What We Do, What We Don’t Do
What We Do:
- We help students find a process or plan that suits them.
- We ask questions, listen, and help strategize.
- We create a positive culture of learning.
What We Don’t Do:
- We do not tell, fix, judge, or shame.
- We do not function as an editing service. We help students become better editors of their own work; we do not edit for them or promise that they will leave a one-hour session with an error-free paper.
- We do not conduct research; however, we can assist students to improve their research skills.
