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.

In this class students will get an overview of how to analyse a short extract from Act 4 scene 3 of William Shakespeare's ‘Macbeth.'  You will be shown how to consider genre, audience and purpose, how to comment on the effects of language features and how to embed and explain quotations. This session will help you to secure a GCSE grade 5 in English Language for your centre-assessed grades (CAG), focusing on skills that your teacher will be looking at when making a final assessment.
