In-depth essay tutoring and marking with great turnover times to make sure you're never at a loss in class

About the lesson

I will walk you through the whole essay writing process: starting with reading the question and planning, then moving on to essay structure, and finally spending the rest of our time looking at critical thinking and correct terminology. I will then be available to mark your essay for a reduced price with quick turnarounds.

If you would like a £50 5 session essay workshop, the details are as follows:

This course is for A-Level (or the equivalent) English Literature or History students who feel at a loss with their coursework. I will help you through the whole process from start to finish, giving you the tools to become an independent thinker in the process - so you can do it all yourself the next time around!

Lesson structure:

1. Have a look at your question and discuss what it means and what the examiner is looking for. We highlight the most important words and begin planning your essay. We will discuss the types of essay question you can get and how to tackle each of these. By the end of this lesson, you will have a detailed plan for your essay and a good place to start with your reading*. I will ask you to keep note of the quotes and pieces of information you think will be useful for the next lesson

2. We will then look at the evidence you have been able to get on the question at large. This will be built upon using the evidence and information that you have been able to gather through reading and research. We will slot this into your essay plan together so that you have a good idea of where the information should go. We will then discuss how to use this information to form an argument and spend this time coming up with a sentence-long argument for your essay. I will ask you to continue reading, this time looking specifically at what your secondary reading is saying about your topic, as opposed to looking for facts.

3. We will now move on to the essay writing structure. This is where we will look at the PETAL essay writing structure and explain how this fits your essay. We will plan your essay in more detail, using PETAL for each one of your main body paragraphs. Then, if we have any time left over, we will look at your introduction and conclusion (as it is better to have an argument before you write those to stay consistent). I will ask you to write a draft of these paragraphs for the next time.

4. If you have sent your paragraphs to me at least a day before the session, we will have a look at these and mark them, giving you as much feedback as necessary. Otherwise, all your feedback for those will be given on the document, and you can ask me questions through messages. We will also focus in particular on your introduction and conclusion. I will ask you to finish writing those for next time.

5. Your whole essay should come together now! If you have sent me your introduction and conclusion at least a day before this, I will have these ready for verbal feedback to discuss at the beginning of the lesson. We will focus on the bibliography and cleaning up your work, making it look more concise and examiner-ready. I will give you information on different referencing styles and make sure that the whole essay has good flow. This is your opportunity to finish your essay.

Also included is one extra whole essay feedback. This will be sent through the comments on your document, and I will be available to answer any questions you may have about my feedback. If you would like me to read over your essay again, this will result in an extra charge of £5 each time.

You will also get my personal notes on various parts of the essay writing process, including an in-depth worksheet on the PETAL structure and separate worksheets on introductions, conclusions, research and referencing.

All of my personal notes will be available on Edmodo, which is a free service for teachers to liaison with their students. This is where I will also ask you to submit your assignments for marking.

I cannot write the essay for you, as this will go against exam board rules. I can, however, provide detailed feedback and basic proofreading throughout and I am always available to answer questions.

*It is your responsibility to do the necessary reading and research. I will not do these for you, but I will point you in the right direction. If you haven't been able to do this for the lesson, we can reschedule (provided you've told me at least 6 hours before).

Details

If you would like to opt into the 5-session masterclass on essay writing, please message me! It will cost £100 and include material and one extra round of feedback.

Any extra feedback and marking will cost £5 each time with the 5 lesson scheme and will be the price of one one-off lesson otherwise.

Unfortunately, I will not mark your essay for the free first class. That will be spent giving you verbal feedback on your writing, providing you with information on where to start and working out what we need to improve on. If you would just like a tutor who can provide essay feedback, arrange the free lesson with me and then each following lesson will work as a deadline for me to get your feedback to you.

Please note that all cancellations require 12 hours notice. (6 hours if you do the 5 session scheme). If you cancel within 12 hours of the lesson, the full lesson price will be charged.
