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.

An important lesson in descriptive writing is to show, don't tell! In this class, students will be guided through how to use descriptive techniques using scenario: 'café scene'. Students will learn how to engage readers using sensory description as well as understand the box planning method to structure writing. This class is aimed at students in Year 9 but is great for younger students wanting to push themselves or any student interested in bettering their writing.
