Emily S.

Peer Writing Assistant

My name is Emily Scarano. I have my Bachelor’s degree in English and Secondary Education from Monmouth, and I’m currently working on my Master’s in English with a concentration in Rhetoric and Writing – I will be graduating in January. My thesis is focused on using the rhetoric of slam poetry to facilitate the teaching of creative and socially conscious writing in first year composition courses. I’ve been a writing assistant since spring ’12. I’m from right around the corner in Ocean Township, and I also work as a substitute teacher in the Ocean Township school district. I enjoy helping students gain a better understanding of writing, research, documentation, style and I help them with their big-picture questions about the content of their papers.
