"Not only did I get a sense of how I can write more effectively, but also gained a better understanding of how to optimize my thinking process for different writing tasks."

"This was one of the best hours spent of my academic career. I have always been insecure about my writing skills, but while working with my tutor, I got very precise and effective feedback. My consultant had already looked at the document I uploaded, had very specific queries as we started the session, and then addressed them with very specific answers."
