What is the most important thing to remember when writing?

Answer:

It's important to write about what you know. When you are able to write about what you know then you can effortlessly bring that piece of writing to life, which might be more challenging to do on a piece of writing that you lack interest in. There is more creativity that goes into it because it's a subject that you have a passion for. When you love the content or the storyline, then you can put your heart and soul into developing the characters and the plot. That's what draws the reader or your audience into your work.

Subject: Basic Math

Question:

I don't think math is at all important in life. Why do I need to learn this when I am never going to use it in the real world?

Answer:

That is a common question asked by most students. They don't see how much math is a part of our everyday life. However, math is very important. It applies to everything that we do in the real world. When we play hopscotch on the playground we use numbers to count the squares we jump on. When we go to the grocery store to buy candy we have to know the cost of the item and how much change we are getting back from the cashier. No one wants to pay more than they have to, do they? When a submarine is exploring the underwater world, the captain needs to think about the depth and how far he can go safely underwater. It also uses a grid and coordinate system to locate things and places underwater. More importantly, math also teaches us how to problem solve and think logically and critically, which is important in our everyday lives.

Subject: English as a Second Language

Question:

What skills do you think are important when choosing an E.S.L. tutor?

Answer:

I think it's important for a tutor to be friendly and relatable. It's also important for that tutor to have good English speaking and grammar skills because that is an area in which most English students struggle. More so, he or she must care about their student's learning and be willing to go above and beyond the job description to ensure their student's success in their English language skills.
