Question:

I need help with my college essay and secondaries. How do I write a good essay?

Alona N.

Writing a great college essay can be a stressful and difficult process. The first step is choosing the correct essay prompt for you. To help with this, I suggest choosing three essay prompts and writing a short draft or brainstorm of what you would discuss during each essay. After brainstorming, I will help you decide which essay prompt will best show your personality to your desired college. The key to writing any great college essay is choosing the correct prompt to show colleges who you are and why you would be an amazing addition to their school. If we chat one on one, I will provide you with even more tips about writing a great college essay.

Question:

Explain how to solve the following equation: 4.7 + .9 + .01 = ?

Alona N.

When solving for decimals, you must make sure that you are familiar with whole numbers (ones, tens, hundreds) and fractional numbers (tenths, hundredths, thousandths) after the decimal point. if adding or subtracting decimals, you should always line the decimals up according to their whole numbers and fractional numbers. For example, in this equation, 4.7 has a whole number followed by the decimal point and then a fractional number in the tenths. 0.9 does not have a whole number; instead it has a practical number that is also in the tenths. 0.01 also does not have a whole number, and it's practical number is in the hundredths. After lining the decimals up in the following way: 4.7 0.9 0.01 You will get the following answer: 5.61.

Question:

Should I use their, there, or they're?

Alona N.

Figuring out when to use the correct there used to be very difficult for me. However, I have a solution whenever I'm writing an essay or sending a text that can help you. You only use "their" when you are referring to something people (or maybe animals) have or own. A good tip to remember is that when using "their", it is also always followed be a noun. For example, the sentence "Their father is tall" refers to a person "having tallness" and the noun is the father. When using "there", you must always remember that it is an adverb or pronoun that refers to a place (either concrete or abstract). For example, the sentences "The ball is over there" and "There is something wrong", show concrete and abstract places, respectively. The last "they're" is a contraction meaning it can be broken into two words: they are. You use this contraction when describing something or showing an action. For instance, the sentences "They're tall" and "They're studying" shows the contraction "they are" followed by an adjective and a verb, respectively.
