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.
