There are many tools available online which provide essay help, but these are the top tools to share with students so their next essay assignment is not filled with dread (or errors).

1.     Citation Generator

4. Easy Word Counter

It is common for essay assignments to include a word count to insure students put the proper amount of time and effort into the assignment.  However, many students may write their papers on devices that may not have Microsoft Word, which means it can be hard to monitor the document’s word count. Thankfully, Easy Word Counter is an easy-to-use and free online tool.
