Descriptive Writing

2 Hours of Lessons and Support Material

Studying English Language at GCSE or A Level? This course if for you. Chances are you’ll need to learn Descriptive Writing as part of your Creative Writing modules - especially for CIE, AQA or Edexcel.


Love writing stories, but not sure how to make your plot feel more real? This course is for you.


Descriptive writing (sometimes called a ‘descriptive essay’) is a type of creative writing that transports the reader to a specific time, place or situation. On this course you’ll learn the basics of writing fantastic creative passages that get the most out of your imagination.

These lessons include practising some of the key techniques needed for great description (such as narrative perspective and imagery), and example answers created by real students, to help you see how to put everything you’ve learned into practise.

I am the founder of Scrbbly. I love reading and writing of all kinds, and I aim to pass this enthusiasm on to my students.

I have taught English online since 2011, and have worked as a full time private tutor and teacher for over 4 years. For the last 2 years I have taught as Head of English for an online home school, which provides live lessons for Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) students from all over the world. I am also an approved AQA examiner, qualified to mark papers in GCSE and A Level Language and Literature.

I have a great track record of boosting students’ grades very quickly, simply because I help students to become self-critical; to understand what’s good and bad about their work. Find out more about me and my background here.
