Eilish is an excellent tutor. My son who is 10 years old preparing for 11+ enjoys her lessons. She accepts my comments and do what we need. My son has improved in his creative writing and comprehension skills after Eilish's tutoring. Her constant encouragement makes my son do better each time. Thanks Eilish. Good Luck for your career.

Another great tutorial. This was my final lesson before my final English GCSE. Eilish always prepares with material for the lesson. My teachers have noticed an enourmous improvement in my vocabulary since starting lessons with Eilish. Thanks for your help Eilish.

Questions Eilish has answered

How can I write an introduction that captures the attention of an examiner immediately?

Creating a really gripping introduction for your essay is actually easier than you may think! Really, you only need three sentences arranged in a particular way and you'll be able to draw your reader in instantly. 

Your introduction needs to be shaped like a funnel - so your first sentence needs to be fairly broad in order to draw your reader in, whetting their appetite and getting them interested. Your second sentence makes the reader comfortable - you've grabbed their attention, now they need to settle down ready to engage with the rest of your essay. Finally, the third sentence is your thesis statement - it's here that you actually want to state what you will be arguing in your essay. 

This is an example of a funnel introduction for an essay about the adaptations of giraffes:

Giraffes are highly unusual animals, in that they have an extremely elongated neck - in fact, it can measure up to two metres in length! This extremely long neck is very useful since it enables them to reach food high up in the trees. Indeed, giraffes are adapted in many and various ways, each of which enable them to thrive in their natural habitat. 

So, that funnel introduction opens your essay in a clear, concise way which will definitely draw your reader in. Start with an opening sentence, expand a bit to make a bridge between the opening and your thesis, and then state your thesis. Easy!
