School reading tutoring from a 1st Class Hons graduate in Creative Writing with publishing and proofing reading experience.

Methodology

My core teaching method is positive reinforcement, I believe that people of all abilities can be given the techniques and knowledge they need to feel inspired, through patience, structure, and tailored pathways, such as auditory, kinesthetic, visual or practice revision.

Background

I studied English Literature at A Level, getting an A on my final written exam, then went on to study my BA Hons in Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam University, which included close literary study, and mastery of many written disciplines, getting a 1st Class Honours, the top grade.
I worked for 2 years at Pen & Sword books, proof reading, marketing, and designing, as well as being published in Memories of Barnsley magazine.
I now blog online and use my words to an audience of 11.7 thousand followers.
Currently I am working on my first solo novel.
