Stephen Uchenna Eneh
Writing coach, English editor and education consultant
Apart from his graduate and post-graduate education in English and Literary studies, 9 years of experience in teaching the English language – grammar, writing and others – and writing and editing for professionals and organisations, enabled Mr Stephen to come up with this most timely book, The Rudiments of English Composition. This book was written to eliminate the fears many students harbour about writing, clear the myths holding them back and guide them in classroom-teachers-style to write A-worthy essays and letters not just in their exams but in national and international publications.
What's in this Book
Writing essays and letters should not be difficult for anyone who can hold normal conversation or narrate an experience. However, many students find it hard to write a good composition largely due to limited or poor guidance, myths, and phobia for the English Language. ‘The Rudiments of English Composition’ published in Nigeria by Fratee Media is a step-by-step guide on essay writing. It takes students through the process of writing, starting from the pre-writing stage to the final draft. It touches different areas of writing where students often commit errors and explains in detail how to overcome those errors. Some of these areas, among others, include punctuation, paragraphing, introduction and some commonly confused words, etc.
The book pays concise attention to the essay topics that form the bases for WAEC and NECO questions. It also has sample essays presented at the end of each chapter where these essays are discussed. It is aimed at helping students build the skills of writing as well as gain confidence in essay writing especially in these examinations.

Praise for Author & 'Rudiments of English Composition'
Learning topics that deal with Oral English was always a difficult thing for me, especially when we were taught word stress but with the help of our teacher, Mr Stephen, I was able to have oral English at the tip of my fingers even word stress. Mr Stephen also taught me how to write books; when to give a suspense to capture the readers attention and many others. Now I am currently working on writing my own book!
Mr. Eneh is one of the best English teachers who really pushed his students to the best of their ability. Especially for essay writing, which made me think outside the box, and use critical thinking skills to improve my reading comprehension abilities. I graduated 2017, and currently getting my Doctorate in Physical Therapy at the University of Maryland, School of Medicine, USA
Mr. Stephen Eneh is a dedicated and effective teacher whose teachings in secondary school has helped me greatly with my university English course. His involvement of the entire class through active questioning and clear explanations made me appreciate his teaching skills. I admire how he has helped me improve my writing from a previous C5 grade to a B3 in both WAEC and NECO examinations.
Prior to learning from him, my essay writing skills were lacking; however, through his guidance and support, I witnessed significant improvements in my writing style, structure, and overall coherence. These improvements undoubtedly gave a boost to my exam performance, particularly in the WAEC and NECO exams where I achieved impressive grades. Graduating in 2022, I am now in second (2nd) year and owe a great deal of my achievements to his dedication as a teacher.
Mr Stephen finds a way to blend the hardest parts of English into something simple and understandable. I personally was a student who found English tenses harder than it was supposed to be, but Mr Stephen made it clear that English is only difficult when you make it. During the examination, I kept repeating these words too myself and at the end of the day I passed English language in both WASSCE and NECO. I am now a graduate of the class of 2023 Graceland College.
His method of teaching is one in which everyone is carried along. I never thought English could be so easy until he proved me otherwise. To say that Mr Stephen completely transformed my ability to write a wonderful essay is an understatement. He is a remarkable teacher, one who takes his time and ensures everyone is on the same page at all times. He made me understand how to learn and study for my WAEC and NECO which led me to get a B3 in English Language in my WAEC examination.
In this book, Mr Stephen has further created in the mind of a reader that English language can be more interesting when one is guided, going through the book, you have filled up in simplest form the gaps that always suggest wrong notion in the mind of students about essay writing, etc. in English language. I wish that the students, both lower and higher education will find this book a necessary tools for construction of good essay writing in English language
