Question: Were you satisfied with your writing conference?

Yes, Each time I bring a paper to the Writing Center, I not only receive help on the current paper, I learn new things to use in future papers.

I was satisfied with my writing conference because the tutor was able to give me useful feedbacks despite the fact that my paper (one section from my thesis) was very technical. He helped me with many minor problems, which was something I needed help the most.

I was very satisfied with the conference. He read through my paper and gave me a lot of suggestions about rewording or adding more evidence for this paragraph, moving paragraphs around to help flow, and strengthening transitions. I think it made my paper a lot better; he was very understanding and explained the reasons for trying things when I didn't understand what was wrong.

Yes, he did a really great job of making suggestions and explained why really well. I could see clearly what I need to do.

Yes, very much so. I feel like I have a much better idea about how I want to organize my paper now….one of the better writing conferences I have had!

Yes, she was very helpful. She helped me consolidate my paper into one strong argument and provide continuous references to the thesis.

Yes, we had a lot to talk about and he helped me discover lots of answers form the text to support my essay. We worked together well and his energy was high. He pointed me in the right direction, and we completely change the direction of my paper (in a good way).

I was very satisfied with my tutor for all of her help, not only in simplifying and correcting my paper, but also with suggesting additions to strengthen my arguments.
