About David

Published writer of sci-fi, horror & fantasy offers tuition

I have a BA (hons) humanities degree in English Language and Creative Writing.

I am a published writer of science fiction, horror and fantasy short stories and am a trained proofreader/editor - I worked in-house at Trinity Mirror for 11 years until I was made redundant, so I also offer a proofreading/editing/ghostwriting service at £10 an hour.

I have been tutoring for a year now and have taught Creative Writing and English Language - particularly comprehension - at KS3 and GCSE level. My approach is to present the student with a picture of fantasy art, or a title, and ask them to write a story, based on their interpretation of it. I then point out errors in their spelling, punctuation, etc. without the student (hopefully) being aware so, effectively, I am using Creative Writing as a ''Trojan horse''. This, I feel, is more visually entertaining than a page of boring typing - and it appeals to their sense of creativity.

I fervently believe it is important to make a student aware that you are genuinly interested in them and motivated in changing their lives; friendliness, patience, passion and a sense of humour are important aspects of teacher's make-up, in my experience.

As a result, my students have attained excellent grades - especially in Creative Writing, an important component in the comprehension curriculum.

Reference David Greenway

Written by Cherise C
Mr Greenway has been my son's tutor since November. He has a very good rapport with my son and has helped him with his English Language skills. I have found Mr Greenway to be punctual, supportive and always gives very detailed and encouraging feedback to my son's lesson.
My son has his GCSE English Language exam this summer and I expect that Mr Greenway's sessions will contribute to his success.
