Here’s a quick tip that will greatly strengthen your writing: use the active voice whenever possible. When using active voice, the subject performs the action noted by the main verb. With the passive voice the subject is acted upon. Here are two examples for each.
In the passive voice, the home visit appears to be the subject of the sentence when in fact it is a direct object. Similarly in the second example. Both sentences are weakened in their affect by improper wording.
The active voice makes clear that “you” the reader (or some entity) will schedule a home visit. Both the first and second examples make the subject and direct object clear—which make them easier to read and understand.
