Tutor profile: Alberto S.
How can you improve your grammar in order to improve your writing?
The key is to learn the basic parts of speech and how to apply them. The rules are really quite simple. In time, you'll be able to detect and avoid common grammatical mistakes by instinct.
What is the best way to analyze a complex, lengthy work of literature?
You don't have to be Shakespeare to do this! The key to a good analysis is to know how to identify the recurring literary techniques, devices, and motifs. Once you can spot these literary patterns and understand their purpose in the work, you'll be good to go.
Why is it important to develop solid writing skills, even if you aren't planning for a language-related career?
Absolutely every discipline or profession will require you to display strong communication skills. You must therefore be able to cogently explain the reasoning behind your viewpoints and decisions. This is where writing skills come in! Crafting argumentative essays and research papers teaches us how to organize our ideas, present them clearly, and convince our audience of their validity. As a writing tutor, this will be one of my main goals as we work together.
