Writing Skills Review from PrepStep's Core English Skills

No matter what major you pursue, if you can’t express yourself clearly in writing, your grades (and confidence) will suffer. The resources below include techniques you can apply to any writing assignment for class — and even emails, resumes, and the writing you do for fun. Get started here:

  • Begin with the Writing Skills Tutorial, which guides you through the writing process from start to finish. Learn strategies for coming up with original ideas, organizing them in a clear way, finding the right tone, and catching errors before you submit your work. Then use the prompt at the end of the tutorial to draft a sample essay, and review the instant feedback when you’re done.
  • Build your skills further with question sets targeting the foundations of great academic writing.
  • Finally, practice your new skills in your writing for class, and return to the tutorial as needed if you see a pattern in your instructors’ comments on your work.
