After obtaining a Bachelor degree from Cambridge University I undertook a Master’s degree in Creative Writing at Birmingham University.  After which I pursued a career in writing, I am a professional writer with twenty years of experience, my credits include features for The Times and Guardian as well as ghost-writing a number of published autobiographies. I started teaching and tutoring creative writing in 2007.  I also ran creative writing courses for degree level students at Wilton’s Theatre London (2016/17)and Chichester Festival Theatre (High Tide, 2015).  

Let's get to the heart of your issues and see where and how I can help you.

About my sessions

The first priority is to get to the heart of the problem, we set the aims for the lesson, I will then propose a plan of how we will tackle it in that lesson. As interactively as possible we work together to create a "method, practice, produce" system, which will at first involve going over the issue, laying out the knowledge base - for example, if we are looking at a particular essay question, we will talk about the question and understand it, then I will ask you to give me your thoug...

The first priority is to get to the heart of the problem, we set the aims for the lesson, I will then propose a plan of how we will tackle it in that lesson. As interactively as possible we work together to create a "method, practice, produce" system, which will at first involve going over the issue, laying out the knowledge base - for example, if we are looking at a particular essay question, we will talk about the question and understand it, then I will ask you to give me your thoughts on the content and materials needed to complete the essay, we will work on that together, progressing through a text, or a number of texts to find examples to back up our opinions. It could be a literature question or poetry or anything to do with your writing, from degree level to GCSE. My aim is to get the student to realise they have the answers, all we need to do is have the tools to apply it. If the knowledge is lacking in some areas, my job is to source texts and support the student in studying to store it.
