Hi - I'm Dr Maddie Smith, a UK expat living and working in the Paris area as a self-employed private tutor and tour guide at parislens.com!
I love learning and sharing knowledge, and my mission in life is to help others enjoy their passions and reach for their dreams, as I have!
A graduate from the University of Hull, I have a PhD and first class degree in film studies, with a specialism in vigilantism in American history, society & culture! I am a published writer on the topic, with other publications on sex, society, TV studies, film theory, screen violence & feminist theory.
PRIVATE TUITION: I have lecturing experience in a wide range of social, cultural and historical studies, and specialise in academic improvement, development and support. I can tutor, mentor, proofread, and offer support on pretty much any social sciences and humanities degree - just ask!
TOUR GUIDING: I also have an extensive background in tour guiding, and in environmental and conservation issues! Because of this I also provide a range of public, private and group guided walking tours around the city on topics like film, history, literature, and more, with an educational and entertainment angle! Aside from my set tours, I also tailor-make tours that you want - just ask!
Contact me via my 'contact' tab, or check out parislens.com for bookings and enquires. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this! I hope to meet you!
Best wishes, Dr Maddie S
