Julie Moore

Writing Center Director

Associate Professor of English

Moore

I am a writer who loves to teach writing and help other writers develop their skills. I'm also committed to making Cedarville University's Writing Center top notch and thus regularly participate in writing center conferences, where I both learn from professionals across the world and conduct presentations about the many innovative approaches we've developed here. I'm a charter member of the Ohio Writing Center Consortium, and I've published work in the peer reviewed, widely circulated Writing Lab Newsletter. I'm also a poet who's published three books and many poems in literary venues across the U.S. I bring all this experience and expertise to the writing center here, and I enjoy working with the students, faculty, and staff who visit. Stop by soon—I'd love to meet you!

Assistant Professor of English

I am a writer, debate coach, and lover of popular culture. I first learned of my love for helping others with writing by working as a consultant at the Cedarville University Writing Center. I like to write about a number of topics, ranging from contemporary American literature to children's movies, from Homer to obscure graphic novels. If you come around the writing center, you'll likely see me observing sessions, leading workshops, and generally making trouble.

Hannah Brown

Senior, Psychology Major

Hello! I’m a psychology major with a minor in studio art. I’m from Falmouth, Maine and desperately miss forests, mountains, and the smell of the ocean while I’m at school. You should know that I like art because it helps me see the world differently. Someday I hope to work with kids. Also, I could eat a bowl of pasta with homemade sauce daily—it’s my favorite food (dark chocolate is a close second). Another fun fact: Some people think I look like Rory Gilmore from the Gilmore Girls. I enjoy kayaking and hiking, but I also love to listen and I want to help you out with whatever writing challenge you’re facing.

Austin Cordle

Senior, AYALA Major

Howdy, I’m a Language Arts Education major from one of the smallest towns in Ohio, which is saying something. I love soccer, Ohio State football, my country, and books. I am super excited about working in the Writing Center with the great students of this school! Your paper will be my foremost concern during tutoring sessions, and I hope that we can tackle assignments with enthusiasm and coffee. I look forward to hearing the unique ideas and viewpoints within your writing because that means you are exercising your freedom of speech like a true American. Come see me!

Sam Franklin

Senior, Pharmacy Major

Hello! I’m a pharmacy major from Beavercreek, Ohio. I also have a minor in chemistry, which means I survived those tricky analytical chemistry lab reports! I’d be happy to help discuss how to organize your papers better, navigate the active/passive voice differences in scientific writing, or help you survive your composition assignments. I also love anything about philosophy or ethics. I look forward to assisting you with all your writing needs.

Madie Grapes

Senior, Graphic Design Major

I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and speak Pittsburghese fluently. My major in graphic design permits me to express myself visually while my creative writing minor has developed my composing skills. I am passionate about racing 100 miles on my bike, exploring nearby hiking trails, reading classic novels, and eating cheesecake. If you're seeking a friendly tutor who loves meeting new people, but who also strives to be helpful and encouraging, then come see me at the Writing Center!

Cassie Hopkins

Senior, Chemistry and Spanish Double Major

Hello! I am currently working towards majors in both chemistry and Spanish. I grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan and am a huge fan of the University of Michigan football and basketball teams. I love watching the Detroit Tigers as well. I spent a brief time studying abroad in Spain last summer and love the Spanish language and culture. I cannot wait to go back one day. In my spare time, I enjoy playing volleyball, wallyball, reading, drinking coffee, eating ice cream, running (begrudgingly), and watching Netflix. I hope to one day be a physician assistant and world traveler. I love helping students with any form of writing and welcome all students! Come visit!

Ali Logan

Senior, Psychology Major

Ali Logan

I am a psychology major with aspirations to be a clinical counselor. I grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana, which perfectly combines the hubbub of city life with the peace of quiet neighborhoods and state parks. Spare time usually finds me running with the cross country team, sipping a hot drink, or foraging for chocolate. Wedding planning recently entered my weekly agenda, so Pinterest is my new best friend. I also love hiking and long to live near mountains. Since I am quiet gal, writing allows me to express the ideas I struggle to verbalize, and I would love to help you find your voice through writing as well!

Kat Meakem

Senior, Strategic Communications Major

Kat Meakem

I'm a strategic communications major with a management minor from North Carolina where everyone thinks 35 degrees is freezing. During my first Ohio winter, I turned into an icicle and never quite thawed. I love chocolate chip cookies more than almost anything in the world. I also like to sing, go off the trail while hiking, make sarcastic comments, watch Netflix, and use a million sticky notes. I love brainstorming and working on papers, so feel free to come see me any time at the Writing Center.

Hannah Ingram

Senior, Middle Childhood Education Major

Hi! I’m a Middle Childhood Education major with concentrations in math and English. Yes, I do like both math and English (most of the time), and yes, I do want to work with middle schoolers. Crazy, I know! My three favorite things are water (for drinking and for swimming), potatoes (in nearly all their forms), and ice cream. Some of my favorite activities are playing Frisbee and eating ice cream (although not at the same time . . . yet). My favorite books are deep reads like Harold and the Purple Crayon and If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. Okay, so while deep thinking may not be my forte, I would love to learn alongside you as we go over any or every writing assignment you’d like to bring in. I’m excited to work with you!

Janessa Krueger

Junior, Pharmacy Major

Janessa Krueger

Hello! I am from Jackson, Michigan and am currently a junior in the pharmacy program. I thrive on a steady diet of dark chocolate and black coffee and believe that sunlight should be everyone's main source of Vitamin D. I enjoy cooking and baking, watching football as much as possible, and exploring new places. I love talking with and learning from people. I look forward to working with you!

Kaitlyn Morse

Junior, Early Childhood Education Major

Kaitlyn Morse

I am an Early Childhood Education major from Connecticut. I have a passion for both reading and writing, but an even greater passion for coffee. My favorite foods include strawberries, caramel, chocolate, and pretty much anything sweet, so it's a good thing that I enjoy taking bike rides and going for hikes. When I have spare time, I like to read YA fiction, which is probably a good thing since I'm going to teach kids. I love every step of the writing process, from brainstorming to editing, and would be happy to work with you at any stage of your paper.

Maya Palmisciano

Senior, Professional Writing and Information Design Major

Hi there! I was born and raised in Burrillville, Rhode Island, and I'm very proud of my New England roots. My major is Professional Writing and Information Design, so I obviously love to write. In addition to writing, though, I love to play my clarinet and to spend far too much time watching crime shows on Netflix. Oreos are my major weakness, and I am a firm believer that hugs make the world a better place. I'm quite the nerd when it comes to writing (and especially grammar), so come see me anytime!

Elena Pizarro

Junior, Math Major

Elena Pizarro

I am a math major with an actuarial science minor from the northwest suburbs of Chicago (Lake Barrington, IL). Although I prefer working with numbers and mathematical concepts, writing is something that really intrigues me. I find it really interesting how word choice, organization, punctuation, etc. can affect how a reader comprehends a sentence, paragraph, or paper. In my free time, I enjoy watching videos from hip-hop competitions, cooking, baking, and dancing. I'd love to work with you at the Writing Center, so make sure you come visit!

Matt Pounds

Senior, English Major

I'm an English major from Indiana with a passion for smooth pens. I'm into writing, but I'm especially interested in talking about writing, which means we're both in luck if you visit the Writing Center. I'm a stern advocate of the long "a" sound in Ramen (as in rhymes with Cayman), and I'm fascinated by the concept of self-discipline. When it comes to writing, I particularly enjoy discussing ideas, and paper/paragraph/sentence organization really gets me excited. Take a peek at my hours on the online schedule, and perhaps we can link up and chat about writing.

Hannah Rau

Junior, English Major

Hannah Rau

Hi! I'm Hannah, and I'm a Michigander majoring in English. You might see me around campus with my camera taking photos of flowers or ducks. I like coffee and tea, both of which go wonderfully with a good book and a hammock. I have a fascination with sailing ships (even though I have never been on one), a newfound love of gardening, and a tendency to stand outside in downpours. One of my favorite things about reading and writing is the opportunity to view the world in new ways. I would be happy to talk about writing with you.

Ruth Towne

Senior, Professional Writing and Information Design Major

Ruth Towne

Hello, I’m a Professional Writing and Information Design major minoring in Honors and Creative Writing. Since I’m a thrower on the Track and Field team, I spend most of my spare time getting ready to compete in the javelin, discus, shot put, weight, and hammer throws. However, I still have plenty of time to read my favorite works by Dostoevsky and T. S. Eliot. I also enjoy anything that reminds me of my home in southern Maine like blueberries, mountains, and books by Stephen King.

Adam J. Wagner

Senior, English Major

I was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio and love the nature of my home state. Passionate about reading, writing, history, culture, and analyzing, I hope to continue learning in grad school. In my free time, I like having coffee with friends and taking solitary walks outside in nature. I also LOVE anything STAR WARS. If you're looking for a tutor who is chill and personable, yet dedicated and helpful, I'm your man.

Matt Werneburg

Junior, English Major

Matt Werneburg

Hey, stranger. I'm a fan of New England, dark, cave-like spaces, overcast skies, woods, mountains, candles, autumn, the '90's, controversial discussions, music, literature, and tomatoes. If you find yourself drawn to at least one of the aforementioned items, look no further—I would love to work with you on any of your writing assignments during any stage of the writing process.

Simone Williams

Junior, Christian Education and Psychology Double Major

Simone Williams

Hi. I am a junior Christian education (ministry) and psychology double major from Lorain Ohio, near Cleveland. I hope to use my career to help youth and families in some fashion. Some of my favorite things to do are read, listen to music, and argue (in a constructive, friendly way of course). A random fun fact: I have over 70 frog stuffed animals and figurines. I am happy to be someone you can bounce ideas off of, and I will gladly talk with you about how to improve the argument of your paper.
