Frequently Asked Questions

Why did you start this website, Writer X?

I wanted a way to share the information I have gleaned from my experience in the classroom without being beholden to content guidelines at my current college. I may present views that do not align with my existing employment institutions.

Why are so many grammar articles on a website about writing college essays?

The simple answer is that, as an educator, I have seen that grammar issues are still something many students struggle with. Either because they lack experience, forgot the rules, or never learned them. I don’t judge anyone for their grammar issues, but understanding the essentials of grammar and sentence craft is one way to increase an essay’s quality exponentially.
