Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I discussed her 2,000 word research paper on food insecurity and its effects on the development and health of children and the elderly."
"This week, we finished the "why transferring" essay, cutting 200 words to bring it to the correct word count and altered the order."
"We used an outline to form he basis of both body paragraphs and introduction for a compare and contrast essay on health care."
