For the month of November, The Learning Hub’s Writing Staff is going to be saying what we’re thankful for this year. Join in in the comments! What are YOU thankful for? What writing aspects could you not live without? We want to hear!
Howdy! I’m James Kanter, and I’m a Writing Peer Tutor here at UIS. I’m a transfer student from McHenry County, IL. I have an associate’s degree in Applied Science Criminal Justice and am currently pursuing a bachelor’s in Criminology and Criminal Justice. I have enjoyed writing since an early age. To me, writing is a way to present the best of yourself. When speaking one can stumble or misspeak very easily even if they are trying to be careful. When you write, you can edit out these errors. It is for this reason that I enjoy helping students in their writing. I love to see students present the best of themselves in their papers. In addition to writing I enjoy working out at the gym and playing Magic: The Gathering.
