How should I structure an essay?
The basic format for an essay includes an introduction, 3 to 5 body paragraphs, and a conclusion. The introduction sets the tone for the rest of your essay. It should include a thesis statement that outlines your point of view. The intro should be brief, concise, and lead into the first body paragraph. Each body paragraph should include a topic sentence and transition words. Each body paragraph should build upon the other. The conclusion needs to tie up the essay and reaffirm the original thesis in an original and satisfying manner.

What are the differences between the simple present and the present perfect tenses?
Understanding the differences between the simple present and present perfect can be tricky for students. You must think of verb tenses in English as if they are on a continuum. The simple present tense describes situations that happen on a routine basis. Ex: Mary washes her car every Saturday. We drive to the park. Now, the present perfect describes situations that may have occurred in the past or recent past that are still relevant to the present. Ex: We have rescued several dogs from the shelter.
