How to avoid repetition?

What is the best way to restate and bring topics back to the thesis in the body and conclusion paragraphs without sounding repetitive throughout your essay?

Think of your thesis statement as the overarching idea and then each paragraph is a subtopic of that main idea. All paragraphs should back up the thesis, but should cover different aspects of the passage. Does that make sense?
