Essay writing is an important skill for English...

Writing essays can definitely be a challenge but essay-writing is a very important skill to master for your high school and tertiary studies. While essays can take many forms (depending on the subject, content and audience), we are here to offer a solid framework that will help you get one step closer to writing that perfect essay.

Structure

Your essay must follow a clear and logical structure that supports your argument. Even if your evidence might be lacking, structure will get you a long way in ensuring your argument is easy to follow. Some subjects and topics will require slightly different structures. We recommend that you discuss those nuances with one of our private tutors here at KIS. In the mean time, the following structure should provide a solid start:

  1. Introduction
    Your introduction is the first thing that your audience reads so you really want to be making a good first impression on your reader. Use the introduction as an opportunity to bring your initial thoughts together in a succinct way and then provide a roadmap of where you are headed with the rest of your essay.
  2. Body
    The body of your essay consists of paragraphs, each a building block in the construction of your argument. You want to use the body of your essay to answer the question through added detail and sophisticated reasoning of related evidence. Take it as an opportunity to show your knowledge of the prescribed materials (as well as wider reading if relevant).

    The content and amount of body paragraphs is in your hands but generally 3-4 paragraphs (each dedicated to a new idea/ point) will allow you to develop your argument with sufficient detail.
  3. Conclusion
    Your conclusion should not just be a repeat of the introduction. While your introduction moves from broad to specific, your conclusion should move from specific to more broad. Never introduce new content or ideas for the conclusion although, you might want to make your essay more thought-provoking by offering some food for thought for the reader (of course, related to what you have already said).

Mastering english and essay-writing can be quite complex, and understanding what's going on can be very daunting for new students and parents. If you ever need some assistance with english and essay-writing, KIS Academics tutors have a thorough understanding of the subjects and can assist in understanding curriculum requirements too. Our tutors are able to provide materials and teaching on how to prepare for english assessments.

As a year 11 student doing ATAR, I was looking for a tutor that could help me with French. KIS Academics was incredibly helpful and fast at finding me someone who could assist me with my studies. My tutor Eliza Carey over the past few months has helped me so much not only in French but in biology and maths as well. I’m incredibly grateful for the effort and commitment she has put into helping me be more comfortable and less stressed about the subjects I was having difficulty with. It’s been nothing but an honour to be tutored by Eliza and I strongly recommend her as a tutor

Hey Team!
My name is Emma and I am keen to get to know you and your study needs!

Throughout high school I was your typical perfectionist, I was never satisfied with doing just ok. I worked my butt off to get to where I am and found myself looking back at high school thinking “why didn’t they tell me [insert profound knowledge here] sooner!”

That’s where I want to help you! I want to make sure you don’t have to do the hard yards of searching for those magical ‘ah ha’ moments alone. Hopefully, I will be able to pass on the things I so painstakingly learnt whilst making sure you get your content down.

My lessons are catered to what you need and I am always here if you need to ask questions, get stuck on something or just want to rant about school! I was in your shoes not too long ago, so I get it and am here to help.

I am also the State Consultant for NSW here at KIS as well as a sales professional and the Events Manager for KIS. I keep myself super busy but I love being so involved with KIS because I truly believe in our mission to help students

Hey guys! I’m Elena and I’m here to say: I get it. VCE can be difficult. So no matter whether you’re aiming for the top or just trying to survive this crazy thing we call school, my ultimate mission is to help make things easier for you. I can be your certified secret weapon!
I graduated as the Dux of my high school with an ATAR of 99.60. I also received a VCE Premier's Award for Excellence in English. I completed six subjects total, two of them in Year 11 as accelerated subjects- so I can help out with the extra questions, skills and uncertainty that comes with doing VCE early.

I have years of teaching experience at a Saturday school and I am myself the product of good tutoring- so I can combine personal experience as both the student and the teacher to create a balanced, tailored, welcoming and relatable tutoring process for you.

Aside from the content itself, as a VCE survivor I am able to help out with general tips and tricks- all the things that will ultimately help you help yourself!

I left high school happy with my six years there - a feeling which I hope to impart to you. Whether that means improved grades, better studying skills or a greater enjoyment of a subject, I will be there to help that happen and have some laughs along the way!

Hi! I'm Huey and I graduated as the 2020 dux of St Kevin's College with a 99.90 ATAR and perfect 50s in English and Chemistry. I'm pleased to be offering tutoring for English and Maths. Currently, I'm studying Medicine at Monash University.

Why you can trust me:

  • 400+ hrs experience
  • Accepted into 3 medical schools across Australia
  • Currently tutoring students from some of Melbourne's top-performing high schools (MHS, Scotch College, Xavier College, Caulfield Grammar, PLC, etc.)

As a tutor, I provide:

  • Detailed notes
  • Exam-style questions
  • Practice SACs/exams (a lot)
  • 24/7 assistance
  • Med entry guidance (UCAT/MMI)

The two things I emphasise most are understanding the content and conveying your understanding through well-structured answers. I really enjoy tutoring you guys and I hope it shows in my teaching. Looking forward to working with you :))

Should I get an English tutor?

The answer to this question is not as black and white as you may hope for it to be. Getting an English tutor would be dependent on how well your school teacher guides you in English and also on whether you feel like you need some additional assistance with English. This could be either due to your teacher’s guidance not being enough or due to you wanting to push your English skills further. Getting an English tutor is not the only way to succeed in VCE English, but tutoring can help you reach your true potential in your writing, creativity and ideas. For those who are not in VCE at the moment, an English tutor does have the ability to allow you to improve your writing style and analysis of texts in preparation for VCE.

What makes a good English tutor?

You would want to look for a tutor who has experience with the texts you are analysing in English. A tutor who knows the texts well will be able to assist you in developing your understanding. You should also seek someone who can clearly and effectively communicate to you, in a way that is easy for you to understand. These criteria can mean different things for different students, so finding a tutor who suits your style of learning and engagement is important. A good English tutor would also have a personalised approach to tutoring English. The tutor would cultivate your writing style and allow you to create the best work that you can create.

What skills can an English tutor teach me?

The skills you learn from an English tutor vary depending on your stage in your study of the English language. This may be improving your sentence structure to make your writing more cohesive. It may be assisting with word choice to make sure that you can convey your ideas more succinctly. It may be helping you look at the text from a different perspective and cultivate new ideas. These are all skills that an English tutor can help you with, which your school teacher may not have the time to individually assist you with.
