Giles was an absolute delight to work through my essay with and I passed too ☺️🙏
Good Lesson
Enjoyed introduction to poetry. Mr Goodlands knows how to engage a novice taking them step by step into the subject.
People often do not know where to start with poetry, and the books give contradictory advice. I am a widely published poet and experienced and knowledgeable teacher, able to give advice, exercises, constructive feedback, and engaged classes with a no-nonsense approach to what works in a poem, and how to structure and revise effectively.
I am an experienced and knowledgeable English Literature teacher with an Oxford University Doctorate. My approach is friendly and supportive, stressing the importance of understanding the text and practising writing essays that refer to the correct topics and are well structured.
I am a widely published poet and experienced and knowledgeable teacher willing to give poetry classes at any level, whether you are struggling to write your first poem or are assembling a first collection. My approach is constructive, friendly and approachable. I listen to the needs of my students in our first lesson, and will propose a plan of lessons based on what you hope to achieve. This may include setting prompts, tasks, and exercises, going through your writing, suggesting extra reading, and giving constructive feedback.
