I received my undergraduate degree at MSU Denver in creative writing and then received a Master’s in Fine Arts in Genre Fiction from Western Colorado University. I love to travel, and among the many countries I’ve been blessed to visit, I have been on eight mission trips to Haiti. When I am not gleefully working with individuals on their writing, I am deep within my own writing projects, which include but are not limited to: book reviews, the odd blog here and there, short stories, and novels. Reading is one of my greatest joys and, as you can tell by my MFA, I enjoy all the forms that writing takes. My pedagogy as a consultant is that writing is a skill that anyone can learn.

Hi, I'm Brenda Wright, and I've been teaching and tutoring at Metro State for over twenty years. I'm a Denver native who went to East High and then on to the University of Colorado at Boulder. I did my graduate work in English and philosophy at CU Denver. I've been at the Auraria campus for many years because I LOVE TEACHING not simply because I have to work. I love talking about ideas and language. Most of all, I love empowering students to speak, write, and think on a level they never thought possible. Students who want to become more articulate and who want to express themselves better enjoy working with me. I love to laugh. It's a must to have a sense of humor on this academic journey. I look forward to working with you soon!

Hello, my name is Aubrey, and I’m currently a junior at Metro, studying English, specifically professional writing. My degree here will lead the way for me to enter into the grant writing sector of business, which I am extremely excited to enter. But for now, I am a tutor in the writing center so I can help others navigate their way through their writing in a stress-free manner. I care so much about the education of others that I am extremely willing to help anyone that asks.

My writing philosophy is simple: write until you can no more, take a break, and come back to finish. This is the best piece of advice I’ve been given as a writer, and I think it’s important for others to know. So many people get frustrated with writing that sitting down for hours at a time is something that most don’t want to do. But, if you stick it out, and know when to walk away, writing gets much easier, and words tend to blend together less often. As a writer, I believe it’s most important to take many little steps to getting big projects, and even papers done. Splitting the work up into many easy tasks is a great way for not only the novice writer, but for the skilled one as well, to have a quick and efficient way to the finish line.

If I were to have a writing “super power” it would definitely be the ability of generating great new ideas for papers. I love exploring new topics every time a write, and because many people have a hard time coming up with ideas for papers, I believe this skill will come in handy throughout my work with students in the writing center.

I read everything, especially still being in school, but in my free time, I read a huge amount of fantasy. I love being swept away into magical lands where the laws of the real world may not apply. I love when my imagination flows freely, and fantasy is a great way to let go of all worldly problems, in my opinion. I’m always open to new reading suggestions, so bring them on! I’m so excited to be with the writing center, and I am excited to help the learning of all students continue to be strong and peer guided.

Hello friends,

 
When it comes to writing, I have found that there is no case of writer’s block that a good walk can’t cure and you cannot be afraid to share your work with others. That’s how I ended up in the Writing Center. After keeping my writing to myself for 22 years, I decided to open up to peers. This helped build my confidence as a writer and meet some really great people. When you come in to the Writing Center I hope to help you gain more confidence with APA, research/academic, nonfiction and creative writing. I also hope to learn new things from you because that’s what college is all about. 
 
I am one of those people who moved to Colorado a few years ago, started wearing Patagonia all the time, and brings my Hydro Flask everywhere. After transferring to MSU Denver in 2016, I finally decided on a major. Now in my senior year, I am happy to be graduating with B.A. in Psychology with a minor in English-Writing in the fall of 2018. I am the type of person who really takes their time with things so I do not have my mind set on any one career. I hope to end up in a career where I can apply Psychological theories to real world problems and then write about those experiences in a way that the everyday person would understand and enjoy. If you see me around, I will most likely look like a crazy person who should lay off the coffee and both of those things are true. Don’t let that stop you from saying hi.

Hey guys! My name is Cristina, and I’m currently studying Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences here at MSU Denver. I actually already received my Bachelor’s degree in English Literature from MSU Denver a couple of years back, so I’d probably consider my “expertise” to be literary criticism. In the past, I’ve written a lot about mythology, medieval lit, Shakespeare, and British lit, but I can help you out with anything from speeches to lit reviews to journal articles. The mentality that I’ve always found successful when working on a paper is that 90% of writing is prewriting, so I will always be a huge fan of outlining when working with other students. I am more than happy to help anyone out with organization, structure, flow, or even just brainstorming ideas! I try to think of writing as a never-ending learning process, and I can’t wait to learn with you!

I’m Caila, and I’m a Biology and Anthropology double major. I am directing my education toward Public Health, specifically in the realm of chronic disease prevention and health equity. I have done research and writing projects in Genetics, Biology II, Women of Color, Women’s Folklore, and Cultural, Linguistic and Biological Anthropology. My favorite project took place during my study abroad experience for a cultural anthropology class that focused on the impact of certain government programs on the ethnic groups of Northern Thailand. I have practice integrating social justice theories into ethnographic analysis, as well as writing lab reports and scientific research summaries.

I chose to work as a peer consultant at the Writing Center because I believe that everyone can communicate their ideas in a way that feels true to them. There are no bad writers, only bad feedback! I love working with a student to learn what organization, planning, and executing strategies work best for them. Writing projects should not induce panic attacks! We are here to find your voice.

I greatly enjoy working with English language learners, and other language learners, to improve their fluency and work on strategies for continued learning. I have studied Spanish, Russian, and Thai. Though I’m not fluent in any of them, I have a good understanding of their general structure and pronunciation, which makes learning more about them much easier. I love learning about a culture through language, which makes language learning less scary.

I’m also the co-historian for MSU Denver’s chapter of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

I came across the writing center as a requirement for a paper during my first semester at MSU. The helpful and accepting environment made me feel at home, so I decided I wanted to join. It’s been a fantastic privilege to build my teaching skills and assist my fellow students with such an amazing team!

I love to write creatively, and I’ve written a great variety of things ranging from prose to plays. I also enjoy doing research in my own time, and I find myself frequently falling down rabbit holes of information to sate my curiosity. Recently, I’ve even dabbled in making informative videos about essay writing. You can find my YouTube channel if you search for Hannah Hagin or Alpacademics!

In the writing center, I specialize in building outlines and brainstorming ideas. I’m also good at helping improve things like flow or grammar, and I can help you get new perspectives on your paper. I’ve got scores of great tips if you’d like to hear them! I’d also love to help you with your creative work! Please give us a call and come visit the writing center soon!

Hello! My name is Sarah Heath and when I was 18 I wore a homemade Halloween costume to work at a busy restaurant. I wanted to dress as Poison Ivy from the popular Batman movie with Uma Thurman (I should mention I’m 6’1 and Uma is actually 5’11). I did not have very much money so I just put on every tight green thing I owned, wore some high heels that I could barely walk in and bought a large decorative ivy garland from a crafting store and wrapped it like a sash over my shoulder and secured all the way around my waist. I towered over my co-workers at the host stand the Saturday night of Halloween weekend and braced myself for men to fall at my feet. Likely over 500 people came through the restaurant that night and I kid you not probably 300 of them burst into laughter and pointed at me saying, “Oh, wow, the Jolly Green Giant!”

I suppose my point is that life is a series of moments where you have to decide do I cling to my original plan that is not working or do I pretend that I was clever enough to dress up as the Jolly Green Giant and go confidently in a new direction. Either way, we’re here to help.

Hey there! I'm Deserae and I'm a writing major with a Japanese minor. I'm from Texas and Las Vegas; I've lived here for about nine years now. Ever since I was a little girl, I was obsessed with reading and writing. I used to get yelled at constantly for always reading during class and would usually stay up until the early hours of the morning writing. I've read a lot less in college due to the lack of time, but I still adore it. I love to read fantasy and am working on a young adult fantasy series that I hope to publish in the next few years. I hope to one day be a Japanese translator while I write my books and travel the world. My specialty is creative writing (crazy!), MLA citations, organizing, brainstorming, and revising. I love helping people become their best writers and finish work they can be proud of and so does every other tutor here, so if you have a paper written in English you need to work on, stop by! We'd love to see you.

Hello, I was born in November the same day the original "Dreamgilrs" closed at New York's Ambassador Theater.  After my birth I spent several years living with reckless abandon under the enabling care of two people I call Mom and Dad.  I would eat spaghetti and peanut butter face first with no hands, wear soiled pants, and smile at complete strangers.  Eventually, I got my life together and came to Metro. My major is English and my minor is Beer, or, as the hospitality department calls it, "Brewery Management." Reading and drinking are two of my favorite things and I feel like having an official document to prove I am good at both will enhance my life tremendously.  
 
Ash is my cat friend and I don't know what I will do when she is gone.  Perhaps, sacrifice and mummify myself to protect her in the underworld -- mummified rotisserie chicken for me on the side.

Hey all, Harrison here! Since Morgan Freeman charges almost $1 million per narration, I couldn’t scrap together enough pocket change in order to have him to perform my bio aloud. So, instead you’ll have to read everything moving forward in the key of Mr.Freeman himself. Enjoy!

 In the beginning, there was only darkness and chaos. Papers were being turned with incorrect citation styles. Run on sentences ran rampant, and the confusion between their, there, and they’re, was at an all time high. With the student population being dowsed in red ink by their professors, It seemed as if all hope was lost.

But then, something miraculous happened.

 A dashing warrior, a herald of the English language and representative of the Writing Center strolled into town proclaiming from the highest of mountains, “I CAN ASSIST WITH ANY CITATION QUESTIONS YOU HAVE! STUDENTS OF METROPOLITAN STATE UNIVERSITY, YOU NEED NOT WORRY ANY LONGER!”

The student population, skeptical at first, (and rightfully so), bombarded our faithful hero with many questions.

“What if I need help with something that isn’t related to school!?” One student exclaimed.

The hero of our faithful tale simply smirked at the question and simply rang out from the deepest part of his well-toned abdomen, “AT THE WRITING CENTER WE CAN HELP WITH ALL ASPECTS OF WRITING! BE IT ACADEMIC OR NON ACADEMIC. AS LONG AS IT IS TIED TO THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE WE CAN HELP AS BEST WE CAN…EXCEPT FOR MATH, YOU REALLY DON’T WANT OUR HELP WITH THAT ONE!”

“But what if I don’t feel confident in my own writing!” Asked another student full of concern.

“AT THE WRITING CENTER WE BELIEVE EVERYONE IS A WRITER. OUR GOAL HAS ALWAYS BEEN TO FOCUS MORE ON BUILDING THE WRITER THEMSELVES UP FIRST, GIVING YOU THE ESSENTIAL KNOWLEDGE REQUIRED TO VANQUISH ANY ENGLISH RELATED FOE MOVING FORWARD!”

The student population cheered, although slightly confused as to why our hero yelled all the time with them being only two feet away.

And thus Harrison- I mean our hero, who specializes in creative writing, synchronized sandwich eating, MLA & APA citation, and being, as the student population referred to him as, “A really chill dude”, cemented his place in history as one of the coolest writing consultants to ever work at MSU Denver.

Hello, everyone! My name is Louie and I currently am working on my BA in Communications with a concentration in Rhetoric, Ethics & Social Justice after switching from the Social Work program. I now have Social Work as my minor. I have too many goals for my lifetime and not enough time, but one goal I have now is to be a Site Coordinator for Reading Partners Colorado. Ask me about volunteering with a great organization to help children with literacy, and I will talk your ear off about it! I started working in the Writing Center after a few of my classmates from Community College of Denver told me that I would be a great tutor. I love to be that person in the class that helps their peers with assignments, and I always set aside time for fellow students. I believe success is a collaborative effort. I also believe in the power of asking as many questions needed. I had a professor who once profoundly said, “Closed mouths don’t get fed,” in reference to us students accessing our local resources and asking questions. That said, please come visit us at the Writing Center to help with any assignment!

 When you come in to see me, I will help you construct an outline and organize your assignment. For me, even the most basic of an outline can help guide the direction of the assignment. What’s the point of this piece? What are we supposed to have learned after reading this paper? I love to hear ideas and connecting the dots, and I would love to help brainstorm and organize your assignment! I can help with constructing a speech, PowerPoints, and group projects. I am most rehearsed in the social science, but I have done many forms of writing pieces from statistics journals to film reviews. 

My favorite genres to read are nonfiction and historical fiction. I have recently decided to start reading science fiction because it is one of my favorite genres to watch, so why not read it? Give me some recommendations! I want to learn what others else can teach me, so come in and let me read your research paper!

My family is from Puebla, Mexico and it is something that I take pride in. I consider myself a soccer enthusiast and a Mexican music connoisseur. I am currently majoring on computer science in addition to an English minor.

I have a great amount of hobbies including; coaching soccer, playing soccer, writing lyrics, creative writing and working on my truck. I am not a Colorado native, but I feel like one since my family and I moved to Aurora, Colorado on 2011 from New Mexico and it has been the best decision that my family has taken.

I took the decision to become a peer writing consultant because I want to help students become better writers as our writing center philosophy states.

It might sound crazy, but while growing up, school always was and still is my favorite thing to do. Learning has always been a big part of who I am, being a naturally curious person. My English major allows me to be curious and ask questions I never thought of before; it allows me be to go beyond the surface. My hobbies include reading – (mostly plays, children’s books and anything with Stephen King or Neil Gaiman, etc.). I love to go on walks and I adore music (maybe a little too much).

I am equally passionate about science and literature, and have written extensively in both subjects. From research papers to lab reports, editorials to short fiction, (and a few terrible poems thrown in for good measure) there isn’t much I haven't written. I have experience in APA and MLA.
