a secondary teacher at the University of Strathclyde.

Teaching Approach:

Creative Writing, as a subject, is about the development of key skills, rather than the learning of information. I aim to build an approachable, friendly and relatable rapport with tutees during sessions. The goal is to make tutees feel more at ease than in the typical classroom setting to assist in building the confidence to demonstrate and further develop the fundamental language, literacy and literary skills required to produce quality work. I will look to channel the development of these skills through relevant discussions, exercises and feedback pertaining directly to the tutee’s own written work, as well as examining some published works that the tutee may learn and take inspiration from.
