Help with best way to conclude an essay?!


I have always had difficulty in what words to use for concluding an essay.

I often resort to 'In conclusion, it can be seen that...'

What other ways are there to effectively conclude an essay?

Pls help!! :-)

I have rarely used "in conclusion" when writing a conclusion.  If the rest of the sentence or paragraph has all the appropriate information and does indeed summarize the points of the essay, it just seems redundant to me.  When you write the introduction paragraph to your essay, do you start with, "As an introduction...." ?  No, you just introduce the topic.  So why not just conclude it?  There is no reason to announce, "I'm concluding the essay now!"  Make sure you are actually summarizing or drawing a conclusion from the previous facts presented.
