Personal Description:

I am the author of six books, including John Donne (2007), Mummies, Cannibals and Vampires (2011; 2nd edn 2015); and A Century of Supernatural Stories (2015). As someone whose work has featured extensively in international press, radio and television, I have learned to excel not just as an HE lecturer and researcher, but as a communicator. Good teaching is about enthusiastic and directed two-way communication, and I am a passionate believer in this.

Tutoring Experience:

Since 1997 I have taught English literature at 3 Russell Group universities: Southampton, Cardiff, and Durham, where I now work in what is regularly voted the nation's favourite English Studies department. My teaching involves lecturing, tutorials of 6-8 students, and one to one essay consultations and dissertation supervisions. In 2011/12 I was nominated for the award of Best Lecturer in Durham by Durham Student Union. I have previously undertaken private tuition with both child and adult learners.

Tutoring Approach:

Good tutoring needs three things: structure, encouragement, and attention to individual needs. Having taught a wide range of different students now across almost 20 years, including a number of adult learners, I have learned to attune myself to a particular students strengths and weaknesses, both those which are more obvious, and those which are less so. I believe anyone can succeed at their chosen subjects if they are encouraged and directed with sufficient effort and skill.
