Master's Graduate in English Literature and Creative Writing offering sessions in Bangor

Methodology

I aim to tailor my teaching to the student to ensure that they receive the most applicable help possible. I see no purpose in teaching in a broad style in smaller class/one to one sessions. I aim to make Literature and writing as enjoyable as possible, as I feel as though the more a person can enjoy the process, the more likely they are to develop their skills at a faster, more efficient rate.

Background

My name is Ben Dickinson and i am a graduate of Bangor University with a MA in English Literature and Creative Writing. I have undertaken a PGCE, but had to withdraw due to ill health. Looking to utilise the skills i've learned throughout the course to educate in any way i can
