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.
I will give one-to-one tuition on academic writing, helping students and writers to bring their pieces to a high standard: appropriate for personal statements, coursework essays, dissertations, and exam preparation. I will coach in syntax, vocabulary, paragraphs and structure.
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 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.
