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.

Could you use punctuation more effectively in your writing? In today's class students will take a deep dive on punctuation. Students will cover the different types of punctuation available and the correct usage of it. By the end of the class students should be able to use and understand more advanced punctuation such as colons, semicolons, hyphens and dashes confidently in all pieces of work. This class is aimed at students in Years 7/8 but is a great lesson for all ages!
