Kitan CoxHost: As an experienced secondary English teacher, I have taught GCSE and A-Level English (Language and Literature), Media Studies, Extended Project Qualification, Critical Thinking and Drama in a wide range of educational settings in London and Surrey (outstanding secondary schools, academies and a further education college). I am also been involved in motivating students through extracurricular activities inside and outside of school. Additionally, I have a certificate in Life Coaching.

Being able to express your opinion in a clear, concise and structured manner is essential. In this class, students will be given an overview of how to write a web article for a specific opinion writing assignment: ‘Strict parents create rebellious children.’  They will be shown how to use a range of persuasive techniques as well as how to structure a winning argument.
