Service Description

Phase 1: It is a 1-to-3 course. The main focus of each course is learning how to write fluently and effectively in English with varied sentence structure, ambitious vocabulary and a variety of figurative language. Our courses for the younger students will focus primarily on story telling and writing descriptions and gradually increase in challenge and range of tasks until the students are working on descriptive, narrative, persuasive, discursive and informative writing towards GCSE-level. Each course includes areas designed to build a student’s confidence, ways to improve their writing in terms of sentence structure, vocabulary and figurative language, and lots of hints and tips for how to boost their mark in an exam situation. We also factor in past papers from a variety of well-known independent schools to prepare the students for the range of exams that they may take.
