Title pages may seem inconsequential. In fact, the are a very important aspect to any essay. The title page is the first thing your teacher will see; thus, they start your essay on a very good---or very bad---note. To avoid a bad first impression, follow any specific guidelines your teacher gave regarding the title page. It should be neat and use the same font as the rest of the paper, although you should use a larger font size so that the title page is easy to read.

Start your first line slightly to the right of the left margin on the page. Write the essay's title and your name immediately underneath the title.

Type the project's submission date. Each category of information should line up perfectly with the line above it. Include the teacher's name, the class and the class time or period, making sure you write each on a separate line.

Double check the title page for errors and to ensure you followed any additional guidelines or requirements your teacher gave when assigning the essay.
