Writing a diagnostic essay -Introducing yourself

Sep 8, 2009   #1
Hi all:

I have a difficulty of starting an essay about introducing myself to my instructor.

In the essay it needs to be covered with the following:
- your name
- your educational background
- some information on the role of reading and writing in your current work or future career
- your feelings, likes, and dislikes about reading and writing
- any other information about your interests, goals, etc.

When my instructor gave me this topic, I am not sure what the topic of this. For the first, I want to start off with someone's quote about reading and go from there. However, where to begin is what I am struggling about.

Can anyone help me to come up with an idea of how to begin an essay like this.

Thanks in advance

Just an idea..."It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it. Oscar Wilde" I was was born Bill Asher, and i cannot help it, nor do I wish to...

Well, you have a list of things you need to include. So, why not start by carefully writing down all the information you need to put into the essay, and they seeing if you can find a way to tie it all together? Once you have a draft, you can post it here and we can help you revise it.

that was very nice beginning, but can you explain what the quote means?

okay so carefully writing down all the information I need

let's see...

Bill Asher is the name I am using since I have arrived to Canada eight years ago. With no training with English reading and writing, getting my high school diploma in Canada makes me feel proud but difficult. My recent educational achievement is a Mechanical Engineering Design Option diploma from Lakehead University.

When people say that reading is a easy task that everyone can do, I beg differ. I actually am troubled with reading the essential meaning from the information that I read. Unlike mechanical drawings, reading texts from a book takes effort and time to understand what the author is trying to say.

Writing, on the other hand, makes writers to think who the audiences are, what kind of information should be included, or what vocabulary should be used. For example, employee has given a technician a series instruction of drawing a gear set. That instruction should include the details of units, size, and the location of gears. If the employee uses hard vocabularies in the instruction, the technician will waste his precious time to look up the vocabularies from a dictionary.

I don't know if I am off topic or not. But I think I mix up the requirement that the instructor gives

Sorry for giving you so much work about my writing

Thanks again
