R. Doreen H.
Doreen takes her job very seriously. She is a very well-rounded tutor, the best one I have ever had. I needed to write an essay that was worth 50% of my grade and the instructor was a very hard grader so I asked Doreen for help. I sent her all the class notes, she read them all, and then I gave her a sloppy copy of my essay and she helped organize all my thoughts and helped me clean up my paper.
I ended up getting an 'A' on the essay and the instructor said he enjoyed reading it. Doreen is the best because she learned all my class materials and helped me organize it all into the essay. Doreen also helped teach me self-discipline and time-management, which she did not have to, but she cares. So, she is willing to go above and beyond to help anyone. She is great at what she does.
