Improve your Creative Writing with an experienced tutor!

This class will focus on practical ways to improve your creative writing, whether you write prose, poetry, or drama. We will workshop your writing, focusing on, amongst other topics, characterisation, plot, form, dialogue, word choice, and clutter. I'll make some of my own recommendations based on my experience tutoring creative writing, and suggest some things for you to read and explore so that you can help yourself. Each lesson, we'll either look at something completely new that you've written, or, if requested, we can look at something specific over a number of lessons.

Extra information

Work needs to be submitted to me 24 hours before the lesson.

Experience / Qualifications

Five years teaching and tutoring experience, alongside my PGCE. I have taught UK GCSE and A-Level, the South African National Curriculum, and some IB.

I would be delighted to help English speakers of all abilities improve their writing, speaking, reading, and listening. I will always work at a student's pace, while ensuring they are constantly challenged. Learning a new language should be an exciting process, and I will, above all, aim to make sure this is the case.

Learn How to Write Essays for School the Enjoyable Way
Essay writing, whether it's a short story, personal essay, or critical essay on a text, can be very daunting. Over the last six years, I have helped and tutored many students toward enhancing their creative and critical essay writing skills in a school setting. I specialise in teaching primary and secondary school students how to write creatively for school and for fun. However, I also have years of experience with regard to teaching how to write critical essays on all kinds of texts. After each lesson, I assign homework and I also provide progress reports. These reports will help identify areas for improvement. My goal is to help students overcome their fear of essay writing by making their learning contextual and fun so that they can recognise essays as an essential and enjoyable part of their academic development.

Writing coach - creative writing, playwriting, papers
As a writer (mainly playwriting, but also songs, columns and essays) I'm very interested in helping you either to start writing, or to better your writing. We'll work mostly by practicing and discussing your work. If you prefer to zoom in on theoretics, I'm happy to guide you in that as well. I'm a professional playwriter and dramaturg (and studied at LUCA School of Arts with Nico Boon, Freek Mariën and Nathan Vecht). I previously taught playwriting in different groups (CREA, Buitenkunst) and work as a scriptadvisor for professional theatre makers. Besides that, I often help people in writing resumes, papers and thesis papers.

Creative Music Expression - Understanding Music
Would you like to approach the creative writing of music? Would you like to fully understand the languages and the way music works? Can I help you! Like any form of creative expression, music has its rules, rooted in perception and in the context around us. We can work on fundamental concepts of musical expression, valid in all genres and also immerse ourselves in the area that interests you most (baroque, classical, pop, jazz ...) My course has a non-academic approach and it is open to all: whether you are professionals who want to deepen their musical knowledge, or you are amateurs or beginners we can build the perfect course for you and that will allow you to express yourself or simply to better understand the music you are listening to. The only thing I highly recommend is knowing how to read music, because it allows us to go much faster. If you are not able, we can start there.
