Tips on Academic Writing

1. Avoid contractions

2. There is / There are:
We need to be clear and concise.
There are many issues students face or
Students face many issues.
This makes sentences stronger.

3. Avoid really, very, so
These words weaken your writing...

4. Passive vs. active
Passive voice OK in sciences.
Most university writing = active voices.
The active is a stronger approach. Subject, verb, object.

5. Strong Verbs

Turn the noun - assistance, into the verb - assisted.
