  • Some of these essay writing guides can be very helpful, but I don't think you should support and promote services that sell essays (written by others) to students, who then turn them in as their own work. That's just wrong, on many levels. Check out HelpWriting.net for loads of helpful tips, advice and instruction to help students write their own standout essays!
