Dear Professor Monkey,
In your email, you state that I copied my work from that website but I swear I did not see that website before. I went back over my paper and it does reflect some of the course stuff, just maybe not all. I was hoping you could call me to talk this over. Can you be more specific about how you found this plagiarism? Also about the facts I used from the assigned reading I did display this in some of my paper. Can you give me partial credit. I can withdraw from your course or enroll in another university if you don't get it.

For now, I'd prefer we keep this via email. Let me provide you with a few examples of how identical your paper was to the website I noted in my email. [my verbatim examples redacted, but they were perfect matches]. As you see, your paper is far too similar to these sites for me to give you credit for having done your own work.

It seems like a lot of energy to transfer to another school when I am here, reaching out to you about developing your writing skills. No matter where you get your education, your future employers will expect a college graduate to be able to do her own work and communicate clearly. Running away never solves our problems, but it often makes the situation worse.
(You'll leave if I don't get it? Oh, I get it. Dick.)
