Frequently Asked Questions

What is the alpha in Gurufi alpha?

Alpha means that Gurufi's platform focuses on editors. In the beta version, Gurufi aims to establish a broader platform for educators. For now, Gurufi in the alpha period will solely focus on editors to make ensure that editors and clients interactions are perfected before unveiling the Gurufi beta platform which is decidedly more sophisticated.

Isn't hiring an essay editor cheating?

At Gurufi, we believe that there is a significant educational merit in receiving individualized writing help from a professional. Similarly, we believe that an editor or reviewer is meant to reshape and polish a piece while preserving as much of the original as possible. In fact, an editor is encouraged to deny orders that would be considered "ghostwriting" if completed and subsequently submitted in the client's name, on the grounds that such actions are unethical.
