There are a variety of different tools and resources available now that can help students write essays. Today we are going to check out essay rewriters, a type of tool that can rewrite whatever text you feed to it in different ways.

 They are capable of changing the tone, readability, and style of the content.  In this article, we will check out five such tools and see how they might be helpful for students to rewrite essays.

5 Tools for Essay Rewriting

Free tools are important because students do not have access to vast funds that they can use to buy premiums. Many free tools out there provide great functionality, and we are going to discuss five of them.

1. EditPad

Editpad offers a free tool for rewriting essays. Its essay rewriter comes with three rewriting modes called:

  • Simple
  • Advanced
  • Creative

There is not much difference between the three modes. But if you must know, then here they are. Simple just changes words with synonyms. Advanced does the same but with different words instead. Creative changes phrases too, but with an additional focus on readability.

Add on some quality-of-life features such as file uploading/downloading, and an integrated summarizer/plagiarism checker and that makes Editpad’s rewriting tool a great essay rewriter.

Students can use it to improve the flow of their essays. If they have trouble writing in a smooth manner, then Creative mode will take care of that in just a second. But it won’t magically turn a bad essay into a great one. The foundations need to be solid for this tool to work.

2. SmartSEOtools

The Rewriter by SmartSEOtools is a really basic tool that can help students rewrite essays quickly and efficiently. It does not have any modes, nor does it offer any QoL features. All you get is a text box where you copy-paste your essay and then hit rewrite.

The page will refresh, and your text will be rewritten. But good luck trying to find out exactly what has changed because the tool does not show you in any way (i.e. changing the colour of the text or boldening it).

But with that said, its results are stellar. The output is more engaging than the input. It uses wording and phrasing to make even the mundanity of information appear attractive. Students can use this function to greatly impress their teachers and showboat some great English writers.

3. Article Rewriter

Article Rewriter is a freemium tool that has a multitude of rewriting tools but only two are free. They are called:

  • Word Changer
  • Sentence Rephraser

Pretty self-explanatory names. But if you still have some doubts then Sentence Rephraser changes phrases as opposed to single words. This tool lets people rewrite 1,000 words per session which is more than enough for a student essay.

Other QoL features include showing you the changes in orange-coloured words. It also lets you download the results as a text file. The presence of an integrated summarizer, paraphraser, plagiarism checker, and grammar checker greatly increases the use of this tool. So, students might want to check them out too. Who knows these features could be the difference between a good essay and a bad one.

4. Simplified

Simplified is an AI content generator that also has article rewriting as one of its features. It is free to use, but unlike all other tools on this list, you need to create an account to use it first.

To use the rewriting features all you need to do is open a document and click the “open editor” button on the top right. This will skip the content generation part and take you to an empty document.

Here students can input their essay and select it. Once selected, click on “improve” to prompt the tool to rewrite your essay.

The good thing is that students can choose the tone of the write-up. So, they can come off as professional, informative, informal, or upbeat. The output can be downloaded, and the formatting of the input is also maintained.

5. Rytr

Rytr is the final tool for rewriting essays in our list, but it is by no means the least. This tool may have no modes, but it has the most potential for customization.

You see when you rewrite your essay with it, it marks each word it changes with a different color. Then you can click on these words and replace them with other synonyms if you don’t like them.

That does not mean it is a slouch at doing its job. In fact, you will rarely have to edit the results in this way. It has by far the highest word count of all the tools in this list (2,000 words).

So students will find this tool immensely helpful for rewriting their essays to improve their quality and readability.


These five free tools can help students rewrite their essays quickly and efficiently. They can help students improve their essay write-ups by enhancing their vocabulary and readability. As a result, students can score higher and attain better grades.

So, don’t shy away from these tools and use them for your benefit.
