Daniel Johnston is teaching and getting to know specialist with the Libraries. He said there are some subjects that come up often at some point of research consultations he has with students.
“Students will frequently worry that their thesis statement isn’t always clear, or isn’t always supported all through the body of their paper,” stated Johnston. “Some will are available in only for short grammar assessments, and others need to make certain the shape and go with the flow in their papers are coherent and readable.”
Sound like an issue you’re having? The group hosting Write-In can take care of these topics and more. The TLU crew is dedicated to pupil-centered learning; they trust there’s no one approach for addressing each scholar’s needs.
