About me

Hi, I'm Molly, a third year Flexible Combined Honours student at Exeter, majoring in Classical Studies, Teaching and Drama.

I've a passion for helping others (I wish to study a Secondary English PGCE next September!) and have been fortunate enough to incorporate this into my degree where I've used the opportunity to spend time in schools as a teaching assistant as well as conducting a study into Behaviour Management. 

Previous tutoring experience has included English GCSE tutoring while I was in Sixth Form as well as English and Performance Studies ALevel tutoring during my time at university.

Questions Molly has answered

How do I structure a successful essay? PEE(A) method.

Once you have chosen the topic areas you are going to explore, structuring an essay can be easy! Following a simple guide such as the PEE(A) method I'll explain below can ensure you don't lose unneccessary marks.

Introduction

A good introduction should be a short well-worded paragraph that introduces your text(s) and the specific subject areas you are going to explore. Three subject areas tends to be a good amount to study in one essay. 

Each subsequent paragraph

Point. This opens your paragraph and therefore should be a short and snappy introduction to the subject are you will discuss in the paragraph.

Evidence. Quotes, especially embedded quotes serve well for evidence. However, if you are writing an essay in exam conditions and are unable to recall a quote in its entirity, describing the moment also works.

Explanaiton. This is the section of your essay where you gain the most marks. However, many people fall into the trap of repeating the evidence and continue to describe the evidence. To stop this I like to interchange Explanation with Analysis. The question 'why?' is key in this part of the essay. It is also where you should draw in another text if your essay is comparative.

Conclusion

Many people struggle with conclusions as they seem to just repeat what you've discovered in the main body of the essay. This, however, is the point! In a conclusion, make sure you re-word some of your key findings from each paragraph and link them back into the question.
