Sidewalk Babble

Meandering through the urban maze



Never in my life have I had a teacher so dedicated to nurturing my growth in both the academic and the personal sense as Naomi has been. My successes in university-level English would not have been possible without her help and support. The time that we spent together improved my skills to a level that I would never have dreamt possible. Naomi also provided me with extremely valuable support on my medical school applications and preparing for interviews. I honestly don’t know where I would be now without having had the benefit of her help. I value the discussions we’ve had on various topics throughout our time together and feel lucky to have had the advantage of her wisdom and thoughts. Despite her not having a background in medicine, her conversations with me about healthcare and medical practice have provided me with common sense and perspective that I will take with me to medical school and onwards throughout my life as a physician.

Naomi has helped me tremendously throughout our lessons together. I have been learning writing style, grammar, reading comprehension, etc. since December 2014. Naomi is a wonderful teacher with a great sense of humour. Instead of editing my work alone, she guides me to reconstruct awkward sentences myself. My writing has improved a lot throughout the years, and I am very grateful for her help. She is very knowledgeable and can make essays flow much better just with simple changes to structure and phrasing. Thank you so much!
