Revision is a difficult task to undertake. In many cases, it is a fear that paralyzes students. There are many benefits to revision that students may not understand. This may be one reason why it is so intimidating for students to revise a paper. Tutors should help students recognize that revision allows them to see where they can improve content organization, notice grammatical errors, and be more confident in their writing. Tutors should also give students specific tips to make the revision process easier.
