"Wow, great job!" Natalie's teacher wrote her.
"Nice improvement on your in-text citations and references done in APA format.
Nice job paraphrasing!
Only a 13% similarity report."
(Down from 30% before I helped Natalie.)
"...nice job answering the prompt, as well.
Thoughtful, well-rounded responses to the questions.
Truly a very nice paper."
Natalie told me:
"The last paper you helped me with
raised my grade from a low C to a B in the class.
Thank you so much! "
Natalie earned a grade of 98% on that paper,
it was on the audiobook boom.
