Our live interactive class, with a maximum of 16 pupils, covers

  • Technical skills of writing:
    – vocabulary development: how to express thoughts through powerful and distinctive word choices
    – description: how to build a descriptive style ready for use in the exam room, using adjectives, imagery and figures of speech.
    – sentence building: how to use different sentence types to express a range of thoughts, feelings and attitudes.
    – paragraphing and punctuating: how to structure thoughts clearly, precisely and with technical accuracy.
    – drafting and redrafting: how to eliminate mistakes and maximise marks.
  • How to develop responses to different writing tasks:
    – creative: composing narratives and stories.
    – persuasive: incorporating emotional words and phrases, rhetorical questions and details to persuade a reader to their way of thinking.
    – argumentative: developing a powerful, convincing argument through structured, authoritative writing.
  • Writing in the style of an author, a task found often in independent school writing exams.
    – How to plan effectively in a short space of time, step by step, with a multi-layered approach to building texts.
    – How to write to time under exam conditions.
    – Marking and feedback.

All course materials are included, and pupils leave the course with additional materials which they can use after the course has finished.
