I am also been involved in motivating students through extracurricular activities inside and outside of school. Additionally, I have a certificate in Life Coaching.

Narrative writing comes in many forms but one thing stays the same, it tells a story. In this class, students will get an overview of how to structure narrative writing, based on a specific narrative writing assignment: ‘Write a story that involves a detective.’ They will be shown how use effective characterisation as well as adopting the narrative arc in order to structure a story that is intriguing and enjoyable for readers. This class is great for students in Year 8 and above who want to improve their writing!
