academic writingGi­ve a man a fish and you fe­ed him for a day; te­ach a man to fish and you fe­ed him for a li­feti­me.

–Sep­hardic phi­losop­her Mo­ses Ma­imo­nides (1135–1204 C.E.)

The wri­ters at Es­sa­yKZ Ho­use ha­ve for years pro­vided cus­tom-pac­ka­ged es­say wri­ting ser­vi­ces to cli­ents for such pur­po­ses as aca­demic edi­ting, and the wri­ting of ent­ri­es for app­li­cati­on forms and ma­ny ot­her pur­po­ses. Alt­ho­ugh the­se ser­vi­ces are use­ful, we’ve co­me to re­ali­ze that in or­der for our cli­ents to suc­ce­ed at Wes­tern ins­ti­tutes of hig­her le­ar­ning, ma­ny re­al­ly ne­ed to be ta­ught how to wri­te suc­cess­ful Eng­lish-lan­gu­age pa­pers, rat­her than just ha­ve es­sa­ys writ­ten for them.

In res­ponse to this ne­ed, Es­sa­yKZ Ho­use is now of­fe­ring, in ad­di­ti­on to our nor­mal es­say-wri­ting and edi­ting ser­vi­ces, a ba­sic aca­demic wri­ting co­ur­se for use in al­most eve­ry aca­demic le­vel. One of our Ame­rican-born se­ni­or wri­ters, using what he’s run ac­ross in co­unt­less aca­demic edi­ting as­sign­ments with us as well as re­port-wri­ting ex­pe­ri­en­ce he’s pic­ked up from both the en­gi­ne­ering world and as a jo­ur­na­list, will pre­sent a se­ri­es of les­sons in wri­ting re­se­arch pa­pers that fo­cuses on re­port struc­tu­re and help­ful tech­ni­qu­es for suc­cess­ful­ly be­ing un­ders­to­od in writ­ten Eng­lish. Ba­sed on his ex­pe­ri­en­ce with Ka­zakh stu­dents, our ins­truc­tor will show you how to pro­duce work that mo­re clo­sely ref­lects the things you want to say in your ho­mework as­sign­ments and app­li­cati­on ans­wers.

The first of our 8-we­ek co­ur­ses will be­gin at the end of Ap­ril, and will fe­atu­re we­ek­ly e-ma­il in­te­rac­ti­on, along with 1–2 ho­urs of Q&A audio chat ses­si­ons each Wed­nesday (hen­ce a li­mit of 24 stu­dents per ses­si­on), and as­sign­ments that bu­ild to­ward the comp­le­ti­on of a 1500-word re­se­arch pa­per of the stu­dent’s cho­osing. The best of the­se we will pub­lish on­li­ne (na­tural­ly with app­rop­ri­ate acc­re­dita­ti­on) as a de­mons­tra­ti­on of what our stu­dent-cli­ents are ca­pab­le of pro­ducing on the­ir own, gi­ven the right ins­truc­ti­on.

Ex­pert: Ben M. An­gel

Mr. An­gel has six years of en­gi­ne­ering ex­pe­ri­en­ce that con­cent­ra­ted in lar­ge part upon re­port-wri­ting. His aca­demic ca­re­er to­ok him thro­ugh the Uni­ver­si­ty of Wa­shing­ton and the Uni­ver­si­ty of Alas­ka Fa­ir­banks in the Uni­ted Sta­tes, and bro­ught him aro­und the world to as­sign­ments in pla­ces as far-flung as Azer­ba­ijan, the Phi­lip­pi­nes, Kyr­gyzs­tan, Qa­tar, the Ale­utian Is­lands, and Ala­bama in the Uni­ted Sta­tes. He was res­ponsib­le for over­se­eing the cre­ation of do­cumen­ta­ti­on that bro­ught an in­terna­ti­onal cons­truc­ti­on ma­nage­ment com­pa­ny to cer­ti­fica­ti­on un­der ISO stan­dards for en­vi­ron­mental and qua­lity ma­nage­ment. Most re­cent­ly, he was in­volved in the cre­ation of an on­li­ne user gu­ide for an aca­demic tes­ting soft­wa­re com­pa­ny.

Mr. An­gel al­so has jo­ur­na­lism ex­pe­ri­en­ce in ex­cess of six years. He has writ­ten for pub­li­cati­ons in Det­ro­it and Se­att­le, as well as in Uk­ra­ine, Re­pub­lic of Ge­or­gia, and Chi­le. He has tri­ed his hand at tra­vel wri­ting, both for a tra­vel agen­cy and as part of his per­so­nal blog, and du­ring a bri­ef stint as a mu­sic jo­ur­na­list had in­tervi­ewed mem­bers of the grun­ge-rock gro­up Nir­va­na and fol­lo­wed an all-wo­man rock band thro­ugh Po­land. He has edi­ted sto­ri­es in re­cent years for such pub­li­cati­ons as I Lo­ve Chi­le and the Minsk He­rald, as well as an en­terta­in­ment pub­li­cati­on pro­duced in the mid-90s by Ky­iv’s Pe­rek­hid Me­dia. He tra­ined for this ro­le in part by ser­ving as the edi­tor of The Cur­rent at Wa­shing­ton Sta­te’s Gre­en Ri­ver Col­le­ge, a scho­ol he gra­du­ated from in 1989.

Mr. An­gel’s te­ac­hing ex­pe­ri­en­ce inc­lu­des ser­ving as a te­ac­her’s as­sistant for an Int­ro­duc­ti­on to En­gi­ne­ering co­ur­se at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Alas­ka, a cor­po­rate tra­iner for ISO awa­reness in the Phi­lip­pi­nes, and less for­mally as an on­li­ne cu­rator, ans­we­ring user qu­es­ti­ons whi­le over­se­eing the mer­ging of in­di­vidu­al user-in­put fa­mily tre­es in­to one hu­mani­ty-wi­de tree on Ge­ni. His le­aders­hip skills ha­ve even ear­ned him the Bill Ken­nelly Le­aders­hip Scho­lars­hip at Gre­en Ri­ver Col­le­ge in 1988, an award won in part as a re­sult of comp­le­ting an es­say on the sub­ject.

Mr. An­gel’s phi­losop­hy on edu­cati­on strong­ly fol­lows the idea that you get on­ly what you gi­ve. He se­es his ro­le as fa­cili­tating tho­se who re­al­ly want to le­arn, and as such, he will pro­vide as much sup­port as he can gi­ve to tho­se who do the­ir ho­mework. Tho­se who are simp­ly lo­oking to app­ly as litt­le in­to le­ar­ning for as much cre­dit as pos­sible will simp­ly not get much from the co­ur­ses he te­ac­hes, and for such pe­op­le it ma­kes litt­le fi­nan­ci­al sen­se to ta­ke co­ur­ses from him. But for tho­se who are sin­ce­rely lo­oking to le­arn, Mr. An­gel fe­els strong­ly in do­ing what he can to help such pe­op­le suc­ce­ed in the­ir edu­cati­onal go­als they’ve set for co­ur­ses ta­ken with him.

SYL­LA­BUS

Pre­requi­sites: A stu­dent ta­king this co­ur­se is ex­pected to ha­ve had the equi­valent of three years of class­ro­om uni­ver­si­ty tra­ining, or a ba­sic abi­lity at Eng­lish com­po­siti­on. This may be from in-class tra­ining, or in­tensi­ve or ac­ce­lera­ted clas­ses that bring the stu­dent up to this le­vel of abi­lity — the way a stu­dent has got­ten to this le­vel do­esn’t mat­ter. What mat­ters is a ba­sic abi­lity to com­po­se simp­le pa­rag­raphs in Eng­lish. We’ll ta­ke it from the­re.

Ter­mi­nal ob­jecti­ve: A stu­dent ta­king this co­ur­se will be ex­pected af­ter comp­le­ti­on to ha­ve the abi­lity to re­se­arch a pa­per of 1500 words or mo­re from scratch, and to pre­sent it with cor­rect ci­tati­ons in ac­cordan­ce with a stan­dard ci­tati­on met­hod.
