This help you link up your ideas, concepts in your head so you can organise your essay.
Or you can use a diagram and branch out from the main topic.

Tell readers the gist of your essay. This can include the main ideas of your essay or elaboration of your topic. Eg: "I seek to analyse the impact of Covid-19 on oil prices"

3. Write the introduction paragraph
Attract the reader's attention! Make the reader want to read on. Use a shocking statement, a quote or summary of your topic.

4. Write the body
Each paragraph will have the same structure - write one of your main ideas as the introductory sentence, then add the supporting statistics or argument.

Provide a closure. This paragraph should be 3-5 sentences that summarises your main ideas and perspective.

Tutor City: #1 Singapore English Home Tuition Agency

As technology advanced, social media has become part of our daily lives. In Singapore, students are highly exposed and influenced to the use of Singlish through internet. Singlish is widely used by many people to communicate in emails or mobile devices. Thus, the use of informal English would lead to great confusion to the younger generation.

Being proficient in standard English will have an advantage over others not only in personal life but to get ahead in the globalised world. In order to excel and score well in English language, standard English is best learned by regular writing and speaking. Hence it is important to rectify the improper use of English and enhance the use of Standard English.

A good case study is the defunct website meetatthegate.com, which our agency has just taken over to continue its excellent work. The original intent was the promotion of good writing and intelligent debate, and recommendation of good literary works, books and essays to enthusiastic readers. To start with, we have a dedicated page on the best books to read, check it out now!

How to learn English more effectively, one might ask?

Polar Bear 《小白熊》 a month ago

I struggled to find an experienced tutor to my daughter who is going to have her N-level examination this year. Googled and found Tutor City randomly and contacted Benson and seek his help to get some recommendation of Math tutor. He promptly responded and shared a list of tutors which matched the criteria I mentioned and we managed to short list 2 and interviewed them. The whole process was quite smooth and straight forward. I highly recommend Benson if you are looking a home tutor as the whole process is hassle free. Thanks Benson. :-)
