but also prevents staleness from seeping into the language (and hence vitality) of essays. Avoid repetition of words (and ideas) and when referring to the title of the text being discussed try to rephrase without using the name of the text every time. c. Do not answer the question or state your exact position in the opening paragraph. It is best to simply address the question or statement/thesis/argument in one’s own language and give a brief idea of your intended direction. d. Never begin an essay or question without having the exact content of your answer prepared or outlined, even to the substance of each paragraph. This allows one to write grammatically correct prose and gives one a better chance to express oneself uncluttered rather than having to recall and formulate ideas as one writes. The quality of the writing is at least as important as the information you communicate. e. Keep personal opinions out (unless specifically asked) or at least keep the language of opinionising out: i.e. I think, I doubt, I presume, I assume, in my opinion, etc.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
