Tute’s team of experienced teachers have planned our lessons to work alongside what students are studying in school; to enable catch-up, to consolidate something that was difficult to master in class or to help revise for exams. To make is easy to choose lessons for different subjects, year groups and levels, we have organised lessons into topics that are fully aligned with the National Curriculum ensuring a comprehensive coverage of the curriculum that makes sense!
All you need to do is select the topic and then the level you feel is appropriate and you will find a list of suitable lessons that you can book for just £10 ex VAT
To understand the writer
In this topic, we will explore how a writer uses language to create tone and specific effects. We will consider writing techniques such as descriptive language, sensory language and choosing specific vocabulary for effect. By looking at a variety of text examples, we will examine how writers use language in novels, short stories and even single sentences to alter tone or create effects and elicit emotive reactions from the readers.
How writers use sensory language.
Identifying the ‘tone’ when analysing writing.
To examine what the terms ‘denotation’ and ‘connotation’ mean.

Using language for effect
This topic supports students in developing their understanding of how they can craft their language to achieve effects. We will consider what the purpose of words are within sentences, and what we can do with them to make our writing more interesting. We will consider the impact had by the writer’s choice of narrative voice in texts and refine our use of ambitious vocabulary. We will examine how to create effects by both looking at and analysing examples, and learning how to apply these techniques in our own writing.

This topic will examine specific area of English language in depth. We will begin by identifying adverbs and adverbial phrases, followed by pronouns and noun phrases. In both lessons, we will consider ways in which they can be used to improve writing. We will explore the different uses of apostrophes and practise using them correctly for contraction, omission and possession. Applying prefixes and suffixes will provide the opportunity to identify root words and will also assist in learning spelling rules and patterns. We will complete this topic by looking at synonyms and antonyms, using them to improve writing, and also show how they can be used to change the mood of a piece of writing.
