How do you write an A+ essay?

I used to think getting an A+ on an essay in university was impossible. However, having the right tools and mindset has helped me make the impossible possible. Here is a breakdown of how I write an A+ worthy essay: 1.Have Confidence: A little confidence goes a long way! 2. Plan ahead: Make sure you start your essay well in advance to leave yourself adequate time for proper research, writing, and revision. Procrastinating and leaving your essay until the night before does not leave you enough time to compose a well thought out paper. 3. Pick a topic: Normally I choose two or three topics that interest me and do a bit of research on each and see which one has the best information to back up my argument. Picking a topic that interests me keeps me better engaged during the research and writing process. 4. Do your research: I use the research guides provided on my universities library website to find peer-reviewed evidence-based articles. Most professors look at the quality of resources you are using to write your paper. I always check to see if my professor has a rubric available so I know exactly what they are looking for in an essay. Rubrics are a handy tool to make sure you have all the requirements in the essay. 5. Make an outline: Before I start writing a paper, I make a brief outline so I am better organized when it comes to writing the actual paper. 6. Write the paper: If I get writer's block, taking a break and returning to the paper later is more time efficient than spending hours just staring at a blank screen. 7. Proofread and Revise: After proofreading my essay myself, I put my paper through a grammar check to see if there are any errors I am missing. I use the 'Grammarly'  application available for free online. Asking a friend to proofread your essay or visiting your school’s writing center are also good options. Writing centers are great if you are not a strong writer or need some advice on how to make improvements to your essay. It is also important to make sure you have accurately referenced any work that is not your own to avoid plagiarism. The Purdue owl website online is a great reference for making sure you are using the proper format. 8. Submit your Essay!Hope these tips are helpful if you really want that A+ on your next essay!

Well, my English teacher only read your first essay at the beginning of school to set your mark, then you get same marks for the rest of year. For an example,  I wrote essay by myself (as ESL),  next one I had my tutor who is in English Major helped me.. but the marks are same.. So.. she doesn't read it..

This is great! I have another tip, make sure you know what the teacher/prof is looking for. If there's a rubric you should 100% read it because you could right a great essay, but it might not be exactly what your teacher or prof is looking for!
