  • I’ve only tried one essay service but I can tell you that the website I used was really solid. It’s called Digitalessay.net. Basically you get to pick a writer and you can communicate with them through an internal chat system which makes explaining how to do specific assignments a lot easier (especially if your teacher is a hard-ass like mine was.) Good luck with your paper!
