Student Feedback for Aatif

Aatif was incredibly knowledgeable about each topic and always provided great examples to help us with our own work. He also gives really helpful feedback. It had been a while since I took a writing class so I felt super rusty, but the class was so interesting and helpful that I kept coming back! Tricia Prestopino
