    "Avoid boring writing" / "Make it interesting: stories" [adding concrete details often livens up dry writing]
    "Be careful about context/mechanical errors that you have made unconsciously" [Yes!

Success in matters of grammar and spelling doesn't happen overnight: You'll probably make more errors as you learn new rhetorical habits. Also, rhetorical and mechanical success also doesn't happen passively: You have to set out to learn what you don't yet know.]
    "Go to Writing Center" [especially useful: help them help you by showing them old papers or, even better, your list of the habitual errors—gleaned from professors' comments on your papers—that you want to fix in your writing]
