FALL, 2014 TUTORS
Hi everyone! I'm
, a part-time student at DCC. Even though I've been attending classes here for a few years, I'm just now starting to engage with the school and campus more fully; this semester, tutoring in the WC is one of the most exciting opportunities for me to do this. I've always loved writing, both the action and process as well as what we can create through it. It means a lot to me to be able to work with other students and help them become more comfortable with their voice as writers. I know it isn't easy--I'm still working on that bit myself--but being able to give voice to our ideas is one of the most powerful skills we can learn. The Writing Center is an incredible
on-campus resource to help us in that effort, and I'm so glad to have a part in it.

Hello everyone, my name is Paul Christian , and I am starting my third semester this fall. I am currently in the Engineering program, and planning to transfer and finish a four-year degree, most likely at New Paltz. I moved here to New York last fall, and I really like it so far. Outside of class I enjoy traveling (new places especially), reading and scuba diving. This will be my first time working in the Writing Center, or even tutoring at all - it should be a great experience, and I am really looking forward to seeing you all in there. As a non-traditional student, I will take an extra year to finish up here at Dutchess, so hopefully I will have plenty of time to spend in the Writing Center, getting to know all of you - thanks!
Hey everyone. I am Diana Cruz , a Liberal Arts and Humanities major. I planning on transferring soon and majoring in political science. Beside school, I enjoy visiting art galleries, watching documentaries, and reading large books. I look forward to collaborating with you on your writing assignments.

Hello everyone. My name is Joshua Neil . This fall semester will be my last at DCC. I am in the General Studies program with a concentration in psychology. After DCC, I will be spending time in the Air Force to accomplish a goal of mine of serving and trying out a new life experience and challenge. I hope to also receive my bachelor's in psychology after leaving DCC. Outside of school, I enjoy traveling, photography, reading and writing short stories. This will be my first time working in the Writing Center and being a tutor. I am looking forward to working in the Writing Center and getting to interact and assist you all with your writing. I will do my best to help you in whatever way to the best of my ability.
S'up world; my name is Aidan O'Callaghan and I'm a freshman at DCC in my second semester. I've loved to read and write my entire life, and have been employed at the Red Hook and Hyde Park Observers (local newspapers) as a contributing writer and journalist since late 2012. I am extremely excited to begin tutoring in the Writing Center, as I can think of nothing I'd like to do more than facilitate better writing and assist my fellow students in achieving their academic aspirations.
Hi, my name is
. This is my third semester here at Dutchess Community College, and my first working in the Writing Center. It is my personal belief that all writing should be short and sweet, so I am going to be as quick as I can. I joined the Writing Center because college has brought about some great changes in my own writing over the last year. It is my impression that
working in the Writing Center will be a great chance for me to explore my own writing further, and at the same time help others find theirown style of writing. I'm decently knowledgeable in most subjects, which I feel will allow me to help any and all students that come into the Center regardless of the assignment. I am currently an LAH honors student, looking to transfer once I have gotten my degree. All in all, I hope that our time together will be both fun and productive.
Hi! My name is Joshua Tubbiola, and I’m an aviation student here at DCC. Flying airplanes is my passion and my future career, and I take great pride in saying that I’m a pilot. Guitar, piano, reading and writing are a few of my hobbies, as well as anything that involves problem solving or building. Unlike most of the students at DCC, I was home schooled: the same teacher, same classroom, same everything for twelve years, and I’m very happy that I was raised that way. In general, I love to learn anything, because I don’t think you can ever know or do enough!
Professor, English and Director of the Writing Center Last year was the Writing Center's busiest ever. More and more students are using our tutoring services to strengthen their writing and thinking skills, improve course grades, and enjoy a comfortable campus home where they find new friends. This year we aim to experiment with some new writing technologies that might give writers tools to capture and process their sessions, enhancing the opportunities for revision. firstname.lastname@example.org
Professor, English and Director of the Teaching Resource Project The focus of the Teaching Resource Project is the Roundtable Lunch Project, a bi-weekly discussion on issues of teaching that brings together faculty and staff from across the disciplines. The Writing Center also sponsors an annual professional development workshop for faculty. In addition, at instructors’ requests, we offer workshops to students and classes in subjects such as writing research papers and taking essay exams. email@example.com
Teaching Lab Assistant, Writing Center Computer Lab Hi, I am usually the first face you will see when you enter the Writing Center. I’ve been here for about twelve years now, and each semester presents its own challenges as well as joys. I am here to share both with you. I often get questions ranging from, "Do you know what time the bus comes to the Main Mall," to "How do I create a database in Microsoft Access?" So feel free to stop by and drain every fiber of my being! Just kidding, looking forward to your visit. firstname.lastname@example.org
Ryan James McGuckin —Professional Tutor and Coordinator of Student Academic Persistence. Hi, my name is Ryan and here at the Writing Center I look forward to meeting with you to discuss your reading and writing questions, ideas, and observations regarding any stage of your assignment. Whether it involves drafting, revising, focusing on a few technical aspects of your writing, or anything that involves the texts and materials for your class, I am looking forward to meeting with you. Beside my time in the Writing Center, I am also an English PhD student in the Rhetoric, Writing, and Culture concentration at Louisiana State University. My research involves looking at language and communication as a series of designed and managed networks, found in a variety of mediums, such as the fine and performing arts, architecture, photography, film, and writing. These interests guide my university teaching and service as well as the work I do here at the Writing Center.
