Experienced Business English and IELTS Teacher

While engaging in business, I've written many policies, procedures, presentations, letters, emails, etc. In school, I wrote many an essay. My Film and Society professor asked to use an essay I wrote about the movie, Armageddon" as an example for future classes. I received very good grades in English Literature and was even asked to be a tutor in the Writing Department at the college. What's more, I wrote a short story that was published. I've enjoyed creating word pictures for a very long time, and I enjoy helping others with whatever their writing needs might be. [more]

180 LSAT Scorer! (Plus physics, calculus, writing, and more)

Writing is something I do both professionally and for personal enrichment.

So a lot of your emotion should flow into that thought and make the reader feel it. Good writing does not involve using very high sounding words and complicate by writing endless compound sentences. Simple words of expression elicit better response from the reader. Breaking up long winding sentences into 2 or 3 smaller ones sends the message across more effectively.
