Aleesha (A.R.)

Fall 2019 Partnerships: BIOB 260, ECHM 442, EIND 354, ECIV 489 & 499

Hi there! I’m from Hamilton, MT, a cute nook tucked in the beautiful Bitterroot Valley, which has lots of good fishing, hiking, and camping (which coincidentally are some of my favorite activities). I'm a Secondary English Education and Psychology double major, hoping to become a high school teacher some day. The part of my field of study that I admire the most is that reading and writing give you an opportunity to explore different worlds, different cultures, and different ideas. And I would love to hear about yours here at the Writing Center!

Anna (A.C.)

Fall 2019 Partnerships: BIOB 260, BIOH 320,BIOO 418, HSTR 207

Hello, my name is Anna (pronounced Ah-nuh).  I am a senior this year studing English writing, and women, gender, and sexuality studies. I prefer tea over coffee. I play tennis in my free time; Serena Williams is a goddess. Working at the Writing Center has expanded my views on writing. I believe that the socialization of writing can build community. One of my favorite parts of this job is to meet new people and to learn from each of you along the way.

Fall 2019 Partnerships: ECHM 442, WRIT 201, ECIV 489 & 499

Hello! My name is Arnold, and I'm a junior studying Computer Science. This is my second semseter here, and I'm super excited to learn some interesting facts through my tutoring sessions! My favorite concept that I've learned is that tantra is an entire theistic system that I've hardly heard anything about. I hope I get to see you in my future tutoring sessions!


 Arden (A.G.)

Fall 2019 Partnerships: WRIT 201

Hello, I'm Arden, a junior majoring in Ecology and minoring in Writing. I grew up in the eclectic city of Nashville, Tennessee. A few years ago, I traded the heat and humidity of the South for the cold, snowy mountains of Montana—a decision I have yet to regret. Ultimately, great writing is what brought me to the West to study Ecology. I hope that reading and writing will continue to play such an integral role in helping me find what I'm passionate about.

Fall 2019 Partnerships: ECHM 442, EIND 354

Hello, I'm Darian D'Antuono and I am currently a sophomore here at Montana State, pursuing a degree in Secondary Education-- English and History. I am originally from Great Falls, Montana and this will be my first semester as a  Writing Center tutor. When I am not in class or at work, I am a member of the MSU Spirit Squad and thoroughly enjoy being a student athlete. You can find me at every football, volleyball, and basketball game! I cannot wait to work with you all! Go Cats! :)


Ellese (E.L.)

Fall 2019 Partnerships: BIOB 260, WRIT 201, ENGL 461R

Hi! I’m Ellese and I was raised in the mountains of Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Unable to surrender the idyllic lifestyle of ski towns, I moved to Bozeman because it was the school with the closest skiing. When the snow's not falling, I love to mountain bike, surf, do yoga, binge read, play guitar, and occasionally trail run. Here at MSU, I am a junior studying English Writing and Pre-Med.

Hannah (H.C.)

Fall 2019 Partnerships: WRIT 201, ECIV 489 & 499, ENGL 461R

Hi! While there are many places with which I feel a personal connection- Taiwan, Norway, Germany- I'm so thankful to call Bozeman home for this last year at MSU as I finish my degree in Elementary Education. I look forward to getting to know/partner with you in ways that will inevitably extend and challenge my perception of the world!


 Hannah (H.M.)

Fall 2019 Partnerships: BIOB 260, HSTR 282, HSTR 207, WRIT 201, ECIV 489 & 499

I was raised by the dank darkness of Alaskan rainforests. Wilderness of place and spirit have always been my teachers, facilitating many cruel lessons of survival that have translated to an inclusive understanding of shame, pain, and trauma. I credit these experiences for developing me, raw and compassionate. I carry these influences with me everywhere I go, including into the Writing Center.  

Hannah   Henry

Hannah (H.T.)

Fall 2019 Partnerships: ECHM 442, EIND 354, ECIV 489 & 499

Hello, I’m Hannah! I'm in my fifth year studying English Education and Women, Gender, and Sexuality studies. I’m from Dillon, MT, but I’ve never successfully ridden a horse or managed to sit through an entire football game. Rather, I spend my time struggling to make steaming pots of green curry, find hidden huckleberry patches, and nap in patches of sunshine. 


 Henry (H.F.)

Fall 2019 Partnerships: BIOB 260, BIOH 320, BIOO 418, HSTR 282, HSTR 207

Hello! My name is Henry and I am a Math Major in my senior year. Although my major doesn't involve conventional writing, I've taken planty of writing classes including seminars and creative writing courses. Outside of coursework, I've been through significant application processes and I have even presented my own research to groups of fifth graders. If you want help with application packets, presenting your work to expert and non-expert audiences, or pretty much anything else, I would be happy to help.

Holly (H.N.)

Fall 2019 Partnerships: WRIT 201, ENGL 461R

Hi everyone! My name is Holly, and I am a junior majoring in English Literature and Pre-med studies. I was born and rasied in the tiny, rural town of Joliet, Montana, so it is unsurprising that I love doing anything outside! When I'm not on campus, you can find me hiking, fishing, or taking my dog Kylo to the dog park. This is my first year as a writing tutor, and I am beyond excited to be here! 



Honey (H.R.C.)

Fall 2019 Partnerships: BIOB 260, ECHM 442, EIND 354, EENV 341

Hi, I'm Honey! I'm a junior studying Criminology with a minor in Business Administration. This will be my second year at the Writing Center, and I'm so excited to meet you. In our appointments, I'll do my very best to listen to your experience and help you make your writing, process, and/or product meaningful to you. So, come write with me for good company, coffee and maybe some conversation about my dog, Grace!

Jessie Frame   Jon Sorensen 

Jessie (J.F.)

Fall 2019 Partnerships: WRIT 201

I'm Jessie and I'm a post-bac Secondary Education major. I got my first undergraduate degree at CU-Boulder, then moved to Bozeman after a weekend visit that began with a full moon midnight skin up Bear Canyon straight from the airport. Working at the Writing Center is one of the many incredible opportunities Bozeman and MSU have provided for me. I am excited to be a part of such an encouraging and intelligent community!


 Jon (J.S.)

 Fall 2019 Partnerships: BIOH 320, HSTR 282

Hello, my name is Jon, and I was born and raised in Kallispell, Montana. I am a sophomore studying Secondary Social Studies Education. In my free time, I enjoy a wide variety of games from poker to Monopoly, as well as golfing, hiking, and skiing. I am excited for this upcoming school year and to have some fun improving our writing abilities together. See you in the Writing Center!

Jordan (J.R.) 

Fall 2019 Partnerships: WRIT 201, ENGL 461

My name is Jordan. I'm an English major in my senior year. However, I'll try and name all of the things about me that would leave you uninformed about who I am beyond my field of study. I'm loud, but working on it. My favorite part of the day is talking to people, new and old. I have been singing since I was in elementary school up until this year, but you might see me doing karaoke around town sometimes. I live in Belgrade and complain about commuting more than is socially acceptable. 


Julia (J.H.)

Fall 2019 Partnerships: BIOB 260, HSTR 282

Hey everyone, my name is Julia, and I'm from Whitefish, MT! This is my second year in the Writing Center. What I'm most looking forward to this year in the Writing Center is meeting new people and learning more about writing across campus! I'm currently a junior majoring in Cell Biology and Neuroscience, with a minor in French. I also coach soccer and am involved with research on campus. When I'm away from school, I enjoy exploring the outdoors through skiing, trail running, mountain biking, and backpacking.

   Landon (L.S.)

Fall 2019 Partnerships: BIOH 320, HSTR 282

 Hi, I'm Landon Shipley, a sophomore pre-medicine student majoring in Organismal Biology and Philosophy. I grew up in Polson, Montana, training and playing in the clean Flathead Lake, adventuring throught the wild Mission Mountains, and enjoying pleasant times with my family and friends. I enjoy swimming, cycling, and running. This will be my first year as a tutor—I hope myself and everyone I meet has a good and beneficial time. I look forward to seeing you in the Writing Center!

Maddison (M.M.)

Fall 2019 Partnerships: BIOB 260, BIOH 320

 Hello! My name is Madison and I am a fifth-year student studying Economics and Global & Multicultural studies. I adore Montana so much that I stayed in Bozeman, my hometown, for college. I love painting, listening to true crime podcasts, baking mini desserts, cooking, and tending to my plants. On campus, I am an advocate with the VOICE Center and have been involved with Sustained Dialogue. This is my third semester as a tutor, and I look forward to working with you!


Maddie (M.S.)

Fall 2019 Partnerships: BIOB 260, ENGL 461R

Hi, my name is Maddie Sholar and I am a senior in Political Science. This will be my third year at the Writing Center! When I am not working or schooling, I love backpacking in the mountains, baking, drinking coffee (it's the ritual, not the caffeine... I tell myself), and traveling. This last summer I got to travel to Europe and thru-hike the Colorado Trail, so if you ever want to talk adventure come make a session with me! 


 Nas Cardwell 




 Nathan Moon


Nass (N.C.)

Fall 2019 Partnerships: EIND 354

 Howdy! My name is Naseeha, but I go by Nass (sadly I have never taken my horse to the old town road). I was raised in South Seattle, but half of my family is from Kenya—an easy realization once you glance at any of the walls in my bedroom which are filled with handmade animal masks, oil paintings, and banana leaf art. I'm a senior studying Chemical Engineering and hope to pursue a PhD in Nuclear Engineering. I am thrilled to be a tutor for the Writing Center and even more eager to continue improving my own skills. In my free time, I enjoy baking little treats, belting my heart out, swimming in open waters, and (quite recently) learning how to play Dungeons and Dragons!


Nathan (N.M.)

Fall 2019 Partnerships: BIOB 260, ECHM 442, EIND 354, EENV 341, ENGL 461R, ECIV 489 & 499

Howdy! I'm a junior studying Accounting. My passions include hiking, climbing, reading, cooking, and getting to know people. I'm fascinated by people's wonderful ideas and the ways they choose to express their thoughts with words. I thoroughly enjoy listening to people talk about themselves and their passions. Most of my writing is straightforward and concise (hopefully), typically in the form of journal entries or letters. 

Natalie Waddington     

Natalie (N.W.)

Spring 2019 Partnerships: BIOB 260, ECHM 442, EIND 354, ECIV 489 & 499

Hello! My name is Natalie, and I am a senior studying English writing and French culture. I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado, and I hope to go back there one day. As far as activities and interests go, I absolutely enjoy doing nothing. I spend most of my weekends watching movies, binge watching shows, reading, and writing... also, cuddling with my roommates' dogs. I look forward to working with you in the Writing Center!
