The thesis statement is what gives an essay direction. Knowing how to write a thesis statement — the topic, a claim about that topic, and three points to support it — can help a writer start an essay in the most clear and concise way. Not only does it help the writer organize subsequent information in the essay, but a strong thesis statement helps the reader understand the information that leads to the conclusion.

Time4Writing’s free writing resources cover the writing of a thesis statement. Designed to help students improve their writing skills, regardless of academic grade or proficiency level, Time4Writing’s 8-week courses provide more in-depth practice and one-on-one instruction by a certified teacher.
