EssayJack is an online platform that helps students with English for Academic Purposes writing, and our website proudly claims that ours is a company For Students, By Professors, but what does that really mean and why should you care?
Writing essays for school, college, and university can be daunting. In many ways the genre of the essay is slightly out dated in our world of blogs, texts, tweets, insta posts, and microblogging. Because we are less and less familiar with writing essays these days, they are often something we only do in the context of school. As a result, writing essays feels a bit weird. Add to that the fact that most teachers and professors out there may have first learned how to write essays either by hand or on old word processing software, whereas students these days have often learned not to write or type, but to text with their thumbs! So the technology is moving in one direction, but schools, colleges, universities, and testing boards still expect students to display mastery over essays - be they short exam essays or long graduate theses - and so if you have an essay to write, what should you do first?
Our cofounders were recently in Singapore, and they were featured on the Asia Tech Podcast talking about not only EssayJack as an English for Academic Purposes solution that can help students and educators the world over when it comes to teaching and learning EAP, but also what it takes to start a business.
As a result of this podcast, we were nominated for a Best Startup in Asia Award! You can vote for us here: http://www.pitchdeck.asia/voting. Please take a moment and do so. Every vote matters.
