Thank you so much for all your help the past few weeks. It was great to work on informative writing this time, and I feel like I improved a lot in this type of writing just in the past two weeks. I appreciate you for all your time and guidance to help me with this essay. Thank you again!

– Student A., Class of '25

All the projects we worked on together were student-oriented, with well-thought-out directives and a creative process that was naturally developed through Aaron's supportive guidance. All in all, I would be incredibly delighted to collaborate with him again.

– Student B., Class of '23

Working with Aaron was a great experience—he gave focused, hands-on advice during his meetings, and at the end of said meetings, always left me with something to keep in mind to improve my writing. Not to mention that he was always quick and willing to give feedback. Overall, I'd be more than happy to work with him again.

Aaron gave me helpful advice for my writing and was an encouraging presence the whole time.
