Would you please give me some advice?  

A lot of times when I am trying to create a circle, no matter what I do, it ends up looking like a 3rd grader did it.  As you will see the spiral at the bottom of the first S, I just cannot get it to look any better than that!  No matter what I do to make it look better, it ends up looking worse than this!  

Could you please share some suggestions?

Thank you!

Welcome to the forum @Wilson Tarbuckles

It looks like you have sharp nodes set and you need to use smooth nodes and adjust the handles carefully.

Instead of trying to create a circle yourself, let the app do it for you! Use the Ellipse Tool to create it at the desired position and size, and use the ‘Add’ command to connect it to the tail end of the S.
