Composition Writing Skills

My cousin never got above ten marks when it comes to composition.she lacked ideas and above all or rather to make matter worse,she had one of these ugliest handwriting in school.her performance in science,maths was very good including G.H.C but things were significantly differently when it comes to languages in the area of insha and composition. During one of the holidays,she approached me and shared to me her problem while seemingly disturbed her so much and stressed her owing to the fact that the following year she would be class eight candidate.After sharing i agree to helping her improve her handwriting.After two weeks she had improve her handwriting remarkably.the second thing i did was to go through her composition and noticed a lot of mistakes,her grammar was good and spelling but composition writing skills are what she i gave her books on sample K.C.P.E composition and together we started to share.believe me that term her performance in composition and insha improved and teachers congratulated her.he following she was among the best in the languages
