Step by Step Online Essay Writing Review.

This essay guide was prepared by Martha Perkins.
Over the summer of 1999 she looked for resources on the web to use with her students. When she didn't find what she was looking for, she created it herself. To begin the tutorial select: Online Essay Writing Review.

She developed this online tutorial to help sophomore literature students at the University of Houston get back into the practice of writing literature essays. The demographics of her classes rarely include English majors as students. Because of this, students often need to be reminded of the fundamental concepts of essay writing. The online review gives students a variety of suggestions, along with a few quizzes to motivate effective participation. This tutorial is free and available to any writing center or individual instructor who wishes to use it. The only thing she asks in return is for users of the tutorial to register (for free). This registration will not obligate you in any way or put you on a mailing list. The information from the registration will allow me to keep track of where the tutorial is being used and perhaps with what success. You are free to either download a Writing Center version (available after registration), or you may link the tutorial to your website. Please register your use even if you decide to link the tutorial instead of download it. is the URL for the tutorial.
If you have any questions about the tutorial or you would like ideas about how to register student use of the tutorial, please don't hesitate to contact Martha Perkins at her email.
