 Meet the Tutors

Of course, you may have already met the tutors; if you haven't visited them at the Center or attended a workshop they led, maybe you sat next to one in Principles of Biology, acted with one in a play, or played with one in the orchestra. The peer tutors have diverse interests, but they share three things in common: their love of writing, their skill in communicating, and their general awesomeness. They're good people to spend half an hour with. So come in and see them.

Hannah
Major: English
Minors: Music and WGSX


About Hannah:
Hannah is treasurer of TNA and is a facility manager at the ARC. She plans on pursuing a career in Public Relations and Communications upon graduation. She loves to travel, laugh, and sing, and thinks more time should be allowed for reading on the beach. She also has a huge crush on Leonardo DiCaprio, plus a weakness for double-stuff Oreos. 




Clarissa Rous

Clarissa

Major:Biochemistry
Minors: Environmental Studies and Music 

About Clarissa:
Clarissa has been writing for 13 years (and counting)! She recalls writing, at age 5, a story in which the colors of the rainbow got lost and had to find one another. Future attempts at fiction did not get much better. However, she enjoys writing essays for class and journaling for her own use. Philosophy and History rank among her favorite essay topics, but she is always willing to work on a Biology or Chemistry lab report! In her free time, you will likely find her reading, doing yoga, dancing, hiking, or creating artwork. She is very patient and loves to help out, so please don't hesitate to stop by! 

 

Lindsey Leitera

lindsey

Majors: English and Political Science


About Lindsey:

Lindsey is a current Junior who frequently indulges in the practice of aimless Internet-browsing. Her favorite types of writing include personal essays, journalistic accounts, Social Science research papers and angry manifestos. Her spirit animal is the doge meme and in another dimension she fixes computers. She loves reading the newspaper, traveling, thinking about 3D printers, eating good food, debating current events and being a part of the Writing Center team!
