Earlier this year I shared Academic Help, a website that gives students and teachers access to free writing guides. The site has been completely redesigned making it simple to search for exactly what you need. On the homepage you’ll easily be able to click on keywords like bibliography, admission essay, or job application letter. Kids can scan the different choices at the top of the screen or dive into one of the main categories Guides, Samples, or Expert Help.
One new feature that Academic Help has launched is free paper editing by their experts. Anyone can submit a piece of writing – business proposal, scholarship essay – and receive feedback from experts in the field. If you or your students don’t have a finished piece of writing to share users can also ask questions. They can post a question and receive an answer, then check out the responses to other students questions.
Academic Help is a great web tool that can be accessed on any device with an Internet browser. It provides individualized help to teachers and students in addition to great resources and guides for writers of any age.
Visit their website to learn more – and start asking your own questions!
