Hi, I'm Audris! I earned my bachelor's degree right here at West Chester University, and I am excited to be back and enrolled in the M.A. TESOL program. I have been in the Army for seven years and I love travelling. This will be my third year volunteering abroad; I am leaving for Nepal in the fall to teach English for two months. In my spare time, I tend to either take naps or attend fitness classes. My life isn't that exciting.
Ian Ball is a first year graduate student on the Writing, Teaching, Criticism track. After completing his mater's, he hopes to pursue another (possibly in creative writing,) work toward a PhD in English Literature and eventually land a job teaching at Temple University working under Samuel R. Delaney. In other words, he will never be finished school.
He is a lover of all things film, and will happily bore you to death with his extensive "knowledge" on the subject given half a chance. He is also, most importantly, the proud parent of two beautiful children, Zinnia ,2, and Hendrix 1, (yes, you read that correctly,) whom he raises with his amazing girlfriend, Molly, also a first year grad student at WCU.
Hello everybody, my name is Andrew Heller and I'm a junior majoring in English: Writing. This is only my first year as a tutor in the writing center, but I already enjoy gaining a better knowledge of the craft through guiding others with their writing processes. My favorite genres to work with are creative nonfiction and research essays, although I'm eager to help with any project. To me writing is a meaningful tool for self-expression, both in a personal and academic sense, and should be utilized by all. Therefore, I truly believe that we can all learn something in the tutoring process and am excited to take part in it with you.
I am a graduate student in the English department studying writing, teaching, and criticism. I am interested in helping writers gain confidence and skill across disciplines, and I especially love working with writers on personal statements, resumes, CVs, and cover letters.
Hi! I'm CJ McGowan and I'm an English education major here at WCU. My favorite thing about being a tutor at the center has to be discussing new ideas with writers.
Ben earned a bachelor's degree from Penn State University and is enrolled in West Chester's graduate English program. He has a heart for teaching and might even do it. Ben is keen on shell games and prefers subtitles to dubbing, but he admits more things should just taste like chicken.
Amanda is a graduate of the English MA program at West Chester University. She is currently the assistant director at the writing center. Amanda enjoys working with writers on early drafts, brainstorming, and personal statements.
