Writing Utility for Teens Launches in Time for Thanksgiving
November 24, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education NewsSolutions for most, if not all, writing problems that teens face are a click away at HelpWithYourEssay.com. Featuring interactive tutorials and a writing contest where teens can win iPhones and savvy school supplies, the site is bound to get book-marked as it makes its way through the social networks.
“I’m happy that I finally have something to help me write my essays,” says Nate, 15, of Sherman Oaks, CA. “My parents don’t want to pay for tutors. They want me to learn from class and the internet. Now I have something free and really useful.”
The site provides step-by-step interactive guidance for the skill of writing that all American high-school and college students must learn. Teens can produce a thesis statement, outline and rough draft, all emailed to them automatically. They can find tools to overcome writer’s block, and they can polish their style with tutorials about transitions and using the active voice. And, of course, there are prizes to be won for good writing.
“I’m looking forward to seeing the results of the writing contest,” says Linda, 16, with a smile. “Even if I don’t win, I’ll see what the winners did to win when I get the newsletter, and then next time I’ll try again.”
Teachers will find HelpWithYourEssay.com an indispensable tool for their student writers. Parents will enjoy the extra money they save from extensive tutoring. And students will delight in the ease and convenience of a utility that gently guides them through the otherwise daunting writing process.
It’s about time online education went interactive en masse.
