    What do you mean by writing faster, anyhow? The physical process? - copy something.
    Do you mean thinking faster about what to write?
    Practice writing essays? - you don't need a website for that. Think of a topic and write an essay about it in a set period of time.

    Believe it or not, spending a couple minutes up front organizing your thoughts and jotting down an outline of the points you want to cover will help you write faster.

    If you just jump in and start writing, you don't have direction and you don't know if you're covering the things you need to cover.

    If you know you need to write about three points, then divide your time into quarters and cover each point in one quarter, then use the remainder to do your intro/conclusion. (Actually, I think the intro and conclusion deserve their own segment of time each, but this will at least get your main points across.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
