What We Do, What We Don’t Do

What We Do:

  1. We help students find a process or plan that suits them.
  2. We ask questions, listen, and help strategize.
  3. We create a positive culture of learning.
  4. We recognize that the struggle to translate thoughts and feelings into words is universal.

What We Don’t Do:

  1. We do not tell, fix, judge, or shame.
  2. We do not function as an editing service. That means we will not go through your paper line by line and correct mistakes.
  3. We do not conduct research; however, we can assist students to improve their research skills.
