My teaching method is one that follows a mixed approach. For me, it is important to encourage and foster a focused and critical engagement with texts. Close reading is vital to my approach as well as an active, intellectual discussion.
I was until recently an English Literature student at university. My degree has provided me with an in-depth knowledge of English/European literature and their surrounding historical contexts. I have supported both home and international students with essay writing and editing.

Dissertation - During my final year of university I underwent a semester-long research project on the dramatic works of Samuel Beckett. In this time I managed to refine my research and analytical skills in order to meet deadlines I set for myself.
Group project - One of my assignments involved a team-based task: editing a Shakespearean playscript. The task required close attention to detail and creativity when solving textual issues that arose in our attempts to a text of Old English to a script for a modern audience. Such a project was an important, developmental experience for myself as I engaged with new people and refined my interpersonal skills as the assignment demanded that I deliberate with my group and evaluate the decisions of each member to come to a unanimous decision on how to proceed with our script.

Sphinx newsletter - Interviewing Poet-Professor Sandeep Parmar for the student newsletter was a particularly valuable experience. Our discussion about the landscape of contemporary art, literature, politics, and academia which was an enriching experience. I developed a better understanding of how socio-political situations converge and manifest in the art that is being created and published today.
I have also attended a series of guest lectures and literary events in order to broaden my understanding of literature. Such experiences have been immensely beneficial as I have developed both a commercial awareness of the publishing world as well as a privileged insight into the art and craft of today's leading writers.
