Not just for research papers - these six dimensions of critical thinking and writing should also be applied when writing a shorter review or contemplative essay.
Bring your primary texts (the novel or film, for example) and secondary texts (critical essays, analyses etc.) and your chosen thesis or topic to the table and I'll help you clarify your ideas and understanding, and get to work helping you produce polished scholarly prose that possesses clarity of expression, forceful argumentation, and is free of structural, spelling, and grammatical errors. Whether it's a 300- or 3000-word assignment, I can help you get the best out of your brain.
Throughout this essay I will be commenting on the filming techniques that Luhrmann uses and what affects these have on the audience, also I will be analyzing how the film is similar and different to typical Hollywood Musicals....
I have tutored and lectured a number of University film studies courses in Australia and New Zealand, taking in classic and contemporary film, visual arts, philosophy, media and cultural theory. My students were generally undergraduates but there were postgraduate students amongst them - people from all ages and walks of life in my classes, which made for lively discussion. The core of my teaching involved working through film analyses and critical texts with students, and coaching them in academic essay writing. Group presentations were another way for students to experience collaborative scholarship.
The courses I have taught are:
Modern Cinema: modes of viewing (University of Sydney; 2012 & 2014).
Contemporary Hollywood (University of Sydney; 2014).
Editing the Moving Image (University of Sydney/Sydney College of the Arts; 2013).
Cinema and the Digital Aesthetic (University of Sydney; 2014).
History and Criticism of Film (Victoria University of Wellington; 2010).
I can offer expert advice to all upper high school and university students looking to sharpen their English-language assignment/essay writing skills. While I will proofread and edit your work, I offer more than simple advice on English 'proper usage' - I'm confident that, if you wish, I could provide critical feedback on your topic or thesis and help you build a strong piece of academic writing.
