TOP REVIEWS FROM WRITING A PERSONAL ESSAY
Wow! This is truly helpful and insightful! I wanna write my own personal essay pretty soon.
This course is a great way to continue building writing skills.
Prof. Bloom is an excellent teacher. She is engaging, and her assignments are clearly explained and thoughtfully designed.
This was a really helpful course in giving me insight into the personal essay; however, I think that the ideas communicated in the lessons could be communicated in a more clear and abrupt manner.
