Hi, I’m James. I am a BA (Hons) Media graduate from Sheffield Hallam University. In addition, I am about to begin a Master’s degree in International Media & Communications from the University of Nottingham. I am perspicacious in areas, such as: news media, representations, design, colonialism, genre and research. Please see my website, featuring some of my work and areas of expertise, here: www.jamesandrewtaylor.blog
As a postgraduate student, myself, I feel as though I have a youthfulness and empathy with students, as it's not so long ago I was sitting my GCSE and ALevel exams. Where I may lack some professional experience, my subject knowledge is unrivalled as I prepare to finish my degree with first class honours - this compromise, I feel, is reflected in my fair pricing structure.
I have had work experience in both a Primary and Secondary School. I have recently worked as a consultant teacher on an ALevel Media Studies programme at a Derbyshire Sixth Form, teaching a Year 12 class full-time. In addition, I have a mass of experience of working with children from the age of 8 - 16.
I am a jovial and relaxed character, making it easy to forge relationships; this means I can establish a strong bond with the student and, subsequently, heightens the chance of learning. My vast subject knowledge and excellent communicative skills give me the proficiency to transfer my knowledge, gleaned from GCSE, ALevel and University courses in Media.
I like to look at the skeleton of the syllabus, building layers of knowledge from the basic requirements of the course. Through interesting and modern examples, using relevant scholarly theory and creative methods of revision and application, I can help expand and improve on knowledge of media and communication studies.
