Overview

This writing program is designed to assist students of all levels in delivering well thought out, organized, creative or academic essays for school or supplemental courses. Teachers well versed in the writing process will help students by editing their essays for spelling, grammar, and word choice. Teachers will also communicate with students by providing ample feedback on constructing a strong thesis statement, finding ways to better structure and develop their paper, and suggesting how to find reputable sources to create a stronger essay.

ACHIEVING THE GOALS

The goal of the UStar writing program is to familiarize students with academic writing while also helping them develop their own voice. Together, with the help of our expert teachers, we will guide students towards becoming better writers, thinkers and speakers, all of which are necessary skills to be successful in the 21st century. 

HOW WE REVIEW STUDENTS' WRITING

Our teachers will edit your writing for word choicesentence structuretone, and clarity, and they will make suggestions on organization and structure. We’ll provide helpful comments to let you know where you can improve your arguments and strengthen your paper, and we’ll also fix typos and spelling and grammar errors.

The editing system is simple: all revisions (punctuation, grammar, sentence structure, etc.) will be done in a different color, and there will be a strikethrough over the original students’writing to indicate a change. 

What will you receive

  • An edited copy of your document in which the typos, spelling errors, and grammar errors have been corrected.
  • Tracked revisions so that you can see and review all the changes that have been made.
  • Comments that address any remaining areas of concern or potential issues.
  • Suggestions to help improve the writing and the content.
  • A short summary of the work that has been done and any major concerns.
