What Students are Saying
“She is very good at explaining the challenges to overcome in my writing in such a way that I always come away from my appointments having learned something new and feeling confident because I know how to improve on my own time. She is very good at constructive criticism and I sincerely appreciate all her comments, as they have always been well-explained and useful.”
“He provided me with suggestions which will greatly improve my writing, and I felt heard. He was honest in his feedback, which I appreciated very much, especially given the importance of my writing and letters to gaining entrance to graduate school. He was patient, and thorough, and was able to provide suggestions and alternatives. I would recommend him to anyone who needs writing help.”
“I enjoyed how I was not made to feel incompetent, but rather we acknowledged my skills and respectfully mentioned my weaknesses.”
"The tutor understands very well my points and knows what the professor is looking for. Thank you for your help."
"Very friendly and helpful. Provided good feedback in a constructive way & made me feel comfortable."

"I am in my 4th year, and this was my first experience with the writing centre. I think it might have been easier for my university writing career if I had come in [to the centre] sooner."
