Our software wasn't created by VCs looking to go viral, or computer programmers playing behind their screens, or by those looking to make money off of students and their parents. Our software was created by professors who really want to help students and educators be successful in their writing goals. So we sat down with cofounder and current EssayJack CEO, Dr. Lindy Ledohowski, a former English teacher and professor to ask what she wishes more students knew about essay writing.

“Sub” is a Latin prefix meaning “beneath.” A subordinate is an individual who is lower in rank than someone else. A subway is a transport system that’s underground. A submarine travels below the surface of the water. A subcompact is a car that is even smaller than a compact car. You get the idea.

Have you just been asked to write an expository essay? Don’t be intimidated! The name comes from the same root as “exposure,” and it’s just a fancy label that means you’ve been asked to explain something. In fact, whether you’ve been asked to write an academic essay or prepare a persuasive speech, they both involve the same procedure. Basically, you’re writing about a theme or topic, choosing your main take or angle on it, analysing evidence, and then explaining it. And the easiest way to practice is by writing a five-paragraph essay.

Have you ever been asked to write a narrative essay? It’s essentially a story, usually told about something that you did or that happened to you. However it differs from a regular story because you include information on how the events influenced you – how they changed you in some way. You might underestimate the importance of a narrative essay because it isn’t the most common type of essay assigned to students. But most college admissions essays are narratives, and think about how much difference those can make in a person’s life!
