I have a BA (Hons) English (first class), MA English (distinction), and PhD in English, all from the University of Exeter, I have published several books and articles in prestigious academic journals. I have been invited to present my research at international conferences. I have very wide-ranging knowledge of film, media, communications and English and US literature, and I very highly developed critical skills. I am also a critically acclaimed songwriter and musician.
I have over 15 years experience teaching in higher education. I have taught undergraduate courses in film studies, media, English and American literature, critical theory, and dramatic writing, among others. I have taught postgraduate courses in film studies. I have also successfully supervised a number of PhD students.
My approach to tutoring is centred on being passionate about the topics I teach, but also on being a great listener. I tailor my approach to tutoring to individual students. I try to understand their individual needs and through this to develop bespoke techniques to get great results. I am keen to encourage active learning, and to teach close textual analysis in particular.
