For someone offering tutoring services, this flyer is messed up on so many levels. You would think that a “school and university teacher” would want it to be perfect. But sadly, maybe this is typical.
Off the top of my head:
1) The first bullet sounds like a command to the reader. “Go help people!” Especially given that bullet points should support the heading and not usually answer a question.
2) What’s with the inconsistent bullet spacing?
3) “And its due in tomorrow!” Shouldn’t this really be part of the “Got a problem…” question?
4) I like the “genuinely useful help”. Not like that fake kind.
That’s tragic on so many levels.
Perhaps it’s a request: “Let us babies tap the keys…”
How did this person become a teacher in English?? Someone was just handing out diplomas willy-nilly.
