How do I improve my essay writing skills?

We'll use a variety of exercises to improve your essay techniques.  As well as looking at examples of well written essays, we'll look at your own work to see if you can spot your own areas of weakness to work on. Over the course of our sessions the exercises we do will build up your essay technique so before you realise it you'll be writing like a pro!
