Describe your approach to teaching
My approach to teaching combines my skills as a journalist and teacher to give students the tools and confidence they need to write in a simple and straightforward journalistic style.
What inspires your own work?
My inspiration comes from thinking about the reader and finding a great story they want to see. Having plenty of ideas and specialising in various subjects are vital to success.
