way a tutor will be by your side, showing you clear and simple ways of overcoming the most difficult problems. And you choose the essay you want to work on, drawn from the courses you’re taking at your school, college or university.
You will be taken carefully through each stage of writing the essay from interpreting the question to the research, planning, writing and revision. In each of these you will be given practice exercises to work on, along with their answers, with an assignment at the end of each section. As you work through each stage you will get practical help right up until the essay has been completed. In this way not only will your work improve, but you’ll develop those skills necessary to tackle successfully all your future writing assignments
It’s an integrated approach
It doesn’t deal with writing skills in isolation from the thinking skills and the other study skills involved, like note-taking, reading and organisation. If you’ve taken study-skills courses before, you’ll know that dealing with any skill in isolation results in us just tacking on this new skill to our existing pattern of study. It’s not integrated within it. As a result, after a short time we come to realise it’s not relevant to the way we use our other skills and we quietly abandon it.
It’s a purposeful approach
Because it’s directed at a specific goal of producing a certain essay that you have chosen yourself, it has a clear purpose that’s relevant to what you’re studying. Unlike more general books and courses, you’re not working in a vacuum. In effect, you can hire a book report writer, who will be by your side to help you with the problems you confront at each stage in the production of an essay that you have to complete for one of your courses.
The book takes account of the syllabus objectives of your courses
Unlike most books on this subject, this one will help you develop the skills you need to meet the syllabus objectives of the courses you’re taking at school, college or university. You will develop the skills and techniques that allow you to explore more effectively in your writing those abilities your syllabuses set out to develop. As x Introduction many of us know from our experience with other books and courses, any book that doesn’t do this we are likely to abandon, realising it doesn’t address our needs, because it’s divorced from the abilities we are expected to use and develop in the courses we are studying.
After you’ve read the book and completed the course you’re left with an invaluable guide that you can use to diagnose and deal with any problem you might have in your writing in the future. As it’s broken up into stages it’s easy to identify where the problem is and what you need to do to tackle it. To help you in this, the index can be used to diagnose a problem you might be experiencing, so that you can easily locate the relevant section of the guide.
