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 the language and structure in an extract from John Steinbeck’s ‘The Pearl’.  You will be shown how to write about and analyse the effects of the language features as well as how to analyse the effects of structure features. This session will help you to secure a GCSE grade 5 in English Language for your centre-assessed grades / teacher-assessed grades (CAG / TAG), focusing on skills that your teacher will be looking at when making a final assessment.
