Course Description

This course is the most popular English exam course for Home Educators. Julia is an experienced teacher and has worked with many Home Educated students. She understands her students are all individuals and will endeavour to help them to get the best out of the course and aim for a successful outcome. She is used to students with anxiety and will gently encourage them and help to build their self-confidence. We are happy to accommodate children’s preferences around webcams and microphone being on or off or similar needs. Exam practice and preparation are included. Lessons are not recorded due to Copyright laws.

There will be two final exams with no coursework requirement.

A Textbook is NOT required as Julia provides all materials.

Homework will be set after the lesson and will be posted on Zoom private chat. Completed homework must be submitted also via Zoom private chat before the following lesson in plenty of time to allow for marking. Late homework will not be marked.

Qualification aims and objectives (from Exam board website)

  • The aims and objectives of this qualification are to enable students to:
  • read a wide range of texts fluently and with good understanding
  • read critically and use knowledge gained from wide reading to inform and improve their own writing
  • write effectively and coherently using Standard English appropriately
  • use grammar correctly, punctuate and spell accurately
  • acquire and apply a wide vocabulary alongside knowledge and understanding of grammatical terminology, and linguistic conventions for reading, writing

Exams

Please check the booking cut-off date with your chosen exam centre.

Please note that if your child requires any special access requirements for their exams I advise you to contact the exam centre a year before to check what the process is to meet your exam centre and the exam board requirements. It can take many months to make these arrangements. Julia will not provide predicted grades or marked teacher’s assessments as this is a final exam IGCSE course without coursework.
