Tutor profile: Lauren B.
Which is a more effective writing technique: "page dumping" or a strategic plan that manifests in an outline?
There is no "write" answer here (see what I did there?). It all depends on your personal writing process and the types of essays/papers you are attempting to write! I am excited to help you explore and learn your writing style.
Subject: Study Skills
Is it more effective to re-read the textbook or create flashcards?
Well, it depends! The most important studying technique is one that helps you to engage with the material. I will help you explore many study techniques that will help your brain engage and learn the material you need to ace the test!
What drives the English language: what is in the dictionary or what people use colloquially?
Not so surprisingly, what people use colloquially! In 2018, Miriam Webster added over 1,100 words to the dictionary! Words included: "mansplain," "hangry," and "doh! ("Slob kabob" is coming next - you heard it here first.) This shows the incredible durability and flexibility of the English language that we all get to learn and experience every day!
