Natalie Nelson, Academic Skills Instructor
B.A., Sociology, Trent University
M.Ed., Trent University
My role, in a nutshell
To support students with building their academic skills to become better writers and learners.
The question I get asked the most at work
Can you proofread my paper? While I am happy to provide instruction in grammar, organization, and other writing skills, nobody learns from watching someone proofread their work. Academic Skills is a teaching service, and I can help you build editing skills, organize arguments, and develop your analysis.
What I enjoy about my role at Trent University
The best thing about my role is that I get to meet with students and watch them build their academic skills and confidence as writers and learners. I also enjoy seeing students from a variety of disciplines and programs; I learn something new from each interaction!
Hobbies or special interests
I love yoga, reading, and ice cream sandwiches.
