Quotes:
“It used to be that 100 essays made for one crazy day in the online essay center. Now, reviewing 1,000-1,500 essays daily is the norm,” said Dr. Allyson Fetterhoff, SMARTHINKING writing director. “The most rewarding part of reaching the 1 millionth essay mark is knowing that our tutors have helped students develop better essays and become better writers with expanded understanding of the writing process overall.”

“At the end of each day, I feel like I have helped students to better understand writing traits that they can apply to almost any writing task,” said one SMARTHINKING tutor. “Because we are not grading the students' work and because we make students do the heavy lifting, we tutors are in a unique position to motivate students in an intrinsic and personal way.”

“We are gratified to see the online writing lab review its millionth essay,” said SMARTHINKING CEO Burck Smith. “As SMARTHINKING moves forward, we hope students continue to take advantage of the opportunities and resources we are able to provide.”
