"Tutoring with the AAC Student Writing Center allows me to interact with OU students from all walks of life and to discuss the ins and outs of my favorite subject: writing! I especially love working with students who have learned English as a second language because they ask great questions and are motivated to master the language. But I enjoy helping all students build confidence in their writing skills. I have even discovered that most students are better at writing than they initially believe.

I enjoy reading and writing (typical hobbies for an English major) as well as drawing, playing video games, going on walks around Athens, and learning as much as I can about absolutely everything. Along with tutoring at the Student Writing Center, I work for the Academic Achievement Center social media team and have a short series on the beauty of comic books titled This Novel Seems Sketchy, which you can view on the Academic Achievement Center Instagram (@aacohiou). I am also a Learning Community Leader at OHIO.
