Specific ways the GWC was helpful

The tutor's insights into logical gaps and missing details in my paper were insightful and allowed me to make key revisions to this conference paper. She helped to ensure that the development of my ideas was clear and logical and helped me to articulate some key points to my argument. This conversation was all the more helpful as I feel not only the content of my paper but also the quality of my presentation will be greatly improved.

Getting feedback from the point of view of someone who is not an engineer. My tutor was able to catch things that I had not even thought of. Also, I appreciate the positive encouragement!

My tutor did a phenomenal job helping me identify the parts of my abstract that would be understandable to a non-science audience and those that needed more explanation or simplified language. She is patient, kind, and logical in the way she provides feedback. Thank you for your help!

The overall GWC experience

My tutor shared their own academic writing experiences...both the challenges we all encounter and strategies to move beyond the challenges. After the session I felt much more focused on the path forward to complete my assignment.

The most useful part of my session was experiencing first hand the unlimited potential of working with a skilled mentor like my tutor!
