Essay writing skills for secondary school to university level students

I believe that essay writing is a skill which anybody can learn to improve at, and these improvements come from learning how to structure an essay, think critically about the topic and title, and even down to the basic level of how to structure sentences.
I will tailor tuition to each student, looking at examples of their work, and taking into account their level and what they want to achieve, to assess what needs to be worked on which we can then discuss in class.
This class would be ideal for those who are in secondary school to sixth-form or at university working towards completing a qualification in an essay-based subject.

Extra information

Please let me know what qualification you are working towards (if any!), and if possible it would be great to receive an example of a recent essay you have looked at before class.

General info

Duration:

60 minutes

The class is taught in:

English, Latin
This class is for all those who want to learn Latin, from complete beginners to intermediate level. My goal is to tailor each class to each student's needs, whether that is to prepare for GCSE or A-level exams or to help someone learn purely out of interest. In a first class we can assess which areas you need to work on, whether that may be grammar, vocabulary or something else. Generally, I see languages as a pattern which is laid out by grammar and then filled in by vocabulary, something which we can go over and then put into practice in classes by doing translations. We can also read Latin texts, possibly set texts for an exam if you are preparing for one, and discuss textual commentary and context. Above all I also aim to encourage a love of Latin language and literature in all those keen to learn.

Presentation Design, Speech Writing and Orathorical Practice
They say talking in public is the no1 fear in the world. How about preparing for it intensively, so when the moment comes, you will be confident, engaged and clear, even if your knees are still shaking? I have been coaching debate and public speaking to young people for 4 years. I have a lot of experience in speech writing and helping others prepare for talking in front of a crowd. What we can achieve together: - learn to compose a good speech -> with all the necessary elements in order to have a persuasive effect - design a killer presentation -> complicated ideas sometimes require visual aid for the public. Learn to let go of comic sans and how not to undermine a good talk with outdated graphic work - practice speaking -> 99%blood sweat and tears. I can help you present over, and over and over again until you are satisfied and confident that nothing can go wrong. Remember that all the great speakers of this world made history by practice, not by intuition or accident. My main goal for this course is that you would acquire autonomy to write your own speeches and manage presentations with less effort by being more and more persuasive.
