BACK TO YOU
George Orwell’sWriting Tips
• "Probably it is better to put off using words as long as possible and get one's meanings as clear as one can through pictures or sensations." Meaning = plan before you write!
G. Orwell Continued...• Orwell's English Language Rules:
• "i. Never use a metaphor, simile or other figure of speech which you are used to seeing in print.
• ii. Never use a long word where a short one will do.
• iii. If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out...
• iv. Never use the passive when you can use the active.
• v. Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent."
(However, in an exam showing offisn't always a bad thing)
• One or two students are easier to maintain
• I’m affordable
• I’ve been through the process myself (invaluable)
• Well spoken, qualified, dedicated and resourceful...(channels of communication...
• I am approachable (there are no daft questions here)
• I probably have more time than your teacher (even if they do know best)
• My sole focus is YOU
• Complimenting your teacher’s guidance
