  • Betina K.

    She/Her/Hers

    Hello my name is Betina! This coming Fall I will be going into my fourth year as an English literature major. The topic that I enjoy writing the most about revolve around feminism: feminist representations in contemporary literature and film, women as literary subjects and producers of literature, and gender dynamics in relation to race, sexuality, and culture. I also enjoy writing creatively as a hobby and love to explore creative ways in which to approach or consider more serious and analytical topics in academic writing. I have aspirations for teaching and/or pursuing a career in the educational field and for that reason, I prioritize open communication and in depth discussions as major parts of my tutoring program. Keeping in mind our university's educational values of equity, inclusion, and diversity, I am eager to learn about our students' different cultural and educational backgrounds, as well as the different ways in which students learn and develop their writing skills. My ultimate goal as a writing consultant, with a language background in Arabic, is to cultivate a comfortable and culturally inclusive enviornment. One that encourages all students to feel enthusiastic and passionate about achieving their writing goals.

  • Louisa O.

    Philosophy, Sixth College

    She/Her/Hers

    Hey, I'm Louisa! I'm a 4th year Philosophy student from Sixth College with an interest in Studio Art/Illustration.

    I'm the most familiar with analytical papers that combine personal arguments and textual support. The topics I'm the most familiar with are philosophy, social sciences, and other liberal arts subjects; however, writing is a protean process that can accommodate any topic you want.

    I'd love to help you personalize your writing. While analysis, argumentation, and coherence are important, I also strive for quite a bit of lateral thinking and creativity - clever analogies, unusual word choice, all of those things can be an invitation for writer and reader alike to think about topics in a new way.

    Other than writing, I enjoy digital painting, playing instruments, and meeting new people.
