First off, allow me to thank you for signing up for The Tutoring Solution‘s Writing Program. This first assignment, The Autobiography, is designed to establish a format for your writing. The writing sample that you complete will allow us to get to know a little bit about you and analyze your writing to develop measures that will help us best develop your writing ability.
Your essay needs to be five paragraphs long. It needs to contain an opening paragraph, three body paragraphs and a closing paragraph.
The beginning of your introductory paragraph is known as a hook. A hook is supposed to capture the reader’s attention and get them to read more. There are many different ways to write a good hook. One example of a good hook is the personal anecdote. For this essay, I would like you to use the personal anecdote to start your essay. The personal anecdote is a short, entertaining account of something that happened to you. The anecdote must be different then any other event you describe in your body paragraphs. The last sentence of your introductory paragraph should be your thesis. The thesis tells the reader what your essay is going to be about and introduces your three body paragraphs.
Three Body Paragraphs:
You will choose three separate topics in your body paragraphs to write about. You may choose one of the following or come up with one of your own:
- a childhood memory
- an embarrassing moment
- a proud moment
- a gift that was meaningful
- a pet that meant a lot
- the funniest thing that ever happened to you
- a great vacation
- a moment of personal triumph
- a meaningful toy
- a moment of conflict
Your closing paragraph needs begin with a link to the personal anecdote you described in the beginning. A link refers to your hook in order to bring your essay full circle. In the middle of your conclusion, restate the thesis that you used for the last sentence of your introductory paragraph. Be sure to word it differently then you did before. Lastly, use a clever ending for the last sentence of your essay. This sentence should aim to make the reader happy, surprised, shocked, or pleased.
