Your essay scripts will be the substance for online talks and debates with your tutor, who will identify defects in your use of English, explain their nature, and how to avoid them.
During each online private tutorial, your tutor might challenge your treatment of certain issues in your essay and invite you to defend your argumentation and attempt to find common ground. Such exchange is a powerful means to fine English and acute perception.
