What does my compare and contrast essay require?
An introduction paragraph that:
Introduces the subject – book, author, protagonist
Introduces the thesis – what are you going to prove
A road map – a list of topics that you will use to prove your thesis (body paragraphs)
A transition to the first body paragraph (#1 of your road map topics)
A series of body paragraphs that prove your thesis
Topic sentence for each paragraph
Ideas (opinions) and details (evidence) from the text about the protagonist
Ideas (opinions) and details (evidence) from your memory about you
Each body paragraph should have a minimum of three supporting ideas and details (for both the protagonist and you) to support the topic sentence and the thesis.
Use citations for all paraphrasing and direct quotations.
Paraphrasing – putting someone elses ideas into your own words
Direct quotations – when you use the exact words from a text; these quotations must have and around them
Citations include the last name of the author, a comma, and the page number surrounded by brackets (McKay, 57)
Place the sentences punctuation after the bracket unless the question mark or exclamation mark belongs to the quotation

Jacob questioned if maybe there they could rest? (McKay, 78) when he heard that a village was nearby.
You will be using your source for each point in each paragraph, and so there will be a minimum of three citations (3 sources of evidence) per body paragraph.
Transition sentences between body paragraphs
These should smoothly segue between the paragraphs by summing up the paragraph you are leaving and foreshadowing the topic of the next paragraph.
A conclusion paragraph
Restate the thesis as completed
Summarize the topic sentences and evidence to show you have proven your thesis
Finish with a final thought about your subject and the thesis

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
