Personal Description:

For as long as I can remember I have had a love of reading, which developed into a love of theatre, especially the works of Shakespeare. Much of my time recently has been spent immersed in Literature, Poetry and Drama, but I also have other interests. Outside of academic subjects I love to cycle, my wife and I having cycled in many European countries, as well as completing the iconic Lands End to John O'Groats charity ride in 2012. I also focus a lot of my time on a positive attitude to all things, rather finding solutions than seeing obstacles.

Tutoring Experience:

Whilst I have the greatest regard and respect for all schoolteachers, I am not one and have no wish to be one. I believe tutoring is a wholly different discipline to teaching in a school, primarily because of the advantage of a one-to-one format which, coupled with a passion for my subject, leads to rapid gains. For ten years I worked as a Dept. of Transport driving instructor, running my own successful driving school. Indeed, for me, I consider my lack of formal teaching experience to be a considerable advantage which allows me to 'think outside the box'. I am also able to help with essay writing and presentation, in terms of proofreading and editing, one of the pitfalls for many people studying Literature.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to Tutoring is similar to my approach to all adult learning. For me, the key is to build upon existing knowledge in a comfortable one-to-one environment, where it is possible to exchange ideas about any topic without fear of censure. Asking questions and giving time for considered thought, leads to a wider knowledge of Literature than simply reading and note taking. My depth of subject knowledge means I can approach all types of Literature from many angles.
