How can I improve my academic writing?
Learn to recognize your weaknesses and eliminate them. There are many issues students usually fail to see such as wordiness, too long direct quotations, paragraphs finishing with citations, new information presented in the conclusion, any violation of the instructions.
Therefore, attend to the feedback of your professor and avoid making similar mistakes. If you don’t feel like asking your professor for a feedback, you can order your paper to be graded – this includes a general feedback together with detailed recommendations on what and how can be improved. This way, you will learn to recognize and to avoid mistakes you are prone to make.
