I have been an educator for many years as Head of English and Performing Arts. I have gained exemplary status by Ofsted. I have now gained a Masters Degree in how to write a novel and am about to publish my first book. It is all these wonderful skills I bring to my lessons, especially in constructing good stories and the understanding of the genius of Shakespeare. Join me please on this journey of delight as we share the wonder of creativity and excellence. Imagine seeing the true Macbeth, the love of Romeo and Juliet, or the ability to write a story that gets top marks. Learn the beauty of Robert Browning's The Marriage Portrait, the heartbreak of post-war poetry, and the poems of Maya Angelou.I offer Art as well to develop key skills of line and color focusing on the history of Art and Fashion.I will teach and inspire you, and work with you to enhance both writing and historical skills. I offer books and worksheets to enable you to develop skills for successful outcomes, especially exams.I have won many awards with the CILC.


Program Details


I will go through all the steps that are needed for my journey. starting with where and how you prove what you are writing.
Then I will discuss how to take your ideas, match them with facts, and then use imagination and voice to create something compelling. Listen to how I found all the key documents from the files of my parents and witness the Nazis who came into my father's office. But beware. the history must be accurate.


Reading and discussion form a major part of this programme.
Using some of how I have constructed my book I will share ideas and quotes from other authors.
What is the Hero's Journey and how did Joseph Campbell explain this to us?
