Would anyone on this forum be willing to help an international student with the SAT Essay? I don’t have any teachers who understand the marking system, etc. and i would like to know what level my essays are on so i can improve?
Hardly any colleges ask for the essay.
By far, the most important thing the essay must do is ANALYZE HOW the author builds an argument to persuade the reader. So many students don’t do this. Instead they simply summarize and write about what they read. You will lose points if you don’t explain the how.
It’s pretty easy to do the basics. Focus on what College Board says here to explain the HOW:
evidence, such as facts or examples, to support claims.
reasoning to develop ideas and to connect claims and evidence.
stylistic or persuasive elements, such as word choice or appeals to emotion, to add power to the ideas expressed.
Address all three components, not just the easy ones of demonstrating comprehension and writing skills.
