UWO Grad Student Assisting with Essay Writing Skills at all Academic Levels

It is my preference to use essay outlines when starting a paper as they help you structure your ideas. I can help you with the formation of a helpful essay outline at the beginning of a project if this is a concern. I also believe that feedback is what helps essay writers improve and because of this I will provide you with detailed verbal and written feedback to refer to when revising.
