3 College Prep Tips To Give Your Academic Writing An Edge

If you plan to go to a four-year college or community college, academic writing is an important skill to learn because it will help you get good grades on your written assignments.

Do you need a way to give your middle school or high school writing a boost? Don’t worry – this article isn’t going to tell you to spend extra hours studying in the library.

Read on to discover three college prep tips that will help you improve your academic writing.

1. Practice Your Writing Day To Day

If you’re like most middle school or high school students, you probably do more writing in your day-to-day life than you think.

You may update your social media accounts, text your family and friends, or even keep a blog.

Did you know you can work on your spelling and grammar almost effortlessly while doing these activities?

CorrectEnglish works anywhere in your computer browser or on your iOS or Android device to correct writing errors. Not only that, but it offers explanations along with each correction so that you can learn better writing on the fly, whether you’re posting to Instagram or texting your best friend.


2. Challenge Your Friends

You and your friends probably have goals for when you graduate. Hopefully, you’re all very supportive of one another because you understand that having a great community helps you achieve your dreams.

Challenging your friends to use CorrectEnglish with you will help all of you get better writing grades and earn admission to better schools after you graduate.

Plus, think about how flawless the grammar and spelling in your group texts will be!


3. Learn How to Write Professional Emails

Being able to write professional emails is one of the most important skills you should have both in college and when you eventually try to land a job.

Your high school and middle school writing practice will come in useful when you have to email a professor to ask for an extension or a hiring manager to send a post-interview thank you note.

You’ll want to ensure you make a positive impression, and that means practicing good grammar.

When you start college, professors will have the same expectation of your emails as they do of your papers – academic emails should be thoughtful and free of grammar errors.

Get in the habit now of writing professional emails by installing CorrectEnglish in your browser or on your smart phone. If you don’t have an email account, you can still practice writing professionally by making sure your text messages are polished.
