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 evaluate the writer’s choices based on a specific extract from ‘The War of the Worlds’. You will be shown how to write evaluatively about language features as well as structural techniques in a specific text.

This session will help you to secure at least Grade 5 in GCSE English Language for your teacher-assessed grades (TAGs), we will take an in depth focus on the particular skills that your teacher will be judging when making a final assessment.
