Do any of these scenarios apply to you?
You’ve assigned an essay but have no idea how to start approaching the question.
Got all the information for your essay but not sure how to plan your essay.
Stuck with how to research and find good sources online.
You’re ok with the essay writing but your grade is stuck at a C/B and don’t know why you can’t push it up, even though you’re trying.
You don’t know who to ask for help.
If any of these apply to you, you are in the right place. Over my years of teaching I have come across a common problem: students are not taught the skills or process to write an analytical essay. What’s worse, most schools do not teach effective essay writing, they do not teach you how to think critically (nor do they encourage it), and they don’t teach students the process of writing in a structured and understandable way. It’s a problem.
After the success of the Modak Tutoring Covid-19 Online School, I decided to create an on-demand version that you can follow along from anywhere and anytime.
This crash course will give you the foundations and structure to write an analytical essay that puts your argument across in a succinct and coherent manner (all things your teacher is looking for, even if they didn’t explain it that way). This method will challenge you to read and think critically so that you can approach any assignment, no matter how complicated, with confidence and assurance that you know the process to find the answer.
In this course you will learn how to write an essay from start to finish including:
Understanding the essay question,
Editing your essay.
I show you what to look for in each step of the process and how you can take your writing to the next level. The easy to follow video lessons will take you through the ‘theory’ and then show you how to put it into practice with your own essay.
This method has been tried and tested for more than 10 years in my own academic work and taught to my students. Every one of my students who has put in the work have jumped up by at least 2 grades in 6 months using the method laid out in this course. You will be challenged, but the benefit of learning to think have long lasting rewards.
This course is not a quick fix for students who are looking for someone to tell them the answer and don’t want to put the work in.
However, if you are ready and willing to put in the work this course will give you the tools you need to improve your critical thinking, improve your writing so that you can write more analytical and valuable essays. The result of this will be a better quality of your writing and subsequently your grade should improve too.

I have been a private tutor since graduating from university in 2014. My academic career began at an international secondary school, I took the International Baccalaureate with Higher Level English, History and Visual Arts and my extended essay discussed whether the church is a building or it’s people. After a gap year, during which I worked for a charity and travelled in India and Europe, I attended the University of Manchester. Upon completion I was awarded a 2:1 in the Study of Religions & Theology.
Tutoring is a personal passion. I enjoy teaching; diving into academic study and showing students how rich it can be. We tackle challenging material unravelling its intricacies then analysing its ideas. The techniques I teach my students are tried and tested methods I’ve used for the last 10 years.
Through my lessons all students make improvements. One student in particular made massive improvements. She was studying for a her GCSEs and struggling. Her History and Religion marks were stuck at 56%. After 6 months of lessons she jumped to a massive 85% in her GCSE mocks! Needless to say, she, her parents and I were very happy!
