I am a senior English literature and computer science double major. I am comfortable with working on all parts of the writing process, whether it's brainstorming, making a word choice, or refining an argument.
I am a senior double-majoring in peace and conflict studies and English, so I have a lot of experience with all kinds of papers, from research to analytical. I love working with PCON and English, but I also look forward to reading about new subjects! I think that brainstorming, outlines, and organization are the most important parts of any paper, and I love making sentences more fluid, argumentative, and generally prettier. But who doesn't enjoy a good grammar session? Come by to work on anything you need!
I am a senior majoring in biology, with extensive experience writing both analytical short essays and research papers. In addition, I understand the format of lab reports for both chemistry and biology courses. My favorite part of the writing process is the organizational stage because that is when the paper develops a legitimate argument. I also like to keep my work both logical and concise, slashing away unnecessary information. I love to learn about new topics, so feel free to come to me with any kind of paper. Hope to see you soon!
I am a senior double-majoring in French and English with an emphasis in creative writing. Although I’ve had the most experience writing for the humanities due to my majors, I love working on papers from other disciplines, too, including analytical papers and research papers. I especially like to focus on clarity, organization, and argument, making sure that the structure of the paper presents the argument in the most straightforward, meaningful way possible. Often when I’m having trouble with a paper, whether it's getting started or tying up the loose ends, I find the most helpful thing to do is to talk it over with someone. I'm eager to discuss papers at any point during the writing process!
I'm a senior majoring in international relations and minoring in film and media studies. I'm comfortable working with papers at any stage of the writing process, but would like to emphasize that I am all too familiar with that anxiety-ridden, beginning phase. I have found it’s very important to integrate a lot of conversation during sessions; this is more rewarding for the clients and I get an excuse to do what I love: chat!
Hi! Things to know about me: I’m a senior. I am a psychology major and love learning about cool psychological things. I absolutely love doing the code cracker in the paper and Sudokus. Catcher in the Rye is my all time favorite book. And I think that’s basically it! I can’t wait to see you in the Writing & Speaking Center!
I major in education and minor in writing and rhetoric. As an international student, I have experienced many difficulties writing and speaking in English that native speakers don't have to face. Having been through a hard time learning to write myself, I am confident that I can help other international students improve their writing. In writing, I value the structure and the flow from one idea to the next. So far, I have taken classes in all four CORE areas, plus linguistics, astronomy, math, education, LGBTQ studies, and many classes in other departments. I plan to experience a liberal arts education in its entirety, so please feel free to bring your essay to me, no matter the topic.
I'm a junior majoring in English, but my academic interests also include philosophy, music and psychology. When I'm not in the writing center, I'm probably holed up in WRCU, Colgate's radio station, working as Music Director and debating other DJs about the many merits of Bruce Springsteen. I'd love to try my hardest to help with any and all issues you may encounter when writing a paper!
I'm a history major and geography minor from Bainbridge Island, WA. I love working with history papers but also enjoy all humanities concentrations, even if I am not familiar with the subject material. I like structuring papers for clarity without making them overly rigid, and I sometimes tend to be long-winded so I understand the trials and tribulations of concision. I'm going abroad to London in the spring and I would love to work with papers in all stages of the writing process while I can this fall!
