Question:

When do I use a comma?

Inactive
Allen T.
Answer:

A comma has a few different uses depending on word style: -in a list of items of 3 or more -before "and" in lists -before "and" to combine two independent clauses to name a few. The proper placement of a comma can impact the flow and direction of your writing. For example: "The tutor is nice, and thoughtful," is an incorrect usage of a comma because it separates the qualities describing the subject [the tutor]. It should be written as "the tutor is nice and thoughtful." The latter version reads smoother as the qualities are on par with each other, rather than the, "and thoughtful," coming across as either an afterthought or a separate feeling as a result of the first quality.

Question:

When faced with a child who asks for assistance with the same type of problem, repeatedly, how do you assist them to overcome this?

Answer:

When working with younger students, frequently saying numbers or utilizing fingers is not good enough to help them process concepts of addition or subtraction. Utilizing a combination of visual aids and word problems has shown success when engaging students who demonstrate mental blocks as they try to process equations they demonstrate maybe inconsistent ability to be successful. Supporting them, without harassing or answering all the questions is key to ensure that they pick it up, which requires patience and time.

Question:

When a university says it is utilizing a "holistic approach" to evaluating applications, what does that mean?

Answer:

It means that it is considering all elements of your application with a degree of severity. While elements of the application reign supreme (GPA, rigor, etc.), all elements are considered in the evaluation.
