  • Course work in university can really get to you sometimes. I can recommend this website called Digitalessay.net. You can pick a writer there and ask them to edit or proofread your paper or even to write you a new one. I personally used it 4 times throughout my freshman year of university because I was so overwhelmed with being away from home. All four of those papers have received great grades and I have absolutely no regrets or complaints.
