Boca Raton Campus Consultants:
Hello, fellow students. I have broad interdisciplinary experience in the social sciences, including a masters in communication, and a doctorate in sociology from Boston University. So I welcome anyone working both on beginning and advanced projects in any of the social sciences. In addition to scholarly research, I have also written fiction, poetry, and screen and stage plays (and even written a song or two!). But my first love (well, aside from my family) is barber shop harmony. I could sing it all day. I hope to work with you soon.
While I am new to Florida, I am not new to writing. I have been exercising reading and writing skills at the college level for six years straight, and I am happily still practicing! Some of my strengths include close-reading analysis, outlining, organizing, and thesis development. Composition is like a puzzle; I will be thrilled to help you learn strategies for gathering the pieces (words and ideas) and arranging them together effectively. My goals as a consultant are to help you grow as a writer and to ensure that you leave a consultation knowing the next steps to take on the work-in-progress we discuss. My B.A is in English literature, and I have experience as a composition instructor at Rutgers University. I am writing my master’s thesis on depictions of public ceremony in late medieval poetry. Additional specialties include play scripts, cover letters, and resumes.
I have always had a passion for writing from a young age. I graduated with a BA in English and a BA in Criminal Justice, a Minor in Sociology, and a Concentration in American Literature. I focused a great deal of my studies on improving my writing skills, and would like to now help you improve yours. As a former student, I understand the difficulties students face when they receive that essay prompt or assignment and just do not know where to begin. Sometimes sitting down, talking about it and hearing your thoughts aloud can help significantly, so I am here to listen and offer insight for your needs. I am very familiar with MLA style and am willing to help you in any stage of the writing process. Whether it is from organizing your train of thought, to crafting your thesis, or finalizing your conclusion, I look forward to assisting you.
IS THIS THING ON? CHECK 1, 2! Alright, the mic is on. I’m Emily, and I am a graduate student working on my MA degree in sociology. As a graduate teaching instructor, I am teaching SYG 1000 in fall 2014 and spring 2015. I received my undergraduate degree in sociology, and minored in business administration. I have experience with the sociology of gender, immigration, education, family, culture, and religion. I understand small amounts of French and Spanish, and I took several classes in psychology, criminal justice, media, and music studies. I can help you with any part of the writing process, including: APA style citations, sentence structure, vocabulary, essay format and organization, essay construction and development including brainstorming and outlining, thesis construction, and draft revisions.
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!
Hey! How are you? If you have made it this far down the list, I am impressed. As far as consulting goes, I am very capable in many areas. In particular, I am an English major who is phenomenal at writing papers and is just as capable at helping you with yours. I have experience ranging from literary analysis to philosophy—and that is all before I worked at a long-standing job writing news articles. Whether you need help with issues like essay construction and thesis development, or any of the many smaller things that you need for your work, I can absolutely help you.
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 and APA citation styles. I encourage you to come in and see what the UCEW can assist you with!
Hi there! My name is Kristen and I’m an English Education major here at FAU. As an aspiring teacher, I get a lot of joy out of helping others through the various stages of their writing process.

Martha is doctoral candidate in the College of Education.

Hello! I'm Samantha, and I am a graduate student in the English MA program here at FAU (hoot hoot!). I have been a writing tutor for two years now, and I am happy to help with any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming to last minute formatting in APA or MLA. I am happy to help with any subject, and will gladly play devil's advocate if you are trying to strengthen your argument or hone in on a specific idea. I look forward to meeting you!
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.
Hey! I’m Elishia. I’m awesome. *mic drop* Additionally, I’ve studied media, culture, and nonprofit management at the undergrad and graduate levels. I’m a filmmaker by day and a government stiff by night because being a struggling artist equals being hungry, and I like burgers too much for that. I’m a boss at working with creative stuff, ENC 1101/1102 stuff, media stuff, and business stuff. I’m a thesis superhero, a brainstorming all-star, and an organizational maestro, if you will. I can also assist with resumes, personal statements, presentations, outlines, rough drafts, and understanding prompts. I’d love to help you get your ideas on the page and level-up in your ability to write amazing works of brilliance. I look forward to working with you.
