Reflection Essay

Over the years I have struggled with my English classes, but never give up. It has been a little over four years since I have attended school, it seems I have forgotten a lot I had learned in the past. During these past eight weeks in this English class I will admit I have spent countless hours writing, thinking, planning, dreading, and of course learning. Sometimes I felt like quitting and I could no longer go on but I continued to try my best complete each assignment, even when I was lost and the instructions were not clear enough for me to understand.

After using the online writing tutor, I felt more confident knowing there is help right there when I needed it. I will definitely be using the writing center throughout my time here at Brandman. All the speeches, clips and videos you picked out for the class to watch were all great and informational. I really enjoyed them all and plan to keep them in my favorites for later reference. The writing process and the appeals pathos, logos, ethos I will not forget and find myself picking them out in writing and speech. The online library search is great and there is a ton of information to use through the library that I will also continue to use throughout my time here at Brandman.
