Student Questions

student questions

We are proud of how comprehensive our website is and try to stay ahead of the curve and predict the questions and concerns that students are experiencing.  However, we work with thousands of students a year, from universities all around the world.  Every once in a while, a student has a question that we have not yet addressed in our tutorials and guides.  That is why we developed our student questions section.  Not quite a FAQ, our student question section is where students can go to find out more information about the art and craft of academic writing.

What type of questions do students ask us?  Honestly, it depends on the student.  Some of our previous customers have asked very specific, technical questions about different writing types.  We answer those questions for the students, and sometimes use those questions to develop guides and tutorials for our entire customer base.  For example, we began to get a number of questions about the synthesis essay, and realized that many professors had begun to use this term to describe a very specific type of argumentative/persuasive essay that requires the student to call on class reading lists for their supporting information.  Once we saw that need, we expanded our answer from the student question section and into our tutorial section.

Other students ask very specific questions about their own projects.  We have answered student request on topics as varied as can we suggest sources for a particular type of essay and how a student can avoid run-on sentences in their writing.  We get a lot of questions about the writing process, and the answers vary for that because each of our writers has his or her own process.  In other words, our student questions section is designed to give you an opportunity to ask a professional writer any and all of the questions you may have while working on your own writing assignments.
