Does this work? Yes! The first tutorial on INK (Write your SoP for grad school) was viewed thousands of times and received 20 requests for expert feedback (that's $400) in less than a month. Here's what people thought:

I really like the idea of creating the tasks myself. It gives me a sense of control over the work that I would be potentially doing in the future. […] I know what I'm getting into.
- Tutorial creator
I really enjoy the creative freedom of creating the tutorials; […] I can rely on resources that I know of and my own experience to create a new thing that might actually help someone out there.
- Tutorial creator
The facilitation was efficient and fast; I was assigned to an editor and she was working on my SOP within 24 hours. The feedback was great. The editor was encouraging, polite, and personable. The payment was fair and the payment process was easy. Similar services charge an unbelievable rate in comparison. I would highly, highly recommend this service.
- User
It was very helpful. Before that, I believed that my SoP doesn't need too much edit. But, after being edited, I understood that I was wrong. It made my SoP more attractive.
