Question:

How can I improve my writing skills?

John O.
Answer:

To improve your writing skills, there are several aspects you need to look at; Grammar, Punctuation, Spelling, Format, and Conciseness. Grammar, punctuation, and spelling are all easily fixed through several rereads and edits of a finished assignment or paper (reading out loud can help, pausing at each comma or period to see if it feels natural, or having someone else read it to see if it flows well). Formatting depends on the class standard and making sure you understand what your teacher wants is a great way to keep it on track. Conciseness is about removing opinions (in non-opinion pieces) and making sure each sentence introduces a new point or pushes forward a previous point to prevent the writing from getting away from you.

Question:

What is the most important aspect of studying?

John O.
Answer:

The most important aspect of studying is consistency. By creating and maintaining a consistent study schedule (routine), study environment, and study materials, a student is, by leaps and bounds, ahead of peers that are not doing the same. Having an environment where you feel comfortable, but is clear of distractions, aids in getting and staying focused. Additionally, keeping your study space well-stocked (paper, pencils, and highlighters, for example) helps prevent any reason to leave the study space.

Question:

What makes a good essay?

John O.
Answer:

There are many parts of a good essay. The essay must be clear and concise. Every sentence should either introduce a new point or back-up one already made. A good essay must also be organized, meaning it's important to have an outline of your essay before you begin writing. An outline is important because it helps you stay on topic and guides you as you write.
