Personal Description:

I am passionately interested in philosophy and culture, especially film and literature. I am writing an extended comparative study of Hitchcock and Preminger; some of my work is being published online. I enjoy tutoring because I engage with an interesting variety of people, teach stimulatingly diverse topics and earn enough money to allow me to concentrate on my academic research and writing. That all makes me sound horribly serious, but I am cheerful, friendly and love a laugh. I enjoy watching (my playing days are long over) football and cricket, walking, cooking and eating.

Tutoring Experience:

I have thirty-two years' experience in a wide range of educational contexts: universities in England, Italy and Cyprus; secondary and further education in England, Scotland and Wales; the private sector with communication training companies and private language schools in Britain, Greece and Albania. I have taught many one-to-one courses to an even greater variety of students, from senior military officers and business executives seeking to perfect their presentation skills to troubled teenagers excluded from school for violent behaviour.

Tutoring Approach:

The crucial element in successful tutoring is flexibility. I have no one approach, or rather my approach is to discover what the student needs to learn and how they are most likely to learn this most effectively. I then plan and deliver the lessons according to these discoveries, but am always ready to change my plan at any moment in order to help the student. A student learns most when relaxed, so I aim to create a supportive, encouraging atmosphere. I know from my many successes that all students have the potential to learn so much, if only the right stimuli can be created and feedback given.
