Hello! My name is Kari-Anne Innes, and this is my second semester working with graduate students at the Writing Center. I joined Valparaiso University in 2012 as program director for the Arts and Entertainment Administration master’s program and a lecturer in the Graduate School and Core. I am a member of the Teaching Across Cultures Faculty Learning Community and the Faculty Writing Circle. My research background is in theatre, performance studies, gender studies, and theology. My professional background is in theatre arts, directing, and arts administration. I am available to tutor in all areas of writing, but I am most experienced with research papers, literary analysis, business writing, and MLA and Chicago style. I can work with you in all areas of writing, including understanding assignments, drafting, and revision. I recommend making regular appointments to work through all stages of the writing process. I look forward to working with you!
Hello everyone! My name is Mike, and I’m a second-year graduate student in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program here at VU. I got my Bachelor’s degree from Taylor University where I majored in professional writing and minored in psychology. I enjoy working on outlines and pre-writing techniques as well as reflective papers and literature reviews. I am most familiar with APA format, as that’s what my program primarily uses for all assignments. However, I am also familiar with MLA and Chicago Manual of Style. I am happy to help with those formats as well. It never hurts to have another pair of eyes reading through a paper you’ve written, and I’m happy to take a look and offer suggestions. No matter where you’re at with your assignment, I’ll be here to help!
Hello everyone! My name is Varnika Chennur. I am a graduate student pursuing Information Technology. I am doing my double Masters in IT and I also have a Masters in Mass Communication and Journalism from India. I am most familiar with APA format but I’m also comfortable with the MLA style. I like writing and I strongly believe it is a powerful tool of communicating your thoughts and ideas. Come over to the writing center to seek help with your essays, reflection papers and your thesis. I also enjoy brainstorming sessions. Writing Center has helped a lot in improving my abilities in writing, reading and also thinking critically. I am sure as peer consultants we would able to work together to bring out an error free paper.
