Of the Breaking of the Cycle
Abby V (she/her)
Hello! I’m from a small farm in Janesville, WI. I’m a Political Science major, French minor, and aspiring International Law student. When I’m not reading or doing homework, you’ll find me gardening, volunteering, trying new things, or simply hanging out with my (innumerable) pets. I have a lot of experience in Western Heritage (Intellectual Foundations) and Political Science but am happy to help with any papers. I look forward to working with you in the Writing Center!
Hello! I am a Spanish and Elementary Education major looking forward to teaching dual language elementary one day! I love to travel, write, exercise, and spend time with my friends and family. I would be more than happy to help you in the Writing Center and hope to see you there!
Ashley G (she/her)
Hi! I’m majoring in computer science, and I hope to work in database management or web development one day. When I’m not working on a program, I enjoy traveling, video games, music, and baking. I also love writing, and I’m excited to have the opportunity to help other writers!
Howdy! I’m a psychology major from Aurora, Illinois! When I’m not working or studying, you can find me reading, playing video games, or working out! Though I am a psychology major, I came to love writing through my many creative endeavors. As a writer, my strength lies in organizing papers and generating passionate arguments.
My name is Bethany and I’m double majoring in Environmental Science and Political Science. I’m a studious person, so I spend most of my time doing homework, but when I’m not doing homework I like spending time with my friends or watching Netflix. I have always been a very passionate person, and reading and writing have been important components in helping me express that passion. I’m always working to learn how to be a better writer, and over the past few years, I have developed a strong appreciation for the beauty of the writing process. As a writing tutor, I hope to help others write papers that they can be proud of.
My name is Braden Jakovac and I am a Sophomore here at Carthage. I am a Geoscience major with a Classics minor. This is my first year as a fellow and I am excited to work with other students on any paper or assignment sent my way. I am constantly learning myself, so I am happy to be able to work somewhere that both the tutor and the student can learn from a session. Outside of the Writing Center, I am very active in student organizations like Carthage Activities Board, Residence Life Committee, and the Ultimate Frisbee club team. I enjoy being active all over campus and I am excited to be a writing fellow this year.
Hi, my name is Catherine and I was born and raised in Appleton, Wisconsin. I am studying psychology and criminal justice. When I am not in the Writing Center I enjoy walking down by the lake and drinking coffee—catch me in Starbucks most days. I am a self-proclaimed mac and cheese connoisseur. My favorite type of writing is creative writing, even though I find it the most difficult to craft. My favorite book is Storm and Silence by Rob Thier but I have also read every Sarah J. Maas book ever written. I am so excited to be able to assist all writers with their work, especially Western Heritage papers.
Chloe G (she/her)
My name is Chloe, and I am a Pre-Med Neuroscience Major, minoring in Psychology here at Carthage. Even though I am a science major, I have always loved reading and writing creative works, and even found joy when constructing various papers for Western Heritage! Outside of school I love to lift weights and play volleyball, as well as travel (I have already checked Peru and Honduras off my list) and drink inhuman amounts of iced coffee - regardless of the temperature. After my time here at Carthage, I hope to attend Medical School, and pursue a career as a trauma surgeon.
Grace T (she/her)
I am majoring in neuroscience and chemistry with a psychology minor. Although I am a STEM major, I have always loved reading and can help students write in all disciplines! Aside from school, I enjoy spending time with my friends and doing activities outside. I absolutely love all animals and get excited whenever I see dogs on campus!
Jackie M (she/her)
I am an English major with minors in Spanish and religion. As part of my two other jobs on-campus, you might see me hauling boxes through Straz or managing Thursday night SPIRIT worship. I also love music and sing in Chorale. My jobs and classes keep me quite busy, but when I have free time, I like to practice piano, read, or knit. I also love writing, and I’m happy for the opportunity to help students improve theirs!
I am a communication and studio arts major at Carthage with a minor in Spanish. I grew up in Minnesota but have also lived in Illinois, Colorado, and Vancouver, Canada. Outside of the Writing Center, I work in the Office of Communications and the H.F. Johnson Gallery of Art. I enjoy collaborating with friends on zines and art projects, Animal Crossing, and cooking. I look forward to helping out with all of your essay and writing needs!
I am an Environmental Science major and English minor. You’ll probably see me at the pool either swimming or playing polo, or maybe even in the JAC singing. But, when I’m not in the water, I love to write! Typically, I have a straightforward and task-focused attitude, but I can be chatty and personable too. My favorite aspect of tutoring—especially in the Writing Centre—is helping others improve a skill that they will use all the time in their lives. I also enjoy teaching others about grammar, since it can be very tricky sometimes.
Meg L (she/her)
I am a senior political science major minoring in German and music performance. When I do not have my head buried in a book or an article, you can find me at the JAC playing the french horn or piano, hanging in my dorm room playing Animal Crossing or Minecraft, sulking because I miss my four cats, composing crappy music and poetry, eating cucumbers, or ranting about politics. Wear a mask, black lives matter, love each other, and learn to enjoy writing!
Peace for the Women of the Therigathas
Morgan T (she/her)
Hello! I am a Music Education and Vocal Performance Major with a French Minor. I try to do a little bit of everything on campus so that leaves me pretty busy, but I love to devote my time to each and everything I am involved in! From Tower RA to Neil-Futurist and member of Carthage Choir, I am also the only French Tutor on campus so feel free to bring in your French papers! If I do not have mountains of homework to sift through, you can find me reading in my hammock down by the lake!
Hi! I’m currently double majoring in English and Communications. My current goals are to finish a novel and get into publishing once I graduate. I love to write creatively, play video games, and spend time with my friends. Writing is one of my greatest passions and I look forward to helping other students with their papers.
Sierra S (she/her)
I am an accounting and finance major. Despite primarily working with numbers, I love reading and writing and I am happy to help with writing in any discipline. Throughout the semester, I can be found in one of the tower kitchens baking cookies, brownies, or other desserts. I tend to bake when I am stressed, but I always end up with a lot of extras, so if you see me, stop by and grab a cookie.
Hello! I’m majoring in economics with minors in data science and Asian studies. My passion for writing mostly stems from my love of reading and my favorite genres are fantasy and science fiction. I’d be happy to work with you on any paper or piece of writing you may need help with!
