Introduction

Describe a typical day in the life of a teacher in Singapore. Clad in an impeccable white blouse and tight black pencil skirt, Mrs. Tay walked briskly towards the classroom where her first lesson was to be held. The sweltering and scorching weather was making her feel less than comfortable. She could feel beads of sweat trickling down her forehead. Lifting up her hand, she hurriedly swiped the perspiration off her forehead before it got into her eyes.

As usual, she had an appetizing dinner cooked up by her husband before she started on marking her students' work. After marking her students' work, her husband gave her an accustomary massage for her aching shoulders and legs after a tiring day's work.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

****
A clearly and simply written essay which is very detailed. There is some repetition of phrases and some mistakes with prepositions but generally this is an accurate and well planned piece of writing.
There could be more figurative language used but the reader has a clear idea of Mrs Tav from the detail and the dialogue.
