My name is Mr. Pullen and I teach IB 11th Grade English. The most important piece of advice I can give students taking English is to not procrastinate major assignments. Often, students struggle because they choose not to meet deadlines, do not take advantage of the help that teachers offer, or they simply don't care., but if you start on long-term assignments early or at least two days before the deadline you’ll be much more successful. Additionally, if you read your essays out loud you can eliminate many careless errors.
This is a new year and every single student has a chance to make this the best year yet. So, don’t forget to complete assignments on time, ask for teacher's help, and maintain a good attitude.
