We were honored to listen to United States Congressman Elijah Cummings, who was a keynote speaker, at a graduation ceremony last night. Congressman Cummings geared his speech towards education and succeeding. A profound statement that resonated in his speech about education, determination, and success was:
One of the tutors at All 4 One Tutoring told me that during a session with one of our clients he asked the client, “What helps you to retain information/skills the best?” The client, who is a young college student in Poland, stated that he learns best by showing or teaching others what he has learned or gained so far. I thought this was great and profound, because I do believe that by teaching others you teach yourself.
A few months ago, when I spoke to a student in one of my Spanish classes at a private university I teach at, he told me that by helping his son with his Spanish, helped him. These shared stories reminds me of a Latin proverb:
When trying to solve word problems, look for keys words that show which mathematical operation to use (ex. total = addition, product = multiplication, difference = subtraction), know how to distinguish necessary information from unnecessary information, and finally, know what you’re asked to solve.
A run-on sentence is a common error in writing. First of all, a run-on sentence is two or more independent clauses that run together without proper punctuation.
To correct a run-on sentence, you can make the independent clauses that are running together separate sentences. Make sure you have punctuation. You can also use a comma (,) with a conjunction. The most commonly used conjunctions are and, but, so, or, and yet. Lastly, you can use a semi-colon to correct a run-on sentence. Using these three methods will help you eliminate run-sentences and become a better writer.
