Writing successfully about a text consists of very much more than knowing what happens in each chapter; it is about interpreting events, extracting possible meanings, and organizing these around a theme, using secondary sources to support the writer’s argument.
We work hard to ensure that students know and understand set texts intimately, and build from this base to equip them with the necessary tools to produce a comprehensive, well-rounded, and interesting finished piece of work.
Emphases differ according to the level at which the student is studying, and these are closely considered as the level increases; a full essay plan, with a thesis statement, are essential from GCSE Level and above, and we ensure that the student is sure of this content before they begin writing.
A Level and undergraduate students are often daunted by the length of essays required at these stages of study. Discussion of the requirements demanded, and possible content result in a confident and conclusive essay.
