What Made the Difference?
He earned an A in my course (you knew the second teacher was me, right?)  Then he went on to earn an A in Eng 112 with a different teacher.  I miss my students.  But I'm glad the scheduling didn't work out just so he knew he could apply what he'd learned anywhere.  He will soon graduate as an accountant. 
Messy, Scratchy Outlines Work Fine

His story is similar to many.  The future nurse who is getting the next-level degree but hasn't written any essays in years.  The future mechanic with just 1 writing class looming in the way.  The future professionals who just need some clear steps and concepts for writing success.

Just like those students, you have to pass at least 1 class with essays.  Then you can go do all the things you actually want to do.

You probably want to:
  • Graduate with your degree
  • Continue or start your career
  •  Help people
  •  Earn good money doing it

I would love to be part of your journey to improve.  You can do it.  But the writing can be an obstacle.  A road block.  It can feel like Mt. Everest.   You can get it done, though.  Let's get to that.
Steps to Writing an Essay
Without Staring at a Blank Page or Yelling at a Computer:
1. Prewrite   Develop some ideas.  This part is creative, so not every idea is a keeper, and that's OK.  Give yourself permission to think of 21 silly things.  You might brainstorm, freewrite, or web/cluster.

2. Plan  Organize the best ideas in a way that will lead the reader through your thinking to get them to understand or believe what you want.  Outlines are good but don't need to be fancy.

3. Draft  Just get words onto the page or screen, mostly in sentences, but not worrying too much.

4. Revise  Look at content and ask what needs to be moved, improved, added, or removed.  Everything that stays in the essay must support the thesis (see below).  Instead of throwing away things that you like, you can keep them, just not in that essay.

5. Edit  Look at the little details (grammar, spelling, punctuation, and format) and fix them, so your reader can focus on the content.

6. Publish  Turn it in.  Learn ahead of time how the teacher wants that done.  If it involves uploading a file, practice ahead to create that type of file and reach the upload page.

Hint: Before you publish, you can return to previous steps as you need, so don't worry too much about getting it perfect at any step... just do what you can and come back to that step later.

Hint: You can use a few ~~~ symbols in a typed draft to remind yourself to make that part better later.  It's easy to scan for in revision.  I revise a lot.

Hint: This is how the pros do it.  You just don't see them using the process.
One Key Concept
From the Top 5 in the Report:

The thesis is your opinion on your specific topic.  Here's a good way to write one.  Start with, “What I really want to say is ____________.”  Then fill in the blank with a complete sentence.  That's your thesis.  Just get rid of “What I really want to say” in editing.
One Key Unwritten Rule
From the Top 8 in the Report:
Academic writing is more formal than most people usually speak.  Think business meeting instead of chatting around the kitchen table.  If you imagine writing to your teacher and classmates, it usually helps get the right tone.
One Last Idea
From the Report:
You are not alone. 

You don't have to figure it out by yourself.  In fact, if the class has things like outlines and rough drafts due, that's not busywork.  The teacher is trying to help you take what you have and make it better.  The college has a tutoring service.  Your classmates can help.  Ask them what's missing or which paragraph is the weakest, and they will probably tell you.

Many students struggle with writing.  The K-12 system, focused on testing, doesn't do much to prepare people for writing essays.  People aren't automatically good at writing essays.  Instead, people learn as they go.  Practice and attention improve your skills, just like you've improved your skills in so many other things.  A few key concepts and unwritten rules could really help.  Even hearing some of the same ideas in a new way could really help.

If what you've read so far is enough for you, great!  I've met my goal.  Please share these steps with those you meet.  You can pass your classes, even the ones with writing, and earn your degree.

Maybe you haven't thought much about how your career also helps other people.  You will provide skilled labor (goods or services) and bring value to the community.  In ways that not everyone can.  That's awesome!  If you're ready, may you be well!

But most people want more help and guidance writing essays.  It's challenging.  You might not have time to figure it all out alone.  You've got a lot else going on.  Lots of classes, maybe a job.  Plus a lot of people face challenges with transportation, daycare, and family members who don't understand why a career or career change is so important.

The very best help is personal mentoring.  We could meet online with voice chat once a week and set goals.  Then go over which goals you met, offer some encouragement, and set some new goals.  If you're interested, email support@ghunterhanks.com and there might be a spot available for $500 a month.

There's a limit to how many people I can personally mentor towards reaching their education goals.  Also, that's not feasible for everyone.

To meet your need for a step-by-step approach to writing essays, I created How to Write College Essays: Get It Done So You Can Graduate and Help People.  It's an easy to understand condensed version of 17 years of teaching experience.  The best of the how-to parts of many, many classes.
