Question:

How do I write an academic essay?

Inactive

Answer:

Before starting any project, you need an idea of what you will do. That goes for writing as well! You will need to decide what the main idea of your essay will be. What do you want to write about? You may need to do some research on the subject to understand it fully and gather supporting information. During pre-writing, creating an outline is very beneficial to organize your thoughts. Essays begin with an introduction of the main idea which includes your thesis statement. The body paragraphs expand on the main idea by explaining supporting points. Then, the concluding paragraph completes the essay by summarizing the essay’s points in relation to the main idea. During a tutoring session, I would be more than happy to help you form your thesis statement and assist with any part of the essay you may be having trouble with. Whether it’s APA/MLA formatting, grammar, punctuation, or even writer’s block, I’m here to help!

Answer:

Learning proper English takes practice. One beneficial method is to not only read frequently but read out loud. Verbalizing the sentences can allow you to comprehend the flow of the structure. Schedule a tutoring session with me and I will be happy to listen and read along with you while assisting with pronunciation.

Question:

How do I know when to use 'affect' instead of 'effect' in a sentence?

Answer:

Try to remember that 'affect' is a verb (action) and 'effect' is a noun (object). 'Affect' means to act upon or to impact. When writing ‘affect’, if you can use another verb in place of ‘affect’, then you know that you have used the correct word. For example, ‘The heavy rain affected the roadways.’ This the verb ‘affected’ can be replaced seamlessly with another verb here. ‘The heavy rain flooded the roadways.’ 'Effect' is the result of the change or consequence. For example, ‘The effect of the heavy rain was devastating.’ ‘The heavy rain had a big effect on the roadways.’ When you request me as a tutor, I can assist you by working through the confusion.
