The structure of coursework improved my writing skills. In one experience, my peer editing session explained that my childhood story showed a simple and clear writing style, but it wasn’t concise. This feedback forced me to evaluate my story and see in what ways it could be concise along with other writing tools that I incorporated.

The course enabled me to confront my weaknesses in writing that I couldn’t in other academic classes.
The Advanced Writing class will help me with anything necessary that I need help with and it’ll keep me on the right track to shoot my best score on the ACTs.

Initially, when I first walked into class, I had no respect for writing papers or the class. However, as the weeks progressed and the weeks went by, I’ve slowly gained the respect that English deserves.
