When I tell people about the services I provide for students, I am often asked: “Do you write papers and essays for students?” My short answer is: no. In order to breach those misconceptions about my business and its values, I decided to provide in depth reasons why I don’t provide this service. Overall, my reasoning for this firm response is to encourage you to be the writer and to earn the results you achieve!
When I tell students about my editing services, a common response I receive is something to the effect of: “I never have time to get my work edited. I always do my assignment at the last minute.” The problem with this common mentality is that it’s common. The last minute scramble is often reflected in the end result. TAs and professors can tell when something is done last minute. Academic success is not always about getting something done, it’s about getting it done well. However, academic success is also dependent upon so many factors. You have your class schedule, assignment deadlines, readings (yes, you should do your readings), exam schedule, and a personal life to maintain. It may seem as though one of those pieces has to fall back. Maybe you decide that you’re going to fall behind on your readings just so that you can stay on track with your assignments. But it doesn’t have to be that way. It is possible to keep it all together and on time. And I’m here to help you do just that. Enter the course organizing tool!
Microsoft Word has a function called Track Changes that is helpful for collaborative projects and editing. I use it often for both writing and editing projects with my clients. I find it makes our work together a lot more engaging. If a client has a question or wishes to suggest changes on a document, then that can be done through using Track Changes. While I’ve been using it for many years within different contexts, I know that there are some people who are unfamiliar with using this function. However, that should not stop them from being a part of the collaborative experience that Track Changes yields. Here are step by step instructions for using three major features of Track Changes: 1) reviewing Track Changes, 2) inserting Track Changes, and 3) Comments.
