I hate apples. How could we improve THIS topic sentence?Actually, I think that a good education is always given at school, with teachers (of course), but in case of doubts It answers the essay question, but it is not as a first sentence.Actually is not a good way to start an essayAmbiguity (doubts about the teacher?, when doing homework?)

BASIC RULES OF THUMP IN ESSAYSGive opinions.Agree and disagree in a formal or neutral register.Choose whether to agree or disagree with the statement provided in the task, or discuss both sides.Plan ONE paragraph for each of the THREE argumens carefully.
Get some practice in writing appropriate opening and closing paragraphs.
How could we improve THIS first sentence?As I see it, it is wrong to learn at home?What does she mean?Wrong is a strong wordAs I see it, teaching children at home rather than sending them to school is not a good option.There is nothing wrong with rephrasing the question, provided the next sentence justifies it.Brackets in essaysIn a formal register, any statement within brackets should be grammatically independent of the sentence in which it occurs. That is the sentence should be complete, even if the contents of the brackets were to be removed.Keep brackets to a minimum!
