Alan - Filippo- English - IB
21st April 2023
I recently had the pleasure of working with Alan, who has truly helped me improve my skills in the subject. From practicing Paper 1 to going through different bodies of work for Paper 2, Alan has a deep understanding of the IB and how to precisely address the subject and has provided me with valuable insight on how to approach texts and analysis. During our sessions, we focused on stylistic devices, all kinds of texts, and how to approach the analysis of the text for Paper 1. For Paper 2, Alan's knowledge of different bodies of work was impressive, and he found various ways to approach the meaning of the texts we studied. Furthermore, he was a great help with my Higher Level essay, providing additional corrections and tips that have undoubtedly helped me achieve a higher grade. His feedback was constructive and well-informed, and I felt more confident in my writing skills as a result. Not only is Alan extremely professional, but his lessons never get boring as he is very fun and engaging. The lessons were always interesting, and I found myself looking forward to them each time. I would highly recommend Alan to anyone looking to improve their grades and understanding of the subject.
