Highly-credentialled scholar and author in journalism, media, and communication studies to tutor at all levels. Face-o-face in Melbourne or online packages available.

Methodology

I am a very Socratic teacher, I believe in students coming to the answer through their own inquiry and in debate with the teacher. I do not expect rote learning or memorising for exams. I will set you reading tasks and expect you to participate in discussions with me. I will help with study techniques and essay / dissertation writing, but I won't do your homework for you.

Background

I am a journalist and writer with a great track record and reputation. I have written 8 books on journalism, media and communication and I have taught at university level in Australia, the UK and New Zealand.
I have led courses in digital media, journalism, radio and television, ethics, news writing, PR, communication studies and political communication.

Perfect! Very good !!

Martin's response

Faizan did a good job with this assignment. All the essential elements were there when we started our review together. I helped him fix some issues and we discussed the techniques and style that he'd used. We also explored a couple of grammar issues -- the 'wandering apostrophe' and 'commas hunt in pairs'.

Martin Hirst was one of my lecturers at Edith Cowan University. He is passionate about journalism and about producing good journalists and this makes him a highly engaging teacher. Martin made me more confident in my abilities as a thinker and writer - I will always owe him for the time and effort he put into helping to form me as a journalist.
