Hi! I am a doctoral researcher at the University of Warwick, working on seventeenth and eighteenth century English drama. I am passionate about enabling my students with the same enjoyment and command of English and Theatre Studies with which so many teachers have inspired me. I have published articles on a range of subjects and am currently preparing a monograph on the relations between publishers and readers, audiences and literary canonisation.
I have taught small classes on a variety of undergraduate university modules including Shakespeare, and Medieval and Renaissance poetry. I also have extensive experience in providing supplementary tuition to these students on a one-to-one basis. I am, additionally, an associate fellow of the Higher Education Authority, for which qualification I have engaged in a variety of pedagogical research.
The best learning occurs when a student is encouraged to engage with a text on their own terms. By finding points of entry to the work that are meaningful to the individual learner, they are afforded ownership of the material that facilitates a full comprehension and interrogation of both its form and content. Considering the difficulty of catering to the needs of all learners within a group environment, just a very small amount of specifically-tailored discussion, and focused engagement on threshold concepts, can have significant implications across a student's other learning activities.
