Personal Description:

I'm an Australian living in Broughty Ferry, Dundee. I'm a qualified and experienced high school teacher and have taught English, film and television, history and drama. I also have over twelve years experience in marketing and communications including professional copywriting, managing high profile national and international accounts, managing public relations campaigns and dealing with the national media. I'm a very friendly and reliable and enjoy helping students to appreciate the English language and effective communication as much as I do.

Tutoring Experience:

When I finished my teaching qualification I taught for a year in country Victoria, Australia. As per the above I've also worked as a professional communicator, mentor, writer and editor for various organisations and am very experienced in teaching people how to improve their English and communications. I know what works and what doesn't when it comes to communications and media and can provide pragmatic and knowledgable insights for students studying these subjects. I have a first class honours in creative communication and had a scholarship to study a PhD before my husband got a job in Scotland.

Tutoring Approach:

Approach to English studies: My approach is to look at the student's understanding of English holistically. We'll look at what they enjoy or dislike, what their strengths and weaknesses are, how they think they can improve and how others think they can improve. We'll get to the core of the issues that reduce their ability to communicate using the English language and give them the tools to improve and excel.

When a student begins to harness and become enthusiastic about language and and communication they open up so many more opportunities for good grades in the short term and interesting and continued employment in the long term. 

I can help with speeches, structuring assignments, research methods, creative writing, grammar, spelling, understanding and interpreting literature and any other aspect of English.

Approach to Media/Communications studies: We'll look at creatively workshopping your assignments and projects with the aim of making them as effective as possible. With these subjects I'll very much be looking at real world applications and mentoring students with an aim to equipping them for a career in media/communications.

Overall approach: I'm interested in helping a student to become confident in their own abilities rather than doing the work for them and will suggest interesting ways to approach the potential issues with the assignment or task at hand. I'm also a professional editor so am very experienced in picking up issues with assignments and providing constructive advice. I like keeping students accountable and responsible for their work and will follow up and ask questions about progress.
