  • Help identify strategies to help you with reading and writing that you can do on your own.
  • Do our best to clarify information so that it is easy for you to understand and implement.
  • Proofread or edit your assignment or "just check grammar."
  • Interpret text or suggest connections for you.
  • Provide a thesis, rearrange paragraphs, or otherwise do the work of interpretation or revision.

Craig Morgan Teicher

Well, I guess no one can have everything.
I must learn to celebrate when I fail.
Inner growth and fortitude follow the sting,
right? Won't I rise with holy wind in my sails?
Yet they always seem to get what I want,
door after door flung open. Why are
the keepers of doors, who haunt
the hopeful halls of fate and desire
so partial to them, but not to me?
Yes, I do feel sorry for myself—don't, brother,
pretend the bitter blanket of self-pity,
hasn't warmed your bones. It's not lovers
or fame I crave, nor even happiness, particularly.
Only to be lifted, just once, above all others.
