I tend to misuse commas a lot, which on my essays were labeled “comma splices.” In the first few essays that I wrote, I had a few of these comma splices.

As far as content goes, I feel as though I learned how to be more versatile in my writing. Instead of writing just one way, I have learned how to write according

The most glaring thing that I feel that I am doing wrong is that when I read a paper that is loaded with commas, I tend to point them out without much help from the tutee. Take the following paragraph, for example (which is a rough copy from a tutee of mine - who wasn't a foreigner to our country): Snowmobiles, on the other hand, are, for example, a very

    would fail to correct them because I wasn’t aware of how to. For example, I didn’t know how to fix a comma splice. I always became confused as to where I had to put the commas; not knowing where to place the commas would cause me to create comma splices.

As I studied more and attended every class, I discovered what they were
