Geography Essay Writing Workshop

This one day workshop is designed to improve your long answer and essay writing technique. Many students struggle with the step up from GCSE to A-Levels and therefore find 20 mark essay questions a daunting prospect. Yet with large numbers of marks in exams being reliant on essays it is an important skill to develop; a weak essay can often be the difference between grade boundaries. Our experienced tutor Michelle will guide you through the essay writing process and break it down into manageable chunks. You will learn how to plan and structure your essays in the most time efficient way for your exams, before learning how to write your ideas in a coherent and sophisticated way. Integrating and analysing case studies is an important skill, Michelle will teach you how to do this in a seamless manner.

Students will receive an essay writing booklet and other useful and unique handouts including example answers of different levels. You will leave the course with the skills required to further develop your essay writing at home.
