Writing Center Peer Tutors (2013-2014)
Alex La Pierre
Alex La Pierre is one motivated senior majoring in Communication who absolutely loves language. Not only does she enjoy the fundamentals of English, but she has studied French, music, and the language of horses for years. She even knows a little Spanish! Feel free to see her for help with general essay concerns, help with press releases and journalism based writing.
Bailey Merlin is a junior English major with a literature concentration with a Writing minor. When she isn't busy with her spell books--because she is indeed a descendent of Merlin himself--she likes to listen to music (particularly The Black Keys and the Red Hot Chili Peppers), read books about far off places, and play video games like any other self-respecting English major. Her strengths are brainstorming for new ideas, drafting theses and structure.
Christopher Zefting is a senior Religion and Philosophy major with a concentration in Religion. He is also the president of the Buddhist Studies Group and is a TA for the Religion department. He loves the outdoors, travel and philosophical mental gymnastics (facilitated by good conversation, mostly). He enjoys exploring the many different styles of writing and looking for the strengths of even the most challenged writers.
Elizabeth Mitchell is a senior Animal Science major Chemistry minor. She is also an Honors student. Her specialties include thesis structure, brainstorming, organization and citation formats.
Jon Risley is a junior History major interested in playing with cats and learning new things. As far as writing goes, he enjoys brainstorming paper topics and theses as well as constructing and critiquing arguments.
Jordan Shaw is a sophomore considering a major in psychology. She is thinking about going on to receive a Masters degree in Christian counseling. However, she is also interested in government. Her writing strengths include reorganizing paragraphs to improve the flow of the paper and developing fuller body paragraphs.
Lane Pybas is a senior English Literature major and Spanish minor. She enjoys books, music, and foreign languages and cultures. Her writing strengths are organization, moving from summary to analysis and thesis construction.
Matthew Murphy is a sophomore Political Science major. He started off as a Biology major, but quickly decided that he enjoyed the argumentative nature of political science far too much to ignore it. His strengths lie in crafting arguments and making weaker arguments into stronger ones.
Melissa De Lozier
Melissa is a junior, currently double majoring in English and History. Her primary interests include reading, writing, traveling and listening to music. An avid writer, her strengths include thesis statements, organization and cohesion.
Micah Bahchech was raised in a small town and educated at a small high school who transitioned to a different small town and a rather small college (the illustrious silver and blue, the mountainous pinnacle of enlightenment and academia, Berry College). His life heretofore appears unremarkable for two reasons: his crime fighting alter ego has been kept secret, and he has yet to publish the work of literature that will define a genre, inspire a generation, and clear the path towards a new way of thinking (probably it will be called Post-postmodernism). He is an English major and works as a staff reporter for Berry’s own Campus Carrier.
Molly Campbell is a junior Psychology major concentrating in environmental and social issues, as well as clinical psychology. Her writing strengths include persuasive writing, critical analysis and lab report writing. Molly loves adventures of all kinds, as well as cooking, knitting and petting furry animals.
Nick Vernon is currently a sophomore with an intended English major and French minor. His writing strengths include creativity, structure and brainstorming. In his spare time, he loves to watch and play soccer.
Noëlle Mouton is a junior Animal Science major and Chemistry minor who is excited about her second year at Berry. She enjoys dancing with Berry's Dance Troupe, and loves sunsets, British accents, Titanic and anything with peanut butter. As far as the writing process is concerned, she especially loves to work with writers on achieving clarity as well as improving organization and sentence structure.
Taylor Walton is a sophomore English major with minors in Education and French. Along with being a tutor, she is a First-Year mentor this semester. A patient tutor, she aims to help every open-minded peer utilize the best of their writing abilities with any assignment. Taylor aspires to become a high school English teacher and a published author of young adult fiction back in her hometown of Savannah, GA.
