I am here to dispel those myths surrounding what markers are looking for when grading English papers, providing you with a formula for constructing your essays and other written responses. The step-by-step guide I provide will ensure you get the marks that you deserve. All lessons are designed to play to the strengths of my students. This method builds both confidence and knowledge in my students so they can tackle the tricky bits and enjoy the process of learning at the same time.
