It creates a cozy atmosphere where people have fun and feel relaxed. Learning does not have to be boring but can be fun and fulfilling. This is the main motto of the classes!
Creative writing - Poetry in English - Learn how to write beautiful poetry
In the modern world, the significance of poetry is overlooked. From Aristotle to Derrida (the range is not comprehensive), literary theory has maintained that a poem's power is measured in its affect. Throughout this course, our goal will not be to make inscrutable poetic analysis - though the first part of the lesson will be spent analysing word choice, meter, line length and spaces of an English poem written between pre-modernism and postmodernism. Rather, through our perusal of poetic form we will be able to ground our work, somewhat modestly, in the English poetic tradition. Before the first class you will send me some of your own work so I know how to build or refine aesthetic temperament. I have been writing poetry for ten years and two years ago I published a chapbook at a press with competitive standards, and I am currently working on a full-length collection. If you wish to take up poetry seriously, time is needed and an eye for detail is essential. I look forward to us broadening our aesthetic sensibilities together.
Speak With Confidence: Better English Through Poetry and Verbal Reasoning. Improved speaking, understanding, and grammar.
This course was originally developed for a Poetry Olympiad to train high school competitors in a crash-course. It has two components: 1. Poetry. The poems are selected for their ease of understanding and complexity of performance. Each poem is read aloud in at least two different readings, with focused training on emphasis, pronunciation, and meaning. 2. Verbal Reasoning Tests. These are commonly used to test English understanding. Each test gives a short paragraph then four statements which can be true, false, or not given. In making your decision and double-checking for what's actually being said (rather than implied) you can learn to effectively understand complex or technical English texts. The course is intended for ten sessions. An initial session will introduce the material and adjust the level of the lessons to your personal needs. Further sessions will include one poem and one verbal reasoning test. Homework between sessions will involve practicing the next poem and reading the next Verbal Reasoning Test (around 200 words).

Reading & Writing Skills, Maths & English Language
Before I begin the Reading & Writing, Maths or English Language tutoring, I assess the child's needs and talk to them and their parents about the support that they would like. I aim to make my sessions as interesting and creative as possible to engage the children and ensure effective learning. The session is spent primarily with me teaching or working through a problem with a child. There's little to no benefit in a child working tirelessly through a task independently with me just sitting watching! As a father, a football coach and a former student with two A*s (one in Further Mathematics) and 5 A grades in my GCSEs (one in English Language), I understand how difficult it can be to support your own child in their learning. I will therefore also support with school homework and extra reading when required.
Improving Your Writing To Become A Published Writer
Using my wealth of experience in creative writing, production and publishing, I will teach you everything you'll need to know about your chosen area of writing, from turning an idea into a plan, right up to getting the finished article out there. I can help to bring your poetry to life, teach you the fundamentals of publishing a short story, or even help you to self-produce a play. I prefer a collaborative approach to teaching, where student and teacher work together to bring out each others potential. I like to tailor the sessions to their interests, getting a flowing conversation and finding the core of the students needs. I feel it's most important to develop a learning plan around the student.
