Any word processor should do. Do you have any specific requirements (like equations)?

Like I said, for a basic essay, any word processor would do. The three "major" ones available to Mac users would be Word, Pages and LibreOffice's word processor. If you're worried about compatibility with those who use Office in any way, Word would be your safest bet.

Assuming you don't have Microsoft Office for Mac (which is probably what you're accustomed to on a Windows machine), there are lots of great alternatives to Word. A few free ones include Bean, LibreOffice and NeoOffice. Any one of the three of them should be relatively familiar for a person coming from Microsoft Office/Word.

And of course, TextEdit, which is already on your Mac, is a capable (if not elaborate) word processor in and of itself.
