一对一的对话是奶牛的核心. We want to talk with you about your writing and speaking projects. In our current pandemic, we have had to make adjustments to this core service. Though we are now open to in-person consultations, we must keep at least 3ft. of distance and remain masked throughout the meeting. This means it may be helpful to bring more than one copy of your work in order to maintain a safe distance while reading together. 如果这阻碍了你的学习方式, online consultations are still available through the scheduling link. If you are working with an Academic Writing Course Assistant or a WhIMsie, they will arrange appropriate meeting times and spaces with you and are expected to follow the same safety guidelines.
