Would like help from teacher to improve my skills in essay writing.

Hello,

As part of my studies, I have to write essays, on both British and American various works.

However, I am a complete beginner in essay writing, and I must admit that my skills are not so good.

In order to improve, I'd like to know if anyone would be kind enough to agree reading through my essays, and making comments and advices.

I am doing distance studies with an university in France, but I unfortunately don't get much chance to speak with the teachers, and I am afraid that, like last year, this will not enable me to be the most prepared for my exams.

Biritsh literature works are: Hamlet, Robinson Crusoe, and the Master of Ballantrae

I wait for your anwers. Thanks.

Regards,

David
