Having been Curriculum Leader for Film and Media for many years, I have decided to take on new challenges including tutoring. Although I am from the other side of the Pennines I have lived in Yorkshire for longer than I care to remember. I have written several well-received post-16 Film and Media textbooks (available in all good bookstores!), and am a regular contributor to the Removed. I blog at Online tuition also available.

Tutoring Experience

I have successfully taught Film and Media Studies for nearly 25 years at GCSE, BTEC and A level. I have also taught on adult education courses for Bradford University.

Tutoring Approach

It is impossible for all pupils to shine in the results driven environment of schools. Too often pupils are regarded as target grades rather than individuals that require specific attention to their needs and desires. My approach to teaching has always been to celebrate what a pupil can do whilst pushing them hard to improve. I can tutor for any of the UK Film and Media specifications; help with exam preparation and aid (but certainly not do!) coursework.
