FREE KITTENS!!! Assuming that I have your attention, let's all agree that writing can be a very difficult and laborious process. Don't know what laborious means? Come see me. The point is that writing can be rewarding (and even fun) once you know what to do! I specialize in first and second year writing and use a variety of approaches aimed at helping you develop what it is that you want to say. I welcome any discipline and every writing style. Whether it's a problem understanding the assignment, how to organize your thoughts, or where to find meaningful support - I can help you.
What it do!? I mean, Greetings! My name’s Christian, and I specialize in long walks on the beach, and being a lifelong student of the writing and composition process. A majority of my experience lies in the English literature, and Sociological fields, but I’d love to work with you in any other area. I’m familiar with struggling during the writing process, and I’m here to help you with everything from brain-storming and pre-writing, to thesis development, and content organization. I can be quite friendly, and happy, so if that’s right up your ally, we’d work well together. Hope to see you soon!
I would love to help you with any stage of the writing process! If you are having trouble deciphering a reading, struggling with understanding a paper prompt, blanking on what to write, or are agonizing over drafting or grammar issues, please feel free to schedule an appointment with me! I greatly enjoy discussing class readings as well as dissecting poetry and prose from both the undergraduate and graduate levels. I am very comfortable with all genres of literature as well as a variety of other areas of concentration, such as psychology, sociology, criminology, classics, women's studies, anthropology, law, philosophy and rhetoric, and history. I also LOVE grammar, so if you are a second language student who would like clarification or support in this area, drop on by! Finally, when it comes to format and citation, I can help you with MLA, APA, ASA, Chicago or Turabian, and California. You can either sign-up for an online appointment or come see me in person at the writing center. See you soon!
I hold an MFA in creative writing and teach freshman level English composition. While my background is in literature and composition, I enjoy working with students from all disciplines and at all levels. I have experience with MLA and APA styles as well as graduate level research. I am confident that I can offer you assistance with any stage of the writing process, from understanding a writing assignment and generating ideas to developing a sound argument, fine-tuning your proofreading skills, and making sure your citations are in order. Whatever your need, I am eager to assist you in writing academically, critically, and creatively.
I specialize in writing for the social sciences as well as in English, literature and poetry. I can assist you in any part of the writing process, and am willing to work you on writing ventures of any length—whether it’s just one paragraph or one-hundred pages. I am especially proficient in grammar, sentence-structuring and use of words. I have experience with APA, MLA and Chicago style formats. I am also conversational in French and Spanish, and can work with you in these languages. Please do not hesitate to make an appointment with me. I am a graduate student in the political science department, with a B.A. in anthropology, a certificate in ethnic studies and an A.A. in literature.
Writing has always been a passion of mine, but I fully understand the anxiety that can accompany academic writing assignments. I hold undergraduate degrees in both Philosophy and Spanish and am working toward a Master’s degree in Women’s Studies, so I have experience in a variety of different writing styles. Before coming to FAU, I was also the President of an ESL tutoring program, which has given me significant experience in working with students whose second language is English. My strengths include developing strong theses and arguments, paper organization, and style. More than anything, I am here to help you feel comfortable and confident about the writing process!
Why is writing so difficult? As writers we often do not know where to start and we can feel lost and confused. I can help you with the various areas in the writing process. Bring in your prompt, materials, and let’s get started! I am familiar with various brainstorming and prewriting techniques which will help you formulate your ideas. Additionally, I am a stickler for a good thesis statement. I enjoy working through the thesis writing process to create a well-developed statement for your paper. Furthermore, I have experience in writing within history and am very familiar with primary sources, historical texts, and Chicago citation. I encourage you to come in and see what the UCEW can assist you with!
I specialize in English, Creative Writing, and Literature. I hold an MFA in Creative Writing and can help you with any step in your creative process. I have also taught ENC 1101 and 1102 and have thorough knowledge of MLA format. I am happy to help you with any assignment or project you are working on. No matter what stage you are at in your writing process, I am confident I can help you take the steps to becoming a better writer. So come, meet with me, and let’s talk writing.
If you are an adult student returning to school after a hiatus in college work, you may feel challenged because of new technologies and computer and research literacies. I’d like to help you feel confident with your writing using these tools. Writing is more than spelling, grammar and style. It involves negotiating technology and the ability to ferret out valid information. I like working with graduate students who need to tips on the databases and library research, are required to use the APA style guide, speak English as a second language, and who have not been in school for a long time. If you intend to go to graduate or professional school, I can help you write your personal statement to medical, dental or veterinary school. My background is in medical and social science, anthropology, film, women’s studies and vocabulary building.
Churning out one good product is nice, but developing the habits, skills, and outlooks that produce endlessly eye-popping writing is even better. Lyam has been a Reading Learning Specialist for over 8 years. He’s also a published author, and he has extensive experience with demons. Yes, demons, those invisible habits that live inside you, possess you, and make you produce both bad and good results without you appearing to have any say in the matter. Let’s unearth them and put them to work in all the ways that work for you. Sure, the paper in front of you is important, but the habits that you’ve got embedded in your writing process are even more interesting!
My background is in English and Psychology. I have experience with the MLA and the APA format, as well as the creative writing process. As a participant in several writing workshops, I have always enjoyed collaborating with my peers – and now, I’m here to collaborate with you, on anything from brainstorming to perfecting the final draft.
They say the hardest part of the writing process is getting started. So, why not get started with some support? Can’t think of a good reason not to? Then come see me at the UCEW. I would love to work with you to help you produce your best work.

However, I welcome writers with all types of writing tasks as I have experience in a variety of writing genres. Whether you are seeking help with the brainstorming process or looking to improve a final draft, I would love to help make the process of writing a little bit easier for you. Like the sound of that?

I am passionate about helping you find your voice! During each writing consultation, I seek to meet your needs as a writer and to empower you to more clearly formulate and effectively express your ideas. Undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and staff are more than welcome to meet with me; however, as a PhD candidate, I may be a particularly suitable choice for graduate students. I can help with any aspect of the writing process, including, but not limited to, thesis development, organization, and grammar. I can advise you about Chicago/Turabian, MLA, and the basics of APA styles. I am currently in FAU's Public Intellectuals Program, writing my dissertation about the politics of transgender in contemporary U.S. science fiction television. I have degrees in Communication and Religious Studies, as well as the designation of “Fellow” from the World Journalism Institute and a graduate certificate in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. I have academic expertise in feminist, womanist, and queer mythopoeic thought; gender, sexuality, and transgender studies; and feminist critical/cultural theory and analysis. My published writings explore religion, poverty, and gay rights. In addition, I have delivered or facilitated over fifty guest/invited lectures, panel presentations, and workshops.
As an undergraduate myself, I understand the stress that comes along with writing your first college paper. Or your second. Or tenth. We'll work together to understand what it is that your assignment asks of you, bring forth your great ideas, and put them on paper into a composition that is focused, strong, and coherent. I also have experience in creative writing and in tutoring non-native speakers, so I am confident that we can work together to address any writing needs.

I believe in creating a comfortable work environment where a student feels free to ask the questions and get the answers they need in order to become a successful writer. My job is to demystify the writing process by breaking it down into steps a student can understand and implement. I am proficient in either MLA or APA formatting. Sessions can include brainstorming to generate a thesis and paragraph topics or working to learn the rules of grammar and punctuation. Writing is a process; the more you practice, the better you will be!
If you're feeling overwhelmed by an assignment--no matter where you are in the writing process--I can help. I am happy to help you find a thesis statement that fits your goal and to help you organize your thoughts so that your writing becomes more effective. I welcome writers that would like help with APA, MLA, and Chicago style formats.

My name is Maria. My BA is in English with a minor in Spanish and religious studies. I am currently an MFA student in Creative Writing. I specialize in poetry and have a knack for grammar. I have experience working in poetry and nonfiction Creative Writing workshops, so I am more than happy to work with aspiring writers (as well as writers who are just trying to make it through ENC 1101). In addition to my Creative Writing/English specializations, I also have an interest in philosophy and psychology. I am familiar with both MLA and APA styles, but am more comfortable with MLA. I am willing to help with any assignment but am most enthused to help with understanding assignments, arguments, analysis, proofreading strategies, and creative writing assignments.
