  • My experience with essay services has generally been very positive. I requested a writer from HelpWriting.net to write my English essay on Jane Eyre because I was really short on time (that week my family had to move houses unexpectedly and I had no time whatsoever to sit down at a computer and do work.) Needless to say the services were good and my essay was done really quickly. The writer that I picked followed directions well. Of course, if you can do it yourself, then do so but if it’s an end-all-be-all situation I definitely recommend HelpWriting.net
