ENC1102 First-Year Writing, Reading, Research

ENC1145 Writing about Everyday Writing

This course is the second of two courses required for students  to fulfill First-Year Composition (FYC) at Florida State University.  This course focuses on research: effective uses of research, when to use research, and how to use certain kinds of research. Building upon that foundation, my course specifically focuses on everday kinds of research (such as personal experience and multimedia evidence) and how that kind of research can help us understand research for academia.   


This course is of my own design. ENC1145 can supplemant ENC1102--the second course that fulfills a student's requirement of FYC. Like ENC1102, this course is focused on research. The focus of this class, specifically, is to frame writing through our student's everyday forms of composing. Students are asked throughout the semester to compose and analyze vernacular types of texts throughout the semester such as hand written letters, Vine videos, temporary graffiti, and found compositions. The goal of the course is for students to understand research and writing by converging student's composing outside the classroom with compoing students do inside the classroom



Digital Studio

The Florida State University Digital Studio is a space for students and faculty to receive tutoring for digital, visual, or multimodal projects. Students and Faculty can draft their projects in this space as well as receive tutorials on programs. In this space, I have tutored students on Photoshop, InDesign, iMovie, Wix, Audacity and other programs. I have tutored faculty, students, and undergraduates for projects in school and for out-of-school.

Relevent Project

Graduate Writing Center


The Graduate Writing Center (GWC) is a tutoring space that is geared toward graduate students specifically. Students can come to receive writing tips and strategies for writing research grants, abstracts for proposals, graduate thesis and or dissertations. The Graduate Writing Center receives a lot of traffic from students whos first language may not be English. I have tutored both face-to-face and online in the Graduate Writing Center.

Reading and Writing Center


The Reading and Writing Center at FSU is designed for students to receive tutoring at any point in the writing process: drafting, revising, or brainstorming. But also, the RWC can help students with reading and comprehension stratagies for difficult readings. I have had regular appointments with student athletes, international students, and graduate students.
