  • I was writing a research paper on impeached presidents for an incredibly nitpicky teacher. He had me do some crazy corrections on it and I just couldn’t figure out what he wanted from me. I turned to the interwebs and actually found out that had writers that would go through my paper and edit my writing for me. Super handy website and I really recommend it.
