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.

Do you want to secure at least a Grade 5 in GCSE English Language for teacher-assessed grades? Today's session is based on the specific assignment: Compare the presentation of the experience of war in ‘Charge of the Light Brigade’ and ‘Bayonet Charge.’ In this class, students will get an overview of how to write comparatively about poems in the Power and Conflict Anthology as well as how to write critically about the poems. Students in Years 10 and 11 will benefit greatly from using this class for revision!
