Prof. Smith has been an active member of the King’s community since 2004, after a three-year sojourn in South Korea. He teaches Writing courses for ESL students and is a senior tutor at the Write Place.

"Far too often we want to be perfect. We want to get it right the first time. But writing rarely comes out perfect on the first attempt. I like to encourage students to make and value mistakes because if they’re making mistakes it means they’re trying something new, learning, and challenging and changing themselves. I like to provide my students with the confidence and curiosity to make mistakes."
