Tips on how to write a good essay

The following are some tips for you to learn when you are going to write a guaranteed A+ essay.

1. Write for a purpose.
The most important thing to remember is to bear your purpose in mind, no matter whether you are writing to convince your reader of your idea(s), or writing to inform your reader about something. Therefore with a purpose in your mind,you would certainly have a reason to write good.

2. Have an Audience. You should be clearly aware of who your potential readers are and how they feel about a particular subject..

3. Know your Tone. At the beginning, you had better decide up how you feel about the subject you are writing about and how you intend to “speak” to your audience about it. For example, your tone might be angry, convincing, sympathetic, urgent or arguing.

4. Have a strong Thesis Statement. A strong thesis statement means a lot, because without a main point or argument your essay would be worthy nothing.
When writing a strong thesis statement there are 4 things you should follow:

(1)  . Don’t write a highly opinionated statement

(2)  . Don’t make an announcement.

(3)  . Don’t make a factual statement.

(4)  . Don’t make a broad statement.

A thesis statement is all about presenting your position on a subject.

5. Use lively words, statements and strong verbs. For instance, when you write a sentence like this: “The crowd seemed pleased when the team scored a point.” It is much better to change it like  this: “The crowd cheered and whistled as the basketball team scored a point”. From this alteration , you could see how just the change of a few words made the sentence much more interesting.

6. There is a rule that is very important to follow when writing an essay : “Tell them what your going to tell them, Tell them, and then tell them what you told them.”
This means clearly that in your essay, you should have an introduction, a body, and a conclusion that re-states what you’ve already told them.

7.Revision, revision, revision! Always remember to revise. This means to read, and re-read your rough draft and keep making it better and better, by adding more content, making things a little bit clearer if they didn’t really seem to make sense, just cleaning up the rough edges of your paper.

8. Last point is to do some research. You need a creditable source to support your points about something, so find people that have already done the work for you, read what they have to say, this will give you more ideas and defiantly more credibility making your reader(s) pay more attention to you and your point.
