TailoredEssays.com has been in business since 2003, according to its website. During these 15 years, it has continued to offer academic writing services to students. To provide this TailoredEssays review, we carefully studied the entire website, read some of the sample essays, looked at testimonials, interacted with customer service, reviewed pricing and benefits, and ordered an essay ourselves. What follows is a summary of what we found.
Products and services offered by Tailored Essays are very limited. Customers have three choices – essay writing, essay editing, or PowerPoint presentations. And the company only offers these to high school and undergraduate students.
Quality of Products/Writers
To evaluate the quality of TailoredEssays essays, we offer the following:
- The sample essays on the website are filled with grammatical errors, such as ad verb tense and mis-use of article adjectives. This is indicative of ESL writers.
- Customer reviews we found on the web and comments that have been submitted to us are often negative. Complaints are primarily of poor writing and outdated resources
- The essay we received was delivered on time but also contained a number of composition errors. Further, we could not find a thesis statement.
Certainly, we can say that Tailored Essays is not a fraud or scam. But quality of products is not what it should be. We were unable to find a BBB membership either. For an American company, this is cause for concern.
Prices and Payment Options
To get a price, a customer must first enter his information in the order form. It appears that pricing begins at $14.45/page for an essay with a 5-day deadline. Our 8-page paper was priced at $111.60. There is no pricing differentiation between the two academic levels. It looks as if TailoredEssay.com prices run about average for the industry.
Customers can use any major credit card or PayPal to pay for their products, and payment methods are secure.
Customers will not find any coupon codes for discounts. We checked with customer support on this and were told that sometimes they do run special pricing offers and post a promo code on the site during these times. Anyone using this service should not count on receiving any price breaks.
The company provides free pages that are standard with most writing services – title, bibliography, and table of contents. They also promise free revisions and no plagiarism. They state products are delivered by email, but ours was uploaded to an account page we were given when we placed our order.
Customer service is friendly, and they can be reached by phone or email. There is no live chat feature.
We have very mixed feelings about this company. Because of the limited products and services, we would expect that they would deliver premier quality in just those areas. But this is not the case. A we look at pros & cons, there is very little to praise other than decent pricing and on-time delivery. The most important factor, high quality writing, is just not there. We do not recommend this service and have given it a rating of “Fair to Poor.”
