Writing Tutors

David Kohns

David Kohns

Writing is not only a necessary part of life, but also something I am very passionate about. My goal whenever I’m helping someone with their writing is showing them how to embrace their passion, but still to be professional. I love being involved in music. I play in the jazz and concert bands and sing in the choir here at SAU. I read for pleasure every single day and strongly believe that being a good reader makes you a better writer. I love working with people one on one, and I can’t wait to see you in the Writing Center!

Reagan Voetberg

Hello, I’m Reagan! I’m an English major with a minor in philosophy. I’ve been working at the Writing Center for one semester. I love editing and everything to do with writing! I’m so excited to work with you and help you write beautiful and professional papers! I’m a fan of big words and 19th Century English. So, if that’s any indication of what it’s like to work with me… Don’t worry, I’ll go easy on you! Some of my other hobbies include reading old books, getting lost in my thoughts, playing the piano, listening to music (mostly movie soundtracks and needtobreathe), and discussing all the philosophical questions. That’s a little bit about me, but I’d like to get to know you. Let’s see what we can work on!

Cate Govier

I am a Biology major with great anticipation to be a D.O. as a physician someday. In addition to science, I enjoy writing and I look forward to assisting my peers. I am an athlete here at SAU in addition to working in the WC and being a student. Aside from school, my hobbies include the entertainment industry and spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy good conversation about passions and philosophy. If you know me, you’ll also know that I love dogs, especially mine. He is a Texas-Heeler therapy dog that I began training during the height of the pandemic and he quickly became family and someone I am most proud to bring around! With that, I cannot wait to begin working in the Writing Center and get to know my peers and their hard work!

Lauren Leu

Hi! I’m Lauren and I’m a Business Administration major here at SAU. Growing up I’ve always enjoyed all types writing. Whether it be reading books, poems, random articles from Buzzfeed, journaling, or writing research papers, I think each piece has a unique story and offers new knowledge that can further your own. Working at the Writing Center has made me appreciate reading and understanding all types of writing. I love seeing other student’s personalities pop up through their work, and through conversation about the paper itself. I believe every person can write a masterpiece, it just takes digging up your brilliant ideas and bringing them to life, which is our goal here at the SAU Writing Center. I hope to see you stop by soon!

Abby Stevens

Hi! I’m Abby and I’m a Special Education and Elementary Education major here at SAU. I enjoy reading, crocheting, and listening to music in my free time. I have always loved books, writing, and storytelling. My favorite book is The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. From a young age, I loved writing my own stories and turning them into little picture books. When I began academic writing in school, I discovered that I have just as much passion for writing about serious topics happening in our world today. I believe that storytelling is the most powerful way we can express feelings and understand what is going on around us. Through working at the writing center, I hope I can help other students become stronger writers and grow their passion for writing. I am excited to work with you in creating an incredible writing piece!
