Throughout your school life, you will have to write and submit an essay in some form or another. Here are some simple tips on how to write your essay that can be applied to all forms of educational essays.
First of all, the planning and research stage is the most important stage if you want to keep your essay clear, well structured and concise. I find many students skip this step and proceed to the writing stage immediately. You may be able to write the essay with the knowledge from your head or the analysis done in your school or college, although this is not a very effective way of doing things. If you are looking to improve your essays and obtain higher marks, you should be quoting facts from reliable sources. This will create a much more professional impression on your marker, and help you to express your ideas in a much easier fashion. Once you have a good amount of research done, note down the key points and order them in a way that creates a good basis for you to expand on.
Once you have your research and planning done, your essay will be off to a good start, you will have a much higher chance of a successful essay structure with concise knowledge expressed throughout. Next, comes the writing stage, you will need to set the tone of the essay in the first few lines with a short overview of the topic your essay is based on. Try to think of the key points you have written down in your plan, and assemble a brief introduction. Now that you have set the tone and whet the reader’s appetite, you can start with your first point. Here you should always provide a point, explanation and evidence to support this, doing so allows the reader to understand all the points you are trying to express, giving you a higher chance of a satisfied reader.
I find that errors ruin the majority of good work. Grammatical, structural and typing errors can turn a great essay into a collection of words lacking any professionalism at all. You can solve this problem with online proofreading services, a professional proofreader will scan your work thoroughly for this type of error. This will give your work a huge advantage, creating a much more professional feel.
