Writing Center Fellows
Tutoring Specialties: Helping you realize that there are no "good" or "bad" writers! I like to think of myself as a very adaptive tutor/instructor. I'm good at helping people develop a thesis. I'm also very well-versed in grammar, having taught English to second-language learners overseas. I'm also very helpful with developing ideas and critical thought. We all learn, and thrive, in our own way—helping to find that, and put it to use, is what I love doing.
