Trick 1: Have A Solid Structure
By properly structuring your work you will increase your chances of not getting overwhelmed or confused in the process of writing. There should be 3 sections which are as follows:
- Introduction: here you should state what you will talk about, and why it is important.
You can also hint at what the outcome of the discussion will be, or you can leave that to the conclusion. The introduction should be short, but interesting enough to grab the reader’s attention so that they will be interested in reading the entire piece.
- Body: the body of the piece is where you will present the ideas and arguments that will try to answer the title of the essay. The structure should follow a flow where one paragraph is related to a new idea. Make sure that you only include the facts, figures, quotations and arguments that are relevant to the title. Taking a course of quantity over quality can be counter-productive.
- Conclusion: just like the introduction, this section should be short and to the point. It must include all the points made throughout the piece, and you’ll need to tie them up. In the end you should take a stance on the answer that is clearly defined, and try to leave the reader with a thought at the end that indicates why it was worth reading the essay.
Trick 2: Proofreading Help
Proofreading can be difficult if you don’t even know that the mistakes you are making are actually mistakes. For example, if there is a grammar mistakes that you tend to always make, then you might not spot it in this piece also.
You could try downloading a grammar checker that will check your content for any grammar issues. Try running several grammar checkers in turn, because if one doesn’t catch a mistake ,then another one will.
However, grammar checkers cannot spot mistakes related to logic, and for that you might need to hire a service or freelancer. You could visit a bidding site that has a variety of freelancers willing to read over your project in order to make corrections for a fee. Make sure to pay them well, because otherwise they might rush the process of checking your mistakes. Fortunately, unlike with hiring a writing job, proofreading jobs tend to be much cheaper.
Trick 3: Visit Your Teacher Several Times
When a teacher notices that you are proactive abut wiring your essay, then they will be more inclined to help you. For example, if you visit them several times, and each time have a new draft written, then it shows you are proactive.
You can ask a number of questions that they might not answer in class, because it would be considered giving the game away. But after hours, when nobody else is around a teacher might tell you a few things that other students won’t know. This will give you an advantage when it comes to completing your work.
