The Coaching Session at a Glance

We believe we will better assist you as "coaches" than as proofreaders or editors of your work. In your session, a coach will:

  • Ask questions about the assignment and your paper.
  • Read your paper.
  • Comment on global issues (focus, development, organization, logic, clarity).
  • Help you determine where you might tighten and polish your prose.
  • Discuss documentation and citation conventions.
  • Point out patterns of mechanical and grammatical problems and provide suggestions on how you can learn to recognize and correct them.
