Throughout a student’s academic life, essays will be a constant assignment. Although it will differ in difficulty depending on the school level, the structure of an essay remains the same.

Here are some essay writing tips for you.

Develop a Clear Thesis Statement

Everything starts with a main idea. As you go along, this main idea essentially dictates the direction of your paper. Just be clear and precise when writing your thesis statement. Do not go overboard by putting all the things you want to say in one sentence. After all, having a clear thesis statement already helps you further develop your ideas.


Make an Outline First

Making an outline is one of the most useful techniques that a writer does. By successfully fixing the whole structure of the paper beforehand, you can have an easier and much more organized time writing your paper.


Have Someone Else Read Your Work

A spell check from whatever writing application you have is not enough especially after you’ve exhausted yourself from writing. A fresh pair of eyes can spot simple errors that you may not have seen due to fatigue. A third party can also be helpful when you want to receive feedback (coherence, grammars, sentence structures, etc.) on your paper.


Essays are also a part of some college entrance tests. AHEAD Tutorial and Review, the leading tutorial and review center in the Philippines, has teachers from the top universities that help students be fully prepared for these tests. For more information, contact or visit our Facebook page.
