Creative Writing: All Pathways (Screenwriting, Novel, Short Story, Poetry etc.)

Creative Writing is a subject for those with imagination, talent, and a passion for literature, film and television, poetry and so much more. Whichever pathway you wish to discover, this class will give you the necessary skills to develop and explore different styles of writing, giving you an example of industry-standard work.

This class can help you work towards English Language/Literature/Creative Writing qualifications at many different levels, hopefully inspiring you to pursue a university education or career in this field. However, if you simply wish to explore your talent in fiction writing, I can provide insight into the industry and university level education of this subject.

Extra information

You may use your laptop or a notebook. If you would like, find a copy (physical or digital) of your favorite novel/poem/short story, or if you enjoy screenwriting, an example of your favorite film or television show. This is a fun way to learn about what you enjoy and may like to write.
COVID-19: I will wear a mask when sitting with the student and/or socially distance as per the parent's requests.

About Me

I am a Brunel University London Graduate (BA Creative Writing & MA Creative Writing: Screenwriting), with a passion for writing film and television, as well as prose fiction. I have two published short stories; 'The Pomegranate Tree', a fantasy retelling of a Greek myth, and 'Polly-amorous', a dramatic romance in which a couple explores the highs and lows of polyamory.

In 2018, I wrote and co-produced a short film entitled 'Ava', an LGBTQ+ drama following the life of a pre-transition transgender teenager.

I have experience in tutoring students in the many pathways of Creative Writing as well as working with industry experts and professional writers, all of which I am eager to share with the bright minds of all ages.

French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: The objective is above all to acquire effective tools. The pupil will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, to argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and to enrich his vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.

Tailor-made private lessons - Project support and follow-up: film, documentary, web video
Tailor-made private lessons - Project support and follow-up: film, documentary, web video with a filmmaker with 10 years of experience - writing, filming, editing, with material available This course is suitable for both beginners who want to understand their tools and more advanced who want to perfect their working method or their creative approach. My learning philosophy is based on the principle of continuous tailor-made monitoring of your needs and your means. We can meet monthly for long-term follow-up or weekly for a quick learning of techniques and working method. I prefer to start with a meeting. Thus we establish the framework and the objectives of the course. My watchword is friendliness. The rest depends on your desires and your means. We discuss: - Writing with method (Screenwriter) - The preparation of a film (Production assistantship, camera assistant, dop) - The shooting techniques (Camera, sound, staging, decoration, costume, artistic direction) - Data management (DIT) - Post production (Editor, calibrator)

British and American Culture and Literature, Minority Literatures
Literature in English language is a very broad term. The biggest number of popular English language texts comes from the USA and the UK, however, there are many other places where English is spoken as a native language and interesting texts are produced. You can learn with me the following subjects: 1. American literature (including native American literature). 2. British literature (including Welsh and Scottish literature). 3. Selected areas of literature in English from Canada, Australia, India and South Africa.

All levels from A1.1 to the end C2. Personally I prefer to apply the action method in my classes instead of learning grammar in an explicit way. Each learner normally has his own goals and tastes. It is up to the teacher to pursue an approach that best suits your needs. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Peishan
Chinese turor for Chinese/ Mandarin (simplified and traditional )
Giving my background in Foreign Languages and Literature as my bachelor study, and Adult and Continuing Education as my master degree, I gain great professional abilities in languages and education. Since I was 18 years old, I've been offering language teaching to the students, who are from 5-70 years old. I possess a wide range of Mandarin teaching experiences that I've given one-to-one and group classes before, and even online classes to people all over the world, through which I gained all the experiences teaching people with all the different culture and also all levels from A1-C2, and even with the clients who need to prepare for Mandarin verification exams( HSK, Hànyǔ Shuǐpíng Kǎoshì). When it comes to the most forgettable teaching experience I've ever had, I think it was my former job that I gave language and culture class in a community university for 3.5 years. There, I merged language teaching, diversified culture, with European and South-East Asian cooking, and it was certainly a great fun. I am now also working in the international school in Geneva for the IB exam system, which is pretty challenging, but it broadens my abilities. With more than 10 years of working in the Mandarin as well as English tutor/ teaching field, I believe my qualifications will match your learning requirements.

Manel
English and French Classes / English and French Classes
English is a very important language because it is spoken by many people around the world. It must therefore be studied properly and thoroughly since it will surely be easier to find a job later if you master this language. But before speaking English, one must already master French perfectly. That's why I offer English and / or French language lessons with literature exercises to learn more easily.
