Avoid unnecessary passive voice.
Don’t use long sentences.
Do not use words that end in “tion” or “sion” when you can use the active verb. For example, don’t use “explanation” in a sentence when you can use “explain.”
Do not use “of” to indicate possession. For example, don’t say “the desire of most students” when you can say “most students desire.”
Avoid using words that end in “ment,” followed by “of.” For example, use “developing a strategic plan requires thoughtful analysis,” NOT “The development of a strategic plan requires thoughtful analysis.
Avoid unnecessary adverbs.
