I'm a graduate English student, currently working on my Master's degree. I have two Bachelors degrees – one in Spanish and one in English. So, the past 6 years of my life have been completely dedicated to academic writing, primarily research-based analysis, exposition and argument style papers. Moreover, I have been tutoring for English and Spanish writing since 2011. I am very familiar with MLA, APA, and Chicago style. I also have extensive research experience. And, I am comfortable working with any learning and writing style, but am most compatible with visual and auditory learners. I love getting to know my tutees and learning together how best to help them grow as writers.
My name is Anna. I'm a
graduate student in the Maritime Studies program. I earned my BA in English and
Women's Studies from Appalachian State. My favorite type of writing is probably
narrative. I love how writing can be used to express thoughts and explore
curiosities. The ability to write clearly and persuasively is one of the most
important skills a person could possess. I look forward to helping my fellow
students develop and improve their writing skills.
I am a graduate student working towards my master’s degree
in English with a concentration in Technical and Professional
Communication. I obtained a BA in English, while minoring in Biology, at

technical and professional.
I am an undergraduate student double-majoring in Art Education and
Multidisciplinary Studies (Art Histories). In my spare time, I enjoy reading
memoirs, and my favorite type of paper to review is a reflection paper. I like
to write about personal events in my life that are significant to me, and I
also like to write as a form of activism. I believe art is one of the most
powerful tools to leverage social change, and I like to use my writing skills
as a way to practice that. I think my strongest skill as a writer is to create
imagery and make the reader feel like they were a part of my story. I hope as a
consultant with the UWC, I can help every client I have feel more confident
with his/her/their writing skills. I look forward to learning about a variety
of topics from other students and faculty who visit me at the UWC, and I look
forward to hopefully improving my own writing skills through working here.
I am a sophomore EC
Scholar studying English Secondary Education. As a future English teacher who
believes in the power and necessity of effective writing, I love working with
others through the writing process. My interests include literary criticism,
rhetorical analysis, and using logic to craft arguments. My favorite thing
about writing is that everyone has the power to write something that has never
been written before. Through our writing we can bring order and clarity to
complex thoughts and emotions! I personally enjoy writing anecdotes and
developing arguments for analysis. My biggest goal is to help writers develop
sentence variety and other stylistic elements that take writing to the next
level. What I am most excited about is developing relationships with clients
and sharing my love for writing with my fellow pirates!
I'm Hope and I'm majoring in Forensic Science. I am really familiar
with scientific papers, research papers and lab reports. My favorite
kind of writing is creative writing. I don't get to do it often because
the writing in my field is based around fact and data. I have my
"Writer's Toolkit" which was something I never knew existed until a
professor (R. Nancy) introduced it to me. My toolkit is something that I
implement on every paper I write. I look forward to working with my
fellow Pirates in the UWC and sharing this idea of a toolkit. I know the
alleviation I got after my own sessions with consultants at UWC for
papers I stressed over and would love to pass that feeling and sense of
relief to others! I hope to help them develop ideas and concepts to
really blossom within their writing, while helping me become a better
I am a graduate student; I have earned my Bachelor's Degree
in English and am currently working towards acquiring my Master's Degree.
I enjoy writing and reading fiction, short stories, and poetry and plan to
teach these subjects. I also aim to have my own writing published in the
future. I am a strong advocate of creative writing, in all of its forms. I
encourage everyone to give writing a try, and to see what they can create when
they put their minds to it. I hope to inspire others through my teaching and
writing to pick up a pen (or a laptop) and create their own written worlds as
My favorite author is Stephen King, but I also love the
novels in the Florida style such as MacDonald, Hiaasen, Dorsey, and
Lindsay.I love how no two people write
alike, each person’s style is as unique as a fingerprint.I have great organizational skills, and lots
of experience helping people gain additional resource materials.I can’t wait to help other students discover
writing abilities they might not be aware they possess.
Hello, I am a Sophomore this year. I enjoy writing because it gives us
the ability to share our thoughts and ideas with others. My favorite
kind of writing is creative writing because it allows the individual to
express themselves freely. My writing strengths are organization and my
ability to develop ideas. Last spring, I took a writing course designed
to help us tutor individuals in the Writing Center. I look forward to
using the techniques I learned to help writers make the best work
Hi! My name is Mary Kathryn. I'm a Political Science major
with minor in English. I have been writing since I was old enough to comprehend
the English language. I love to creative write. I am have a great deal of
experience in writing essays, specifically research essays and argumentative
essays. I appreciate the research behind the writing and I love to learn new

Because of my background in biology and chemistry,
scientific writing is my strength. I've composed quite a few formal lab reports
and quantitative research papers during my time at ECU. However, the rigid
structure of the sciences makes me value the freedom and creativity of fiction
writing and poetry. I value writing so highly because it allows people and
ideas to transcend the limits of time and space to communicate valuable ideas.
As a tutor, I hope to work with a variety of unique writers to create pieces
that accurately convey the message they wish to send.
My name is Melissa
Glen. I am a sophomore Communication and Political Science major at ECU. I have
been involved with writing ever since I joined my high school newspaper. I was
the editor in chief my senior year, and now I work for the ECU newspaper in the
news section. I like writing, because it is a way of expressing valuable ideas,
emotions and memories. It is a way of keeping something forever that could
otherwise be lost. I am skilled at developing free flowing transitions in
papers. I am also good at writing introductions which get the thesis statement
across to the readers. I have had experience with science research papers,
english papers, history papers, personal statements and creative writing
papers. I am looking forward to being able to help people discover their own
talents with writing. I want people to see writing is something everyone can be
good at with time.
Hi, I am a graduate student pursuing a Master of Arts in Teaching-English Education. My favorite type of writing is research writing. I have been research writing for a long time, so I am most comfortable with it. I enjoy working with people on grammar, MLA formatting, and paper organization. I am patient, and I understand the frustration of writing. I am approachable and always here to help.

I'm a graduate student in Rehabilitation and Career Counseling with experience in writing education, nursing, synthesis, and English papers. My favorite part of the writing process is definitely brainstorming, but I also love helping writers research interesting articles for their papers, organize their content, and better understand the assignment. While APA formatting is my favorite, I can confidently locate resources for any formatting style.
It’s often been said of me, for various reasons, that I
should have lived in an earlier era. I couldn’t say if that’s true, but I do
know that throughout my life, I’ve been drawn to the writing of times
past—authors like Poe, Hawthorne, Mangham, and Austen, among many others. I
most look forward to being able to help the students who come to the Writing
Center to develop some of the skills I learned through reading and emulating
those writers: crispness of language, organization of ideas, and the ability to
put words on a page—the same words everybody uses every day—in such a way as to
produce something that is a source of enjoyment for both the writer and the
My background is in scholarly writing, particularly for
research. I also have a strong interest in consumer-based blog
writing. I enjoy writing because it gives you a chance to stand out.
Whether it is for ourselves or for others, for fictional or scientific
writing, every piece written involves putting a piece of yourself in it.
I enjoy all types of writing, with my personal favorite style being
persuasive essays. I’m looking forward to connecting with people who
desire to improve their writing capability and discover their own style
and expertise as we work together in the writing center.

disciplines as a writing consultant. Just as each writer is unique, so is every

let the words flow. I have quite a bit of experience writing in Philosophy. I
