Useful Academic Resources

Grammarly

If you take a course where you must write essays or even short research papers, this is a must-have. I, unfortunately, did not know to the degree that the premium version was better than the free version. It allows you not only to check misspelled words but also helps you rephrase sentences, fixes run-on penalties, and even gives you word suggestions. Even though it cost 11.66/month for an annual subscription, while you are in college, you should be able to purchase it for about $40 for the entire year. That is less than 25% of the cost for non-postsecondary students. There are other ways to get it even cheaper and sometimes even for free, but I will let you do your research on doing that; I cannot hand feed you every time.

Paul’s Online Math Notes

This is more tailored to any degree requiring advanced math levels like Calculus II, Differential Equations, or even Algebra. It does a great job explaining the different topics, but the most valuable parts are the examples that they walk you through step by step. Even though it does not contain any videos and is simply text, it is a great source to use if you enjoy procrastination—the reason why is that it prevents you from looking at other content to watch similarly to YouTube.

The Organic Chemistry Tutor

This is the OG for anyone who has ever procrastinated. If you must learn the material the day before the test, you will go to the YouTube channel. I enjoy this channel because he focuses on the application of the material more than the explanation of how the formula for equations was derived. The videos are also relatively short but cover a large amount of information in that time. He also does complex problems, which will prepare you for what you will see on the test. I believe that he covers a broad range of topics, so do not be off-put by the name and assume that he only covers chemistry.

One of the problems that I have always faced throughout high school and especially college was procrastination. This became an even bigger issue during the Covid-9 pandemic as classes moved online. Du
