Student Testimonials

"The introduction of the concepts of critical reading and writing in such a different setting was the most valuable.  I mean, we all know what those words mean, but do we really know what they actually mean?  I think that was the key to the entire presentation."

"The instructor provided plenty of helpful tips that I am going to try over the course of this semester and feel will help me over the next four years. he gave me confidence."

"I sat in on this class [workshop] last night and enjoyed it so much. I think everyone could benefit from hearing the content of this class. Thank you so much for making this available..."

"This service is really great. I am benefitting greatly from the help, especially in calculus now!"

"This was a GREAT intro course to critical thinking.  The material has helped me see the world in a different way, particularly during the presidential campaign season.  I would like to learn more, and look forward to building my critical thinking skills over my time here. Thank you!"
