First I'll say that grading essays is fairly arbitrary. I once

There's an old saying that goes 'one man's treasure is another
man's junk' and that applies to essays too. Some people think
Hemingway is an amazing writer and I don't. I dislike
Hemingway though I admire his sentence structure and his
ability to hold us spellbound with his sentences but I HATE
the way he treats women in his works. There is simple no
agreement as to what is good writing and there are so many
different ways to analyze a piece of literature and so many
different ways in which to write.
All that said, if you want to send your essay - preferably not
as an attachment but right in the body of an e-mail, you could
send it to this e-mail - [email protected] - and I'd try to
read it for you and give an opinion.
I think that's an active e-mail address though it's an old one
I don't use it often.
