This is Kei Sato from your sociology class. I’d like to ask you to give me some advice about the essay due next Friday. I’m not good at essay writing. In my mind, I know what I want to say, but when I write the essay, it ends up like the first draft I attached to this e-mail. I’m afraid my essay is going to [ ア ] to achieve a good grade. Could you tell me how I should revise it?
I read your essay.
The key to any good essay is planning and structure. Your points are good, but the layout isn’t. In the second paragraph, for example, you put two points together. You need to separate them and back them up with different facts and opinions.
If you can revise your essay this weekend, I’ll be able to check your second draft on Monday or Tuesday before the deadline.
