"Maud is amazing. When I started sessions with Maud I was a C level student with some good ideas and when I finished with her I received an A in my English Lit A Level exam. She really pushes you for the most advanced and nuanced arguments and helps you think deeply about the text you're studying, as well as transforming my approach to essay technique. Simply put, after Maud's sessions I felt I had the tools to turn in an excellent essay no matter the subject, and was confident both in my form and in the substance of my argument."
