My english teacher said writing to persuade is the easiest one to do (out of argue, persuade and advise) so she is giving my class a essay to practice on and I am struggling to do so!

Got any tips how to write to persuade?

anecdotes
quotes

Basically write as if you are obama, use colons and ellipses and do things in threes. (as well as add an extra 'and'- making sure it sounds as if its meant to be there, and not just a mistake.)
Powerful imagery, oh and some useful phrases:
-......not to mention....
-......I'm sure you'll agree....
-......any reasonable person would agree....
