Student feedback

“Aline was really wonderful to have as a supervisor for LCL. She gave very clear structured feedback on our work through specific comments on paragraphs as well as a general review at the end, which I found very helpful. She also always made sure we understood key concepts in the course and went through them carefully with us when we were unsure about any aspects.”

“Aline was my supervisor for LCL last year and I must say she was excellent, and one of my best supervisors. Aline always provided detailed PowerPoints and feedback discussing essay content, structure and style and also offered great tips and exercises on how to improve our academic writing style and also prepare for examinations throughout the year. For example, in one extra task, I was asked to focus on improving one paragraph in a former essay using the four-point structure and this was very helpful in showing how, with a little bit more thought and in a short space of time, I could make my points much more concise, clear and academic-sounding and, through the process, also clarify and condense my knowledge, which was a useful tool for exam revision.

Not only did Aline help improve my work throughout the year and sufficiently prepare me for exams at the end of the year, but, from the start, Aline was a very warm, friendly and approachable supervisor, answering questions via email whenever I needed and also providing eatable treats at Christmas and other seasonal sessions, which really added to the enjoyment and productivity of the supervisions, as I felt welcomed, comfortable and able to talk to Aline freely with any queries I had.”
