children as the students themselves. BrainMass gives parents a way to send
instant academic relief. Those who use our service know that their children have
no comparable source of assistance on campus."

letters, lab reports and essays. Reviewers will examine submittals for syntax,
thesis cohesion, and flow; embedding comments directly in the essay documents.
