I'm a college writing professor, and as soon as I started watching this I decided that I want to know this guy. And then he made a Star Trek reference, and I wanted to marry him a little.

Why is it that we don't have the follow up? "How to Write an Effective Essay: The Body"? Your 'How to write an effective essay" has a bad sound recording and you go too fast on the body. PLZZZZZZZ

Everyone if you have an essay due and you don't wanna do it (and you know you don't want any essay), hit up Killer Papers. I found them on Instagram, @killerpapers. If you click the link in their bio, it sells one page for 25$ each. They have a whole team, so they can write about literally anything. And the best part is, they're plagiarism free! I swear I'm not their agent.

Do you have any videos on how to write a Self-Evaluation Paper (Essay)? I have to review my own speech, on video, and then write about it. I am old, I have never done any of this before and being out of school for 38 years, I am not sure what to do or how to do it. I have no guidance from my instructor and their is nothing on this in my textbook. Also, where is your conclusion video?Thank you.

Guys, don't start with the introduction at all. Instead, go straight to your first body paragraph, and then after you have wrote all your body paragraphs write the introduction. How the hell are you going to introduce an essay you have not wrote yet?
