Lesson

I have helped alot of students (17, as at the last count) prepare for both English as first language and English as second language IGCSE exams, and the results have always been tremedously successful. As I always do when I take up a new student, I try to discover what areas they are good in and what areas they need further reinforcement. And over the years, I have discovered that students do find the writing (Summary writing and essay writing) aspects of the exam a bit challenging, as well as the writer's effect questions. 

To address this, I sometimes try to figure out if the student have a problem with the process of writing itself (Planning, writing and editing), or whether they are limited by vocabulary or ideas for writing. The summary writing issue is usually resolved when students can learn to identify the topic sentence as well as the supporting sentences of each paragraph. All these I try to break down and simplify for them as much as possible.

In the end, it always turns out to be quite easy and fun for the learner.
