As a univeristy student I can help prepare High School Graduates or even first year students that will be or are doing Film Studies. I base my lessons on the ones I had by my proffessors, lessons will be a 50/50 mix of practical and theory as well as an array of subjects PERSONALLY CHOSEN by the student themselves. I would love to base everything I teach on what wants to be taught so no time is wasted on anyone's behalf.
I have a 2:1 (soon to be a First due to an appeal) undergreadute degree in Film Studies and are going onto doing a masters, practical experience of 3 years in the film indutrsy, work varied from proffesional director set work with Screen Yorkshire to own indepenedent advertisment videos. Anything from theory, anbalysis, contextualisation or practical based lessons can be taught.
I am a driven, creative and innovative individual who enjoys crafting my own ideas and working to help solve problems.
I am a warm and friendly person who is great with communicating to people, I love helping others and providing great customer service to those who need it. I am open and very easy to talk to, I can communicate quickly,clearly and efficiently to make sure that the person who I'm talking to understands me fully and clearly.
My work at university has helped me out tremendously in working in a team, as a filmmaker I understand how important roles and hierarchy is to make sure that any given task which needs to be completed, can be done so in an efficient manner.
If needed to work in a team; I take all directions & follow them down to the word whilst still being able to use my own initiative when required. I can also function well as a leader of a project or as an asset to the group.
Also, I operate well in busy & stressful environments, my experiences range from live broadcast programming which has been watched by over a thousand people to creating and managing personal projects for clients which I have sought out of my own accord. I thrive on pressure and challenges which give me an extra motivational kick in order to get the job done to a satisfactory effect.

Business Studies BTEC - Pass (Equivalent to C)
Media Studies BTEC- Distinction* (Equivalent to A*)
