Anastassia Bougakova '16I am a sophomore planning to major in sociology and English. Most of my writing experience lies in the humanities and social sciences, but I’m excited to help out with papers in other fields as well. I especially love working on literary analyses and research papers, so I've come to enjoy writing and editing papers of above-average length. I’m comfortable with all stages of the writing process, from brainstorming to polishing a final draft, and am particularly interested in organizing a paper in a well-structured manner that leaves room for a creative flow of ideas. I look forward to helping you with any aspect of your paper this semester!
Hoa Bui '14I am a senior majoring in education and minoring in writing and rhetoric. As an international student, I have experienced many difficulties writing and speaking in English that native speakers don't have to face. Having been through a hard time learning to write myself, I am confident that I can help other international students improve their writing. In writing, I value the structure and the flow from one idea to the next. So far, I have taken classes in all four CORE areas, plus linguistics, astronomy, math, education, LGBTQ studies, and many classes in other departments. I plan to experience a liberal arts education in its entirety, so please feel free to bring your essay to me, no matter the topic.
Zachary Coe '14I'm a senior majoring in English with a creative writing emphasis, but my academic interests also include film, music and philosophy. When I'm not in the writing center, I'm probably holed up in WRCU debating other DJs about the (in my opinion, infinite) merits of Bruce Springsteen. I've always loved writing and can think of few things more satisfying than articulating and structuring an argument. I'm open to all kinds of papers and would be glad to help out with any questions you may have at any point in the writing process!
Sarah Chandler '16
I am a sophomore double majoring in International Relations and English. I have a lot of experience writing many different papers and I can help you at any point during the writing process. I like to get my creative juices flowing so if you need help brainstorming, I’m your girl! Being a journalist for the Maroon News has also helped me finesse my editing skills, so if you have a rough draft or final draft or need help cutting some parts of your paper, I’d also love to help. In addition, I lead the Creative Writing Initiative on campus, so if you have any stories, poems, or more reflective prompts I really enjoy reading and working on those.
Christina Crowley '14I'm a senior from Bainbridge Island, Washington. I'm a history major and geography minor, and I was abroad with the London history group last semester. I enjoy reading papers across all disciplines, and I especially like working on structure and organization.
Emma Ellis '14I'm a senior majoring in English with an emphasis in creative writing. I am also interested in history, art, and biology. Most of my paper writing experience is in the humanities and social sciences, but I'm always happy to help with anything. I love the outlining process; sessions focused on discussing, refining, and organizing ideas tend to be some of my favorites. When I'm not working in the Writing & Speaking Center, I'm either hanging out there or attempting to feed myself.
Keith England '14I am a senior majoring in international relations and minoring in economics. I also have experience with literary analysis and history research papers. I am originally from Chicago, IL and spent the spring semester of my junior year studying abroad in Geneva, Switzerland.
Samantha Frankel '14I am a senior majoring in mathematical economics with a minor in writing and rhetoric. This combination of major and minor may seem unlikely; however, it illustrates that even someone with a mind for computing and problem solving can find both pleasure and success in writing and public address. I serve as both a writing and speaking consultant at the center and am trained to help you with presentations and speeches, in addition to essays and papers. Stop by at any time and I will be more than willing to help you in any way that I can!
Hannah Goldstein '16I'm a sophomore from Chicago. Though I'm quite undecided about my major, some of my academic interests include English, women's studies, and political science. When I'm not working in the Writing and Speaking Center, I keep busy as an Outdoor Education staff member, as well as a member of the Swinging 'Gates. I'm crazy about writing, and would love to help you with any aspects of your assignment!
