I am a qualified Teacher of English as well as Head of Year 8 in the independent sector. I recently completed an MSc in Learning and Teaching at Oxford University, specialising in the use of target setting to raise attainment and accelerate progress in the English classroom. I was awarded a First Class BA (Hons) degree in English Literature and Classical Civilisation and I also have a PGCE from Bath University.
I have experience of tutoring pupils on their essay writing skills, exam preparation, creative writing and textual analysis. I am also prepared to proofread or copy edit essays; as I have many years' experience in examining and moderating GCSE and A Level essays, I understand what the examining boards want from coursework.
I am currently doing AQA English literature as a-level, can any aqa examiner mark my essays? (Obviously I will pay)
Is there anyway someone could help me with my english Coursework. It is edexcel and i am in the first year of A levels (AS).
I am home schooling (only for English) my 12 year old son in Greece and would like some clarification on wtriting to inform.
There is much information on the web that states what should be included in writing to inform. For instance: It is factual,unbiased, impersonal, focuses on WHO, WHAT, WHERE AND WHEN. Also may include some diagram, pictures or bullet points (bbc bitesize).
Other sources emphasise the 5 w's. So we are missing the WHY from the above source. However bbc goes on the say that when we include the WHY this is classed as explaining, is written in the present tense but focuses on WHY.
So do I tell my son to include WHY in the basics of writing to inform or should I leave it as an ingredient used for writing to explain...?
Also, are there any flashcards or info sheets that would help my son to follow a set or rules when writing in difference styles. He seems to have issues with prewritng.
Thanks for your time.
I often include this in my work, however for A-level English Literature I feel as if there could be a better and more formal way of saying this term. Does anyone know of any better ways of saying this? Thanks :)
