3 Tips to Write an A-Paper
Hello, everyone! Jessyka Coulter here, and today I want to teach you how to write an A paper.
So, if you have ever struggled with writing a paper, this is really relevant to you, and you've been dying to know the secrets of how to write an A paper, let me know by clicking that thumbs up or like button or maybe give me some love with the heart button. I’m so glad you're here, and I'm excited to tutor you in writing an A paper.
Before we get into the good stuff…. I know you really wanna know the secrets…. But in case we've never found a chance to meet in person, I want to give you a little background information about me. I'm Jessyka Coulter, and I am the CEO and Founder of Ace Cookie Tutoring. I specialize in tutoring students on the ACT; I help them increase their scores, especially in the Reading and English sections. I also love helping college students proofread their papers.
Alright, the first secret to writing a paper: it's all about the topic which might sound easy, but it’s more complicated than choosing a good topic and getting an A. If your teacher tells you what to write about, that takes away your decision-making - maybe that's something that stresses you out so it’s a good thing - but maybe you get to choose a topic. Well, I've got to encourage you to choose A) a topic you already know something about or B) a topic you want to know more about. Your paper is going to go so much better and be so much easier to write if it's a topic you're actually invested in.
I hope this is making sense for you! If you're getting something out of this, great! Do you know that I have a free outline I'd love to offer you? All you need to do to get it is to send me an email to email@example.com or via my website (www.acecookietutoring.com/contact-us). As soon as I receive your email or message, I’ll be glad to send the outline your way.
So, let's move on to the second tip which is actually about outlines. You might be wondering, “Why should I use an outline?” Well, the thing is, if you do all of this great research and find out all of this good info to use on your paper, you've got to have a way to organize it. If you turn in a paper that doesn't make a lot of sense because it's not well-structured, your teacher is not going to be very happy. Consequently, you're not gonna get a very good grade on your paper. Use an outline to figure out exactly what goes where and what to say when.
Again, I hope you're enjoying this and it's helping. If it is, click that thumbs up button or maybe even leave me a positive comment. I would love to know your thoughts.
Okay, I've got more secrets about writing an A paper. I hope you're ready! The last secret is all about citations, and I know it might sound like a broken record, but plagiarism, seriously, is a big deal. So, make sure you use the correct citation format whether that's APA, MLA, or whatever. I just don't want you, your friends, or anyone you might know to get an F on a paper, to get kicked out of school, or something worse if you plagiarize. It really is a big deal - I guarantee it!
That is everything I have for you. So, make sure you use an outline, cite your sources, and then choose your topic carefully. And, if you would love to get my how to write an A paper outline, I’d love to offer it to you for free – just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, a message at www.facebook.com/acecookietutoring, or through my website at www.acecookietutoring.com/contact-us. I’ll be sure to get my outline to you ASAP. With my outline, you're going to be able to do a couple of great things. Take the tips I've given you, and then use the outline so you can write a great thesis. I mean, if your thesis isn't any good, your paper is not gonna be very good. You've got to have a strong backbone to the paper which is what a strong thesis will do for you. Also use my outline so you can transition smoothly from paragraph to paragraph and earn an A. If you're transitioning poorly between your body paragraphs, there won’t be a nice flow throughout your paper. It won’t make sense why you went from this topic to that topic or why you used this fact instead of that one. It's not going to make your teacher very happy. Finally, the whole point of a paper is to teach your readers, to inform them, or maybe even to entertain them ie leave them feeling like, “Oh, well. This is a worthwhile paper!” My outline will help you do that.
Thank you so much for tuning in guys! I hope this helped, and I'll see you in the next video!
3 Reasons to Learn the Parts of Speech
Hey everyone! Jessyka Coulter here and Synthia Dove, and today we're going to teach or tutor you all about the eight parts of speech and why you should bother learning them.
So, if you have ever wondered why that's important and/or you know what benefit that will give you, go ahead and click that like button. Let us know you're there, and feel free to give us some love with heart button or even leave us a comment. Let us know, “Hey, this is something I really want to know.”
Before we get into that, just in case you're wondering who we are and why we are talking to you, I am Jessyka Coulter, the CEO and Founder of Ace Cookie Tutoring, and this is one of my contractors. Hi. I am Synthia Dove, and I am a high school English or language arts teacher. So, that means she works with kids on reading, English, … all that good stuff.
So, you're here to learn about those eight parts of speech. The first reason why to bother learning those eight parts of speech is to determine the meaning of unknown words. That's really important when you're reading because you're gonna run into words you don't know. If you don't know one word, should you stop and run and get the dictionary? Maybe not. If you know how to do this process, you'll make a better decision.
Hopefully that makes some sense! And, if you're getting something out of this, great to hear that! I do have a great, FREE document that Synthia created for us, and if you'd love to get your hands on that, I'll be posting a link in the description if it's not there already. The link is for a contact us form for my website (www.acecookietutoring.com/contact-us) . So, just go to that link, send us a message, and we'll get that document to you right away. It's got a great activity in there to practice the parts of speech, and it's a good review in case you've always been a little confused.
So, we've got a couple more things we want to tell you. The next reason to learn the parts of speech is to help yourself learn other languages. There was a time when I was teaching about subjective and objective words, and I didn't think the students were getting anything out of it; I thought it was kind of pointless. Then, the Spanish teacher came to me and said, “Thank you so much for teaching the students that because now when I'm teaching them in Spanish, they understand what's going on.” So, it is something useful both in English and other languages.
Alright guys - so that's two of the reasons why to learn the parts of speech. We've got another one, but before that, I just want to check in and see how you guys are doing. If this is making sense, if you're learning a lot (that is our goal), just click that thumbs up button; let us know you're there and learning lots. Thank you so much!
The next thing we want to tell you is all about reading and writing. When you know what the parts of speech are, you can figure out who's doing something or what's doing something and what they're doing. If you can't do that, you don't comprehend very much. What this lesson does is it helps you recognize the subject and verb as well as increases your reading comprehension which can do nothing but help you throughout the rest of your life.
Ok guys. You've got the three reasons why it is so important to learn the eight parts of speech. So, if you're listening, and you're thinking, “You know? I want to be able to learn these new words. I want to learn how to improve my reading comprehension, and I really want to learn a new language - maybe something simple like Spanish or something more exotic like German or French.” You've got to get your hands on this document! If you want to get that document, send a message through my website (www.acecookietutoring.com/contact-us) or even send me a message via Facebook (www.facebook.com/acecookietutoring) - whatever works best for you. You’ll get a great review activity all about the parts of speech and a fun activity to practice. So, if you want to actually learn your parts of speech because maybe you've always struggled or maybe you think there’s no point because you’re “not good at English,” this is the time to change that.
Thank you so much for tuning in guys. We are so happy to have you and maybe Synthia will be kind enough to join us in a future video
Have a great day everyone! Bye 😊
