Hi all, I’m Sam and this is my fourth semester at the writing center. I’m an English major with a minor in philosophy ad might be graduating in the fall. Maybe the spring though. The real world is a little scary and I’m hoping to avoid it. I might be going to grad school after I graduate. I might not though. This is a trend in my life. That’s ok though, I like the mights in my life. They keep it interesting.


Greetings! My name is Chris and I am currently in my third year at Roosevelt, majoring in Media Studies. This is my second semester working at the Writing Center. After I graduate I plan on writing for a publication of some sort, most likely a newspaper. I enjoy reading, writing, and eating pizza. Upon request, I will lecture on the dangers of energy drinks as opposed to actually tutoring.

Who We Are

Tutoring sessions involve a wide variety of tasks, but at the heart of every session is conversation—a conversation about your ideas and the best ways to make your ideas clear. Students can work with a tutor on any aspect of their writing. Writers and tutors often work together on the following:

  • Brainstorming
  • Editing strategies
  • Organization
  • Grammar
  • Thesis statements
  • MLA or APA citations
  • Argument and Evidence
