Essay Expert Features
Essay Expert is an online writing service that provides professional writing to Canadian university students who need essay help. They offer academic writing, application services, and resume services. Their website features a list of the universities they have worked with. However, further investigation shows that they are not affiliated with any college or university.
To write this review, we placed an order for an essay, reviewed that essay when we received it, compared prices with other services, and explored the Essay Expert website. We also read other reviews online. So, is this the best writing service for Canadian students?
Quality of Support
We were surprised to see that they only offer phone and email support. Worse, they use an answering service for a significant portion of the day and evening. This, of course, means waiting and waiting for a response. On the other hand, the lack of online customer support shouldn’t have surprised us. This website appears to have been created in 1995, and not been upgraded since then. It’s really awful. They claim to have a brick and mortar location. Based on Google maps, that’s located in a very seedy, strip mall.
All About Prices
Prices start at 32 CAD per page. That’s about 24 USD as of this writing. That’s a bit on the high side, but not exorbitant. What is a bit ridiculous is a collection of ‘extras’ that you can purchase. One is a 35 CAD revision guarantee. We assume this means they don’t back up their promise of quality, professional writers. For an additional 20 CAD, you can ‘safeguard’ your essay for 5 years. We don’t even know what that means. Finally, for 10 CAD you can receive the sources they use to write your essays. This one really gave us pause. Why would a student need to pay 10 dollars for that, when that information should be easy to find in the citations that any decent writer would include?
Writer and Product Quality
To be quite honest, we weren’t hopeful. Our expectations were low, and the essay received was quite poor. While we don’t like to judge a book by its cover, poor website, customer support, and pricing does lead to poor quality writing. Our writer was obviously inexperienced and unable to write at a college level.
Services That Essay Expert Offers
We placed your order for an essay. Other options included research papers, term papers, reports, and all of the other standard academic writing options. They also offer application writing services and personal statements. Resume writing is also offered. We did not see any mention of copywriting services.
Discounts That Are Available
We did not find a discounts page. Nor did we see any options for inputting a discount code when we placed our order. They do appear to have a referral program. They also recruit college students to hang up posters at universities in Canada. We can only imagine that the latter does not go over very well with university officials.
Our overall ratings of Essay Expert is poor. Their issues include poor writing, overcharging for dubious services, limited customer support, and a very outdated website. We cannot recommend this service. Instead, we encourage students to continue looking for a writing service that will better meet their needs.
