  1. Hello Mike,

    I have emailed you an essay last week Friday. I was just wondering if you have received it?

    Thank you.

    • Hi, I always return tasks within 24 hours. I emailed it on Friday and I just forwarded it again.
      Please let me know if yo uhave still not received it.

  2. Hi Mike, 🙂 Why some essays make clear what are the point of view/solution (e.g This essay believes that the government should…) and others just mention what kind of essay it is (e.g This essay will explain why the advantages and disadvantages). Which one of them is better?

  3. Dear Mike,

    I am interested in purchasing the bundle of 10 writing tasks, but because my self-study time is limited, so I am not going to send 10 of them at once for marking. Instead, I may send 1 task every 2 or 3 days . Would that be fine for you?
    Looking forward to your reply.


  4. And I have one simple question for you. After a month I should take the test and I think my time is not good enough for being good writer so if I remember templates can I get a good score in a short amount of time ?

    • Yes, templates can quickly boost your score and get you on the right track. Try to be flexible with the way you sue them.
      Slight changes might be needed depending on the precise task instructions you are given

  7. Hi Mike
    Is it possible to get my essays checked earlier than 24 hours? Actually, I am planning to buy $30 package of 4 essays. But my exam is on next week so I am thinking what to do?

    • 24 hours is the maximum, if you send me your tasks marked urgent I will try to do them within a few hours; my timezone is GMT+7 and I don’t work when sleeping.

  8. Hello sir, I’m really interested in your service!! Before I make a payment could you please give a brief comment on my essay below? Thank you so much!

    【【【We are becoming increasingly dependent on computers. They are used in businesses, hospitals, crime detection and even to fly planes. What things will they be used for in the future? Is this dependence on computers a good thing or should we he more auspicious of their benefits?】】】

    Computers have been widely used in many different areas. While we benefit from the convenience they brought us and actively seek for other ways computer programmes may help us in the future, the possible disadvantages of our growing dependence on them should not be ignored.

    It is conceivable that computers will become involved in more occupations. In the legal sector, for instance, routine jobs such as contract drafting can be computer-aided. Programmes are able to generate legal documents much faster than people do, as they can apply templates and search for appropriate legal references from the database or the internet within seconds. In addition, computer-controlled systems may be commonly applied to motor vehicles, such as cars, buses and trains. This does not only save your time for travelling as computer-controlled cars will follow the quickest route without misreading the GPS map and losing its direction, but also prevents accidents caused by driving under the influence of alcohol or fatigue.

    We definitely expect computers to further benefit our lives, but the risks of our increasing reliance on computers are alarming. We all have had the experience of programme crashing when documents had not been saved. This may evolve into a more serious problem when crucial missions are handed to them. Imagine an unmanned bus driven by a computer goes out of control due to an unexpected error occurring in the system, an unavoidable car crash will take away many people’s lives because computers are unable to handle unpredicted events. Whereas a driver, in this situation, might be able to quickly come up with a strategy based on his or her driving experience, thus minimizes the damage.

    Computers have offered us a myriad of benefits. However, it is important that we find the right balance as to how much they should intervene human lives. People should stay conscious and take the worst scenario into consideration before we become further dependent on computers.

  9. Hi Mike,
    I’m Annie. Could you tell me the phrase “live on their own” means someone chooses to not marry and live alone or it means people who just care about their own families (selfish) and do not care and help others in society.

  10. Hello Mike,

    I have written my essay on a piece of paper, can I send the pictures of it as an attachment in an email or directly on Skype? I also want a feedback on my writing as it is not very good.

    Thank You!

  11. Thank you for sharing sample essays corrected here. I think it is the best way to improve our writing skill by looking through mistakes made by other students and trying not to make the same mistake.
