In the long run, it is not helpful when parents constantly correct their child’s homework before they turn it in. Correcting your student’s homework gives teachers a false impression and ultimately hurts your child. If everyone’s homework in the class is perfect, the teacher will assume everyone gets the material and will either move on or give a test on the material. Teachers use homework to decide which students need more review, which are ready to move on, and whether the lesson was effective.
When writing a college essay, communicate to the college who you are or what you have experienced that makes you who you are.
College essays are relatively brief usually with a 500-word limit. Determine the point you want to make about yourself and back it up with plenty of supporting details.
Make sure college essays are direct and without filler. An admissions director can spot filler immediately.
