UT Tyler Writing Center

Tutoring Staff

The Writing Center is staffed by a highly trained group of students, graduate and undergraduate, many of whom are part of the Department of Literature and Languages. All tutors are carefully screened and trained to work as an interested reader for any kind of writing project. Each tutor has his or her own specialty or favorite kind of writing project, which may help you in selecting a tutor.


Kristina has a background in both English literature and art history. Her particular interests in art history are aesthetic theory, Italian High Renaissance and Enartete Kunst (degenerate art). In English, her interests look to composition and rhetoric, particularly the intersection of the composition-rhetoric, the Writing Center and Writing Across the Curriculum. Kristina especially enjoys helping students with subjective or personal essays that allow students to engage with the topic personally and academically. Kristina enjoys pop culture, including Joss Whedon and Neil Gaiman, but the love of her life is her 10-year old dog Estel.


Jordan likes music and is very concerned with serving the world. He is a strong at helping brainstorm ideas.

Penny actively participates in the Global Awareness through Education (GATE) program and the Reformed University Fellowship. Her hobbies include photography adventures and board game nights with friends.
