How to improve essay writing?

My ds yr8 told me he has done really badly at the English assessment in essay writing.

He was never a good writer, but improved over the years with practice, especially the creative writing.
He seems to struggle with summarizing which we will try to work on.

What kind of things he needs to do to improve essay writing skills? Any tips for helping him at home?
I am not a native English speaker, so I won't be much of help correcting his work, but I would at least like to guide him to right resources or techniques to improve his skills.

Sorry BurningEars, I hesitated to answer your question because it could be outing if the teacher at my dc's school was a MNetter.

And @SadSecretSanta, thank you, for lovely support you gave me. You must be a great teacher.
