Tips How to Write an Essay Like a Pro
In most of the essay writing guide websites, you would find some ridiculous tips on professional essay writing. They will have something as this:
This is the opening paragraph of your essay. In this paragraph, you state the thesis of your essay. You let your readers know what you are going to talk about and what your point is. It has to be interesting and forceful so that your readers are compelled to read the rest of the essay.
The body can be composed of multiple paragraphs. In each paragraph, you would state one point and derive some conclusion from it. Every paragraph starts with a topic sentence that states the thesis of the paragraph, followed by the supportive sentences (information).
It is the closing paragraph of your essay. In this paragraph, you sum up all the most important points of your essay and write down the inference. You introduce no new points here that might need a detailed explanation. This is where you draw the line.
