Essay Check 4 You

Use the tips on this site to check the way you write your college essays. Boost your course grades by working on essay preparation together with friends.

Your first step to essay writing success is to get some friends! This should be fairly easy and hopefully you will choose bright keen learners as friends!

The next step to move your essay writing grades from average C+/B- up to A/A+ is to form a study group with those friends and to start to generate powerful group witing synergy.

If you choose group members carefully you will all develop higher essay writing grades by working together and helping each other.

There's no hidden cost to this college essay writing method. Making group synergy depends entirely on your ability to work constructively with other people.

Essay Writing Synergy

Now I'd like to introduce my 12-Steps Essay Writing Method. Each of the 12 steps has a purpose and no step should be skipped over. You may think that step one is unnecessary but my experience as a tutor is that about 5% of college students get this wrong and consequently receive a low essay grade.

1 understand the essay purpose
2 attend the 1st study group meeting
3 do content research reading
4 make topic research notes
5 discuss the research notes
6 create the essay outline
7 write the 1st draft essay
8 add examples & illustrations
9 revise and improve
10 make essay-as-art check
11 check the essay citations
12 proof check & format pages

What's Next?

12-steps essays take about 5-6 days to complete so it's important to start working on each essay as early as you can. Your study group is where you will generate essay synergy in the form of high quality topic background research, a wider range of relevant citations, and a group-developed essay outline.

There are two group meetings for every essay assignment. At the 1st meeting you discuss the essay topic and agree how to spread the essay background research reading.

At the 2nd meeting you discuss your research notes and work together to prepare a draft essay outline. For more about the 12-Steps 'click' a topic from the sidebar menu.
