Within English 219, we have already learned a vital set of writing skills, that will allow for the improvement of essays, and summaries that must be written for future assessments. Some of these skills that would be relevant for achieving general writing improvement could be ideas such as thesis development, structuring and planning, or more specific examples when actually fleshing out the essay such as elements of grammar and style.

Taking a step back we looked in class at the subject

University Writing Center (UWC) and Academic Success Center (ASC) are two of the university facilities that help students enrich their academic experience. While UWC assists students in improving their written and oral communication skills through one to one consulting sessions, online resources, and workshops, ASC works to enhance students’ intellectual performance through academic coaching, supplemental instruction, drop-in tutoring sessions, and peer mentoring. Both of the organizations take a collaborative learning approach to encourage students to develop necessary study skills for academic success and increase student retention. ASC offers various student development programs; however, our focus for this proposal will be on drop-in tutoring services offered by ASC.

I thoroughly enjoy writing so I feel confident in my writing ability. One of my high school teachers had told me that I am a gifted writer and my writing has a lot of voice in it. The only things I have found that I struggle with when it comes to writing is grammar and transitions between paragraphs. My reading ability is just as strong as my writing ability, although I do not enjoy reading nearly as much as I enjoy writing.
To improve my writing based on the online tools feedback and analysis I will engage in more reading and writing. The first point of reference is to utilise text book such as the Communication Skills Toolkit: Unlocking the Secrets of Tertiary Success by Grellier and Goerke (2010). In addition The Little Red Writing Book: Better Sentences (n.d.) offers another medium for writing effective sentences. The benefits of The Little Red Writing Book entail sentence structure, punctuation, and grammar and syntax where at the end of each section, there are activities for practice. Furthermore, text books and tutor’s notation for required discipline will enhance my learning in reading and writing.
I always thought that my writing skills were pretty good until I started this class. It has been thirteen years since I graduated high school and I quickly realized that I had a lot of “refreshing” to do as far as writing papers. I actually felt very discouraged when I took the grammar test and did not score very well. I knew that I had to dedicate myself and put a lot of effort into this class to really improve. The practice quizzes were a major help to refresh on everything I must have forgotten since high school. Being able to write a quality paper is a skill that everyone should master. Writing is such a major part of communication in this day and age so being able to write an intelligent paper will benefit you not just through school but also through life. Writing skills are a reflection of intelligence and I want to perfect my writing the best that I can. Being able to write a quality paper is a skill that everyone should master.

This fall semester in ESL 91has been pretty interesting, and so far successful. The main object of this semester was to improve our essay writing. We were taught various lab techniques that helped us to improve our English writing skills, such as using appropriate verb tense and how to write a research paper with a works cited. Through my work on the research paper I have learned how to write in an academic style, how to find appropriate sources from an academic database, and how to cite my sources. Most of all, I can say that my reading skills have improved because the research for our papers required me to do a lot of critical reading.
When I came to college I never knew how difficult it would be to exercise on a regular basis. I was a high school athlete who had always found physical activity important and figured that would continue during my college career, but I was mistaken. I quickly became overwhelmed, and my time at the gym was quickly cut out of the schedule. I gained weight like most college students and looking back now I realized I had irregular eating habits, extreme levels of stress, and lack of sleep which is typical in most college students. When thinking of a personal self-care activity I found that exercise helped improve all of these problems in some way. When I realized exercise was the personal self-care
In teaching and learning English, there are two aspects that should be concerned. The first one is the language skills such as speaking, listening, reading, and writing.
