About me

I am a student at the University of Edinburgh, studying Social Policy and Law (MA Honours) and due to graduate in 2018. I completed my IB diploma in June 2013, at the International School Hannover Region, with my HL subjects being English, German, and Art. 

I plan to pursue a career in teaching and will be striving to gain a masters in Education following my current degree.

I am more than happy to help you by reading through and editting your English and German assignments. I have honed my writing and editting skills through work for the student newspaper, and journalism internships with The Scotsman and the German publication BILD Zeitung.

Additionally, I applied to universities in South Africa, North America, the UK, and Ireland and would be more than happy to help with university application queries, or reading through personal statements. I have done hours upon hours of research about university requirements, rankings, and statistics and would love to pass on some of my accumulated knowledge.

Questions Alex has answered

Please outline the English language and literature paper one for me

In outlining this paper, there is a very specific structure that must be followed to achieve top marks. First, introduce your topic, setting out the 5 areas you plan to discuss. Then have a paragraph (or two) for each of the five topics: audience, content, tone, style, and structure. Context is equally important, I suggest that you include details about this in your introduction as it lays a good foundation for your writing. 

For each topic, you should evaluae the differences and similarities within the text. There are two ways to do this. (1) You can first target the "Big 5" concepts for text one, then do text two, and then compare. (2) Or you can evaluate and compare each text in reguard to content, then structure, and so on. Either way is acceptable.
