MEET THE WRITING CENTER TUTORS
Katherine Andersen, Biology Major
Specialities: Science and Biology
After ten years of working retail, Katherine decided that going to college would be better than folding clothes. She's a senior majoring in biology and hopes to ultimately earn a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. When she's not in class or at the Writing Center, Katherine can probably still be found on campus because she's the PAL for genetics, an occasional tutor, and a student senator. When she's not on campus, she enjoys watching TV and movies and spending time with her daughter.
Dylan Crisp, Civil Engineering Major, STEM-Dedicated Writing Tutor
Dylan specializes in helping students with engineering reports and other papers that are heavier in scientific or mathematical jargon. While his engineering courses are his main focus, writing has always been a strength and he enjoys using that aptitude along with knowledge of the STEM subjects in order to help students with those particular writing needs. He also works part-time in a satellite position in the Ottensman Hall Atrium. Feel free to e-mail Dylan or call the Writing Center to find the hours that he is in Otts. (Walk-ins are encouraged during those hours.)
