TRIALS AND ERRORS - The art of learning from your mistakes

This part of the course is all about gaining insight by seeing things which is generally skipped by others and reading between the lines. What the human eye usually does is if it is reading in a flow and unless or until something is obvious our eyes skip the errors. This part of the course will help you train your eyes to catch them.

Writing and editing go hand in hand. You cannot be a good editor and be a subpar writer. From my experience at times, companies want editors who can create content at a short period of time when their writer are either unavailable or unable to produce content. And writing is all about two things: Mechanics and Strategy.

Here I will also share a few articles with you and we will discuss the ins and outs of it. Here you will take the reins and see how it changes the dynamics of the course.

Extra information

Bring your laptop, good internet connection, a notebook, a pen, some post-its, and a book.

About Me

I have been teaching English as a second language and as creative writing for over ten years. I have taught to students who did not have much command in the language as they were coming from different backgrounds but one thing that I noticed that helped was that children loved creating stories. They loved to make stories. The errors and grammar did not matter at the point. But once we started working on them, I always encouraged them to proofread their own copies so they would find out their own mistakes and learn from them.
then they graduated to proofreading and checking their partner's essays, which was so fun for them.That small habit of proofreading lead to so many editing jobs later on in life for a number of my students.

We will start off by introduction. I will introduce the subject to you and in return you will tell a little bit about yourself. Though it will not be about your like and dislikes and the stuff that we all hated in middle and probably in high school. Here we will talk about why do you think you will do well in Publishing? Why have you chosen this course? Is it just a hobby? Is it just to get extra curricular at your school or college? Or are you seriously considering this? In this class we will learn a little bit about the world of Publishing. The most commonly used diction and symbols. We will even practice for a bit and I will help you understand and learn about the different parts of a book that you never knew existed - or never paid much attention to before.
I want you to think of a world where the art of writing or editing will or cannot come in handy. I still think of hundreds of save the date or wedding invitation cards I have received over the years and the minor details they have gotten wrong or the spellings, it is always one thing or the other. It has been so bad that I have developed the habit of snatching the card and looking for the thing they got wrong – it is my version of Where’s Waldo? The art of editing is quite frankly simple yet daunting. You just need the right tools, teacher, and some resilience. We will be working on your editing skills over the course of one month (initially) and if you feel like it is working for you and you need to make it your career and further hone your skills then you can complete it by doing the full-fledged thing.

Storytelling. Starting point of a good story or script.
Stories are as old as we are, but if you want to put a story on paper or portray a story, it turns out to be more difficult than talking to your friends. How about now? Not what you tell, but HOW you tell it is the most important. The basics and how to use psychology to write a story, this is what you will learn anyway. Those who want to continue afterwards will learn how to write a script. Fiction or facts, you decide what you want to learn.

Video Editing Training Course or audacity and equivalent programs - Just for fun or become a professional!
Editing video can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it. But however complex you want the final product to be, you will find the process far more enjoyable if you take a few moments to prepare from the very beginning, preferably before you even start to record any footage. Conclusion. Video editing is important because it is the key to blending images and sounds to make us feel emotionally connected and sometimes truly there in the film we're watching. It's a safe assumption to say that video editing is among the most important jobs in the film industry.

Nida
French born and raised Tutor able to assist students from the age of 4 to 18
I was born and raised in France and moved to England at the age of 16, which means I completed my Brevet des Colleges in France including 1 year of Lycée. I have previous experience teaching students as I volunteered in a primary school back in 2013. I am able to help students improve their French, enabling them to become more confident in their speech as well assist them in any homework or proofreading of work. I am very flexible in terms of how the lesson will go, as I believe there is no one specific way of learning as everyone has different abilities and learning capacities.

A glorious journey into poetry: creative writing and learning
My classes involve a mixture of discovering poetry in its diverse forms and responding to writing exercises. All activities have the aim of expanding the student's personal relationship with this incredible art form and developing their power to self-express creatively. We will look at how poetry continues to challenge the status quo and can act as a space for connection, emotional healing and rebirth in climates of limitation and struggle. I am passionate about teaching poetry writing because I have seen how beneficial the sharing and crafting of poetry is for mental health; I want to bring this passion into people's lives and am as excited to learn from each student's insights and creations as I am to impart knowledge and feedback. I am an experienced tutor and published poet with a first-class honours degree in English and Spanish from Durham University. My anthology "Poems of Hope" on the subject of mental health, was published in 2019 to fundraise for Mind UK. In October 2021 I am starting a part-time postgraduate course in teaching creative writing with Cambridge University to complement writing and teaching. I have 5+ years of experience tutoring English and have devised and delivered poetry workshops for vulnerable adults as well as tutored creative writing throughout the pandemic. I have also spent a year working with SEN students in secondary education as a teaching assistant. I welcome teenagers and adults who identify as neurodivergent, disabled or struggling with mental health. I hope to hear from you and look forward to journeying into poetry together.
