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'

Precious Nwachukwu GLC ex-student

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!

Muonagor Angel GLC ex-student

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.
