Peer Writing Assistant
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.
