“Academic Writing” is a highly recommendable course
There is a focus on the didactic variation between teaching and in-class tasks which works really well. Assignments during the course are based on the individual students’ scientific papers and makes the course so much more relevant to the participants.

Tamara is a Proactive Teacher
Tamara is a pro-active teacher who is very present and tends to respond rather quickly with well thought out responses. Finally, the course material is extremely helpful, and I have been using it in my work whenever writing activities are performed. To conclude, I would highly recommend this course for people looking to improve their academic English.

Professional and Warm-Hearted
The course focused on how to write academic English for journal articles. The course had a high academic level with good ‘hands on’ exercises as well as ‘take home’ and ‘ready to use’ advice. As a teacher, Tamara was both professional and warm hearted. I enjoyed the lessons very much.
In the middle of the course, we were suddenly challenged as COVID-19 reached Nuuk and were sent home to a lockdown. We had to continue the rest of the course online. Tamara made that transition very smooth and professional. Despite the unfortunate circumstances we finished the course in a satisfying way.
I give Tamara my very best recommendation.
