  • Public Speaking Details

    Online courses: Public Speaking

    The Public Speaking course is led by George, an English and Drama tutor and professional actor with fourteen years’ experience. The course aims to help students who are faced with speaking public feel excited not nervous, confident not fearful, and focused not lost. Key modules will include: understanding what your audience want and how you can serve them; analysing posture, eye contact and physical confidence; and mastering vocal delivery.

    This course will run at 5:30pm (UK) on Fridays. The first session will be 26th April 2024 and the last 28th June.
  • Critical Thinking Details

    Online courses: Critical Thinking

    The Critical Thinking workshop is led by Christian, who has been an IB teacher for 20 years. He currently works for an IB school where he is head of Global Politics and Theory of Knowledge (TOK). He is the author of several textbooks for Pearson Publishing. The course will encourage students to reflect on the central question, ‘How do we know that?’. It will inculcate habits of healthy scepticism and scrutiny of claimed knowledge, and will urge students to reflect on and examine the way their own beliefs and perspectives may impact on what they think they know.

    The course will run on Saturday mornings at 10am (UK). The first session will run on 27th April 2024 with the last session on 29th June.
  • Creative Writing Details

    Online courses: Creative Writing

    Rebecca Stonehill is a published fiction author of four books, based in the UK. She has been teaching creative writing to young people for over ten years, empowering them to get excited about the written word and produce work they can be proud of.

    This course is aimed at children aged between 9 and 12. The inspiration and creative writing activities for these courses will be taken from an exciting book, Inkheart by Cornelia Funke.

    I have chosen this book because it is rich in plot, setting, characterisation and opportunities for writing activities.

    I will divide the book into ten weeks, giving the students a task of reading a certain amount between classes. (NB: If they are unable to read the set chapters it is OK, but it goes without saying they will get more out of the class and it will be more fulfilling if they read the full amount.)

    Please note that very limited reading will take place in the class itself – during our hour together we will focus on fun writing activities. These will be based around (but not limited to) the following: character, setting, plot, conflict, multiple perspectives, imagining oneself in the story, poetic interpretation.

    Skills students will be working on:

    • Creativity
    • Composition and structuring of short stories and poems
    • Increasing vocabulary
    • Literary devices to help bring writing alive eg simile, metaphor
    • Confidence with the written word

    The classes will all take place on Zoom.

    What students will need to bring to the class: the book, enthusiasm and imagination!

    The course will run on Tuesdays at 5pm. It will start on 23rd April 2024 and last until 2nd July, with no lesson in the week of 28th May, and costs £620.
