I would like to put in writing how helpful and incredible Tanya Pretorius has been during the preparation and completion of my PhD proposal. She has taken hours to help me familiarise myself with the online database and referencing programme Mendeley. She held lengthy zoom sessions where she worked with me on my proposal to ensure I had the skill to work the programme and could implement it into the proposal. What I have learned from her is the knowledge that will help me in the future of writing and publishing of articles.
She was incredibly helpful and edited the proposal with tips and suggestions as well as checking my whole database on Mendeley. I felt quite anxious about the bibliography and making sure it was correct and she worked systematically and thoroughly with me and taught me the skills I required.
Her effort, passion and care during the completion of my proposal have been greatly appreciated and I just wanted to put it onto writing as a form of acknowledgement of her incredible work and help during this time.
I am truly grateful for TUT and the fact that there is such a person dedicated to helping with editing and reference systems.
The skills I have acquired will stand me in excellent steed for the future.
Thank you very much
