I have recently finished my dissertation on the strategies that undergraduate writing center tutors use when they work with adult and advanced writers. My research for the dissertation focused on writing center pedagogy, identity theory, and andragogy. Other research interests include composition pedagogy, writing center management, and Appalachian literature. Each year I attend the College Composition and Communication Convention to network with my colleagues in composition studies and to learn best practices to incorporate into my classes and King’s Composition program.
