An essay is a piece of writing that is written to convince someone of something or to
simply inform the reader about a particular topic. In order for the reader to be convinced or
adequately informed, the essay must include several important components to make it flow in a
logical way. The main parts (or sections) to an essay are the intro, body, and conclusion. In a
standard short essay, five paragraphs can provide the reader with enough information in a short
amount of space. For a research paper or dissertation, however, it is essential that more than five
paragraphs are present in order not to overwhelm the reader with too much information in one
paragraph.
Intro:
 Must contain an attention grabber for the reader or at least make the essay sound
interesting, may begin with a quote about the particular topic
 Ensure that the intro moves from the general to the specific in regards to the topic
 Provides the reader with a “road map” of the essay in a logical order
 At the end there should be what is called a thesis statement, arguably the most important
component of the intro
 The thesis statement states the aim of the paper and may give insight into the author’s
examples and evidence
Body:
 Includes the evidence and support of the paper in addition to the author’s ideas
 Paragraphs must include a topic sentence which relates the discussion back to the thesis
statement
 Logical ordering of ideas: 3 types of order
1. Chronological order---order of time, good for narratives
2. Spatial order-good for descriptions of locations; top to bottom, e.g.
3. Emphatic order-least important to most important; most common for
college writing
 Ensure that transition sentences are present to create a good flow to the essay
 Include substantial examples and evidence to support your argument and remember to
cite, cite, cite!
 Make sure each example is relevant to your particular topic
Conclusion:
 This section should wrap all of your arguments and points
 Should restate the main arguments in a simplified manner
 Ensure that the reader is left with something to think about, particularly if it is an
argumentative essay
Always remember to allow time to rewrite the first draft of your essay and, then, to proofread
it before turning it in. For help, visit the Writing Center!

My sister, who is now graduating from the university, cannot utter her thoughts on paper at all and two years ago she wanted to quit her studies only because of the fact that she could not take tests for writing an essay. Then my aunt offered her to ask for help on the Internet. Where we drove in search to and found this resource https://www.wishtv.com/sponsored/7-best-essay-writing-services/. By the way, only professional writers who do not make grammatical or punctual errors work there. Ah, yes, they haven't forgotten yet they also check their essays for plagiarism before handing over their work.
