    Especially for connectives, I use the words 'however' and 'therefore' too often. Any others words that can be used instead? Thanks

    I normally use 'at the same time' too much in essays instead of however.

    You could use: hence, furthermore, moreover, in, within, amid, with, through, additionally, in addition - there are loads that you can use!
    However, don't over convolute your writing with fancy connectives. Sometimes just saying 'the' or 'this' is more effective.

    The answers above are great, just make sure that you don't go overboard with synonyms because sometimes the words don't have the exact same meaning

    You mean connectives, yes?

    Conversely; having said that; consequently; however; nevertheless; thus; furthermore; hence.

    Also, try to make successful use of semi-colons. They can greatly improve the flow of your essays, especially if you are making a complex argument.
