If they can learn the basics, a sense of style may emerge, but this is more difficult to teach as it is often intuitive. My goal is to turn students' weaknesses into strengths and to enable students to get the grade they want in exam [more]

Experienced English and German Tutor (native speaker)

In order to write well, it is important that you have something to say. Maybe you have to write a book report or an essay on specific subject. If you are younger your topic might be: ?What I did Last Summer?. When you are older you might want to write about topics, such as ?Should Drugs be Legalized?? or ?The Electric Grid?.

When you use a computer, the Word program includes the MLA (Modern Language Association) style, which will [more]
