  1. Hello, Clint.
    We met last year at RMPTC 2007 and I'm working with Mike on RMPTC 2008.
    As my profile indicates, I'm the Graduate Assitant in the Boise State Writing Center. Also, this is my first year in the MA Comp/Rhet program.

  3. A big hello to Clint and everyone else here,

    My name is Alisha Kamph and I'm also a student at Boise State; I'm currently pursuing a degree in English. Unlike Zach and Jenny, I am an undergraduate, but am equally excited about participating in the writing center and in the discussions on this site.

    I'm looking forward to making friends and the exchange of new knowledge and fresh ideas...

  4. Hi all,
    It's my first year in the MA English program and also my first year in the writing center.

    Outside of BSU, I currently tutor kids in basic reading and math skills.

    I'm looking forward to working with adults and learning more about educational strategies and writing.

  5. I'll join with Alisha in being another undergraduate at BSU. I'm working toward my English degree with an emphasis on writing. This will be my senior year, but is my first year in the Writing Center. Hopefully I'll be able to continue working in the Writing Center as a graduate student next year--or the year after, depending on how badly I fry my little brains this year.

  6. Howdy all. I, too, am an undergrad in Mike's ENGL 303 and the sole linguistics major in the class. It suddenly occurs to me I might be the sole linguistics major in my LING 305. So lonely!

Enough with the Prosti----- already

While I admit I was once intrigued by the prostitute-consultant analogy, not by what Scott Russell had to say about it but by some of the ideas we threw around in class the other day, I can honestly say, now, that I am beginning to move away from the metaphor. While I once connected prostitution and the writing center through their brief meetings and levels of intimacy, I now question the nature of those meetings and the levels of intimacy available, and like David said in class, I agree that the comparison is a stretch. Here’s where I struggle with a connection between meeting a stranger, a prostitute, for sex, and meeting a consultant at the writing center. Although the ‘client,’ ‘student,’ or whatever, meets with a stranger for a limited period time to meet a specific desire, the level of intimacy between sex with a prostitute and a writing consultation differs. It is my experience that consultations between peers can be genuinely intimate as one discusses personal thoughts—there i…

I have posted a poll in the IWCA forums: IWCA Forum: Peer Tutor => What do we call ourselves: the poll!
