Vanessa F.

1 essay lesson

However, he refused to give me any ideas or discuss the essay together. He said to me that he would only read and edit the essay after I finish. He keeps saying that this is ILLEGAL and UNETHICAL! But I told him that my school writing center tutors also do the same thing. But because of their schedule didn't work out for me, I'd rather look for a private tutor. He just told me that he would only do edit/correct grammar on my essay. That's fine.
Vadim T.

4 essay lessons

I realized that without Olya's support, my essay would be in bottom 5 % of med. school essays list. I decided to start over ;-( In real time, Olya and I were discussing and critically thinking over the main theme and ideas of my paper, so my essay was growing faster than I could imagine. My essay obtained the 1st person narrative form and initial stage of LIFE! My friends, my essay needs more life, so I will keep you updated soon.
Lyna V.

2 essay lessons

He addressed all of my worries. Mr Kevin is an incredibly knowledgeable and efficient tutor - he helped me transform my blunt, and disorganized essay into one that successfully describes the student in the best way possible! In a way, that I myself, ironically, couldn’t have. Not only did he give me substantial feedback on my essay, but he told me where to improve, and helped me refine the structure of my essay, making it flow much better than it use to.
