Simply put, this course will teach you which points matter in a research paper and how to excel at those points.
I have experienced first-hand what a difference the right writing training can make.
Writing research papers used to feel tedious and frustrating to me.
To be honest, I barely reached the passing grade for my first research paper.
Fortunately, I got great mentors who showed me the way.
First, my grades improved, then I won prices, and later my research got published in high impact journals.
To my surprise, writing started to feel easy and even fun.
In retrospect, the reason why I felt frustrated was simply that I did not know how to write.
I did not understand which points really matter in a research paper and wasted a lot of time without improving anything.
Now I can go straight to the points that matter and create a great paper without wasting time.
However, without my mentors, things may have turned out very differently.
I created this course so that it can do for you what my mentors did for me.
