    I think your teacher is trying to get you to be more articulate and use more “flowery” words instead of is…is…is.There really exists (instead of “is’) no formula or word to replace “is” in every situation…it depends on the context of the sentence. In your examples: 1. A soliloquy allows(?) a person to reveal their inner-most thoughts. 2. Introducing a soliloquy into a play, reflects the person’s thoughts at the moment.You just need to play around with the words and see how else the sentence can be structured. Sometimes you might need to re-arrange the entire sentence (as in the above examples) but it usually ends up sounding better than just using “is” over and over. a little practice and you’ll get it.(Look ma! No “is” in that whole answer. Isn’t that great…ohhh shooot)
