“Tutoring at the Writing Center was one of the best learning experiences of my life. With the mentorship of the Writing Center staff, I not only mastered the fundamentals of writing but also learned to communicate and connect with students from all over the world. As a moviemaker, these skills have helped me to write sharper dialogue and work on a deeper level with actors.”

—Kevin James Hogan
