About the Tutors
I am a fourth year English student, also majoring in Education and will be student teaching in the fall. In my spare time I enjoy reading, cooking, and playing video games, but not necessarily in that order.
I am a sophomore in the Honors College with a major in Philosophy and a minor in Theatre. I plan on going to law school after I graduate from UMaine. In my spare time I enjoy playing viola and dabbling in creative writing.
My name is Jenn, and I’m a third year English and History double major and a Spanish and Education double minor. I am involved in a number of organizations on campus, such as Autism at UMaine and The Maine Journal Project, and I also work for Concessions. I am not sure what I’m going to do with the rest of my life, but I do know that my greatest passion is finding a way to express ideas clearly through writing. I love to find the words to convey my thoughts and emotions exactly as I experience them. In the Writing Center, I hope to help my peers to do that as well.

I’m also a Peer Mentor with disability services and think myself an amateur baker! And by the way, my name isn’t nearly as scary as it sounds.
I am a senior Anthropology and English (Creative Writing concentration) major. I need two hands to count the places I’ve lived. In my spare time I enjoy writing and learning dances to Korean Pop songs.

Being with the Writing Center is giving me the opportunity to talk to people about writing, and repeatedly learn things I thought I already knew.
My name is Lindsey Hutchins. I am studying Secondary Education with a concentration in English. One of my dreams is to teach 7th or 8th grade. I also dream of writing a book of Vignettes. (Total English nerd alert, I know.) My favorite things to do are cook, read, write, relax, and spend time with friends and family.
I am a “super senior” finishing my last semester as a philosophy and English double major with a minor in sociology. I attended Johnson & Wales for two years, receiving an associates degree, before returning to the University of Maine. I write a weekly column for the Maine Campus, but I enjoy writing for its own sake as well. I hope to move on to a graduate program in Philosophy after leaving Umaine, but in the meantime I enjoy helping people organize and hone the ideas in their writing!

Next Fall I will be attending law school in Portland, where I hope to focus on women’s rights and environmental issues.
I’m a Senior majoring in Sociology. I graduated from UMaine in 2010 with a degree in English and a degree in History.

Working at the Writing Center has not only allowed me to help others with their writing, but it has also helped me with my own.
