Grammarly is asking me to put an auxiliary verb before the pronoun 'you'.

This is a question in a series of questions that I will eventually be asking an interviewee. I would appreciate any help in wording this correctly.

Thanks

I can't see a need to add anything.  I replaced 'to get through to' with 'to connect with' in my head. It's only one word shorter, but it seems a little simpler.

 I'm not sure what the question is - there already is an auxiliary verb before 'you' because this is an interrogative in the present simple tense.
