  • Jeff: I am currently a fourth year PhD student and an Enhanced Graduate Teaching Assistant in the English Department. I have finished course work and will be taking comps in Fall 2017.  Although I am still exploring fields for specialization, I have worked extensively in ecocriticism, postcolonial/race studies, feminism, and film studies. I received my MA in English from UTA in August 2014 and currently teach for the First Year Writing Program.  In my spare time, I love reading, listening to various types of music, and playing volleyball (as much as possible).

  • Amanda:

    Hello! I'm a graduate student working toward a master's degree in English. I have a bachelor's degree in Biology with an English minor. I have experience writing technical reports and scientific procedures from working within the chemistry and microbiology fields. I love helping other writers uncover their own excellent ideas through conversation and brainstorming. In my spare time, I enjoy photography, needlework and writing fiction.

  • Hi! I am an English major with minors in Creative Writing and French. I am a sophomore at UTA, but I should graduate early due to dual credit hours. I aspire to be a book editor after I graduate and work for a publishing company in New York. In my free time, I like to read (fiction and nonfiction), play guitar, and hang out with my friends. I like working with other students at the Writing Center because it reminds me of writing techniques I don’t often think about and inspires me to work on my own writing.

  • Dami:

    Hey, I'm Dami. I'm an undergrad bio med-tech major going into my second year at UTA. Since moving from Nigeria I've always had an interest in fiction novels (specifically the Harry Potter novels) to satisfy my overactive imagination. When I'm not buried in schoolwork, you can find me somewhere with the crew, listening to music, or binge watching whatever is good on HBO.

  • Emily:

    Hi! I am a first-year Master's student in Linguistics here at UTA. I completed my B.A. in Linguistics this past spring, along with minors in Korean, Psychology, and Dance. I have a lot of experience writing analytical essays and I enjoy helping other solve problems in their writing process. In my free time I enjoy studying new languages, reading a good book, or watching My Hero Academia.

  • Hi, I’m Emily! I am currently a junior at UTA, and pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in English. After I graduate, in two years, I plan to teach high school. With what little free time I have, I like to read mystery novels, do D.I.Y. projects, and dabble a little in creative writing. As a student, I know that academic papers can take a lot of hard work, and writing is not always the strongest quality in some people. Now as a consultant, I love that I will be assisting students in one of the areas that some of them struggle in. Come in and see me, I look forward to meeting you!

  • Erick:

    My name is Erick and I enjoy writing about topics ranging from music and history to religion and psychoanalysis. I also write stories (mostly fantasy), songs, and scholarly articles on topics that interest me. I am currently studying for my MA in English, with an emphasis on Cultural Studies (particularly East Asian and African American), Feminism, and Popular Culture. My goal as a writer is to build cultural bridges of understanding to foster a society built on harmony, tolerance, and expanded consciousness.

  • Hey there! I’m Heather, and this will be my second year at UTA. I am pursuing a Mathematics and English double major, which usually raises some eyebrows. Both subjects are fun though, and I am hoping to put them together in writing for math research, or editing/writing novels or even textbooks. I have experience helping people write from my friends in high school, who showed me the unique writing “voice” everyone has. I have always loved reading, writing, and learning new words, but some other things I enjoy are playing piano, playing soccer, hiking, the smell after it rains, and especially dragons!

  • Jessy: My name is Jessy and I am a senior. I am a double major in Spanish and Linguistics, with a minor in Korean, and certification in TESOL. I enjoy being at the writing center to help students brainstorm and get their lightbulb moments or to overcome writer's block. In my spare time, I enjoy sleeping (of course that's nonexistent in college), learning about culture, hanging with my friends, and watching dramas.

  • Hello! My name is Kyra and I am a junior here at UTA! I am majoring in English with a focus on Literature, and minoring in History. I love documentaries and reading on rainy days. My strengths are any kind of English-orientated coursework, such as essays or even research papers. However, I am eager to help any student work through all kinds of writing. I would especially love to help students feel right at home developing and honing their own writing process to tackle any assignments thrown their way.

  • Hi there! My name is Leah, and I'm a junior majoring in Psychology with a minor in Spanish. While balancing my position here along with my studies, I'm also currently interning at the Fort Worth Zoo to gain experience in studying animal behavior with a mentor. In my spare time (if I have any), I love drawing, practicing my Spanish, and spoiling my pet Quaker Parrot, Beau. During my time at the Writing Center, I hope to help my peers refine their different writing processes, while at the same time, give them the confidence they need to feel truly satisfied with their work.

  • Nehan:

    Hello! My name is Nehan and I am a sophomore pre-nursing student here at UTA. My hobbies include reading, painting and singing. I also enjoy creative writing in my free time. I like to help people with the writing process because I understand that it is difficult, but also a unique, process for every individual. Hopefully, I can successfully facilitate the process for many students here.

  • Nick:

    Hi.  My name is Nick Bowen.  I hold a BA in History from Austin College in Sherman, Texas.  I enrolled in The College of Education at UTA in the Spring of 2014, seeking an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction and certification to teach English at the secondary level.  I worked as a Proofreader and Paralegal at international law firms for twenty years, primarily doing complex, corporate restructuring litigation.  I also read and revised many patents for our Intellectual Property Practice Groups.  I started my education career as a a substitute teacher in the Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD in 2014 and as a Writing Consultant at The UTA Writing Center in the 2015-2016 academic year.  In the summer of 2016, I accepted an offer to work as a Paralegal in the Financial Restructuring and Reorganization Practice Group at Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP in Dallas.

    I remain excited to work with students at The UTA Writing Center.  The support of our Executive Staff and other Writing Consultants provide us with substantial training and resources to help students become more confident, independent writers.

I love helping writers form their ideas in a way that best gets across what they are trying to say, as well as helping them realize their full potential as a writer.
