Meet Our Student Managers

In addition to being Writing Tutors and/or Language Tutors and Writing Fellows, Student Managers are model tutors and peer leaders in the Writing & Language Center who assist the Director and Tutor Coordinator with daily operations, activities, workshops, trainings, and events in the WLC. They are an integral part of our collaborative team who lead by example and who also offer their co-workers (other tutors in the WLC) a helping hand, a wealth of experience, and–most importantly–an empathetic ear.

Esme Alfaro’24 (She/her)

My purpose in tutoring as a Student Manager is to help others, being either tutors or tutees,  grow their skills and confidence surrounding their writing and writing practices so that they feel prepared to play their role in our writing center. I recognize myself as a resource for everyone and anyone in our writing center. My role is to support whoever is in the Writing Center with whatever support they may need, whether it be through tutoring, advising, being a liaison between directors and tutors, or taking care of the space.

Amanda Taylor’23 (She/her)

As a student manager of the Writing and Language Center, I value and prioritize effective communication among the tutors and my colleagues to ensure productive meetings, tutor sessions, and general conversations. In cultivating this writing space, making myself, our services, and resources accessible is a priority to ensure that our tutors and peers’ needs are being met. I promote developing rapport among tutors and tutees as well as tutors being reliable resources on campus in and beyond the WLC.
