Hello, my name is Nick Dabbs. I am a senior, an English major, and I am also a Writing Peer Tutor here at UIS. Writing, to me, is a self-expressive process; it is an artistic form that allows an individual to express elements of their personality, style, thought process, and beliefs into a written piece of work. My hope is to help other individuals see their own potential as writers, and it is my goal to foster a positive, supportive, and collaborative environment so that individuals feel both confident in sharing their work and feel a sense of accomplishment with what they have written.
Aside from writing, I enjoy music (both listening to it and playing it), I love horror movies, riding my bike, and reading (especially Bret Easton Ellis’s work). I look forward to working with students from all walks of life.

Hi, my name is Sidney DeLeonardo. I am starting my first year as a graduate student in English at UIS. I love literature. One of my favorite novels is Edith Wharton’s The House of Mirth. I enjoy writing both academically and creatively. Though writing is stressful, it can also be a fulfilling and enjoyable activity. I look forward to helping all of you become the best writers you can be. In my spare time I enjoy doing yoga, making art, cooking delicious meals, and playing with my dog.
Hi! My name is Michael. I am a graduate student starting my Digital Publishing studies at UIS.
