Dr. G was a joy to have as a teacher! I struggled with organizing my papers before, and his focus on structure and outlining is already helping my essay writing. I have a much better grasp on English grammar now as well. He’s a very goofy, accessible teacher, and I’d recommend him to anyone. He takes a different approach to teaching, but it works.

Dr. G. will teach you everything that you need for APA. He teaches skills that you may have forgotten, and makes you put those skills to use. He is an honest grader. There is no “A for effort” in his class. The grades come with detailed feedback. You will know exactly what was wrong, and how to fix it. I highly recommend this class.

He allows you to write about what is important to you, while asking you to write in very particular specifics that are highly condensed.
