I have taught at the University of East Anglia (p/t) since 2000, teaching creative writing and previously American literature.

I currently teach on the Access to HE course for Norfolk County Council's Adult Education (I've also taught for the Continuing Education dept at UEA) and teach across the region, so I have worked with a range of students from teenagers to much more mature learners (I've had 2 students in their 80's). I also co-ordinated Summer Schools for 7 years so have worked with year 10 and year 11 students (ages 14-16)

Yes
