Dr Thomas - Battersea - School English

Methodology

Hello, I'm Dr Tom Ogier and I love teaching literature, film, creative writing and similar subjects. I live and work in an art studio in Battersea, and I paint and write novels.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I love teaching literature, film, creative writing and journalism.
At Kent University I also teach 'Reading the Twentieth Century' which involves linking art and writing to its historical context and political movements.
I have also successfully tutored people wishing to apply to universities, including Oxford.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a PhD in Literature, 'Dr of Philosophy in the Novel' an MA in Creative Writing and a BA in English and American Literature and Film Studies.
I am also a Press Association - trained journalist with years of experience in many different areas.

- How much do you charge?

I charge about £35 per hour, depending on where the classes take place, and what the student(s) are interested in.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from my art studio in Battersea - next to Battersea Park - or in mutually convenient places like cafes and libraries, or in the client's place.

- When are you available?

I have great flexibility.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach adults.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I am happy to tutor online, whether through skype or other programs.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I am a friendly, relaxed and approachable person, who takes an interest in what you want from your tuition. I enjoy my work very much.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have many years of experience in both journalism - and a wide range of roles within that profession - as well as years of academic research and teaching at University level. I also tutor people who just want to learn more about / enjoy / develop their appreciation of literature, film, etc ... or write their own material.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

No.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained at Kent University and with the Press Association.
