Award-Winning Feature Film Director, Screenwriter and Producer with over 16 Years Professional Experience as a Film/Cultural Studies Lecturer in the UK
Looking for a private 1-to-1 teacher who is not only experienced but also passionate about their subject matter? Look no further than Brett! With a BA (Hons) in Writing and Literature, an MA in Literature with Film and a PGCE in Post-Compulsory Education, Brett has been teaching and lecturing since 2004 at colleges and universities in the UK, and was also a Personal Tutor for 11 years. Brett's specialisms in Film Studies, Media Studies, Film/Media Production, Screenwriting, English Literature, Cultural Studies and Creative Writing, coupled with his extensive experience in independent film/video screenwriting, directing and producing since 2005, make him the ideal teacher for anyone looking to improve their understanding of these subjects.
Since 2004 I have successfully taught at Levels 3, 4, 5 and 6, as well as at a professional level, in colleges and universities in the UK.
From this experience I have found that the most effective, efficient and fulfilling approach to teaching and assessment is to primarily engage in an active and informed discussion with the student about the topics and/or issues at hand.
In turn, this discussion should be supported not only by the textual and audio-visual learning materials I provide, but also by the detailed annotations the student makes and then researches independently at a later date.
In this way the student will take then ownership of their learning and, ultimately, learn to teach themselves.
