Hello! My name is Kaitlyn, and I am an Accounting Peer Tutor at the Learning Hub. I graduated from UIS in May 2020 with my Bachelor of Arts in Accountancy. I am currently pursuing my MAcc (Master of Accountancy) while also working as a GA in the CBM department. I am also planning to sit of the CPA exam as soon as I am eligible.

During my undergrad, I was on the Women’s Tennis Team as well as a member of many organizations around campus. Even though things are looking a little different this year, I still plan to be just as active on campus and hope to meet a lot of new people! During my free time I love anything outdoors as well as reading a good book, cooking and working out. My personal goal is to provide the help students need to pursue and succeed in their own degrees and goals.

Thomas

My name is Thomas and I am a Junior Economics and Global Studies double major. I am also a member of the Cross Country and Track teams at UIS, so yes, I run a lot. I recently decided to add the Global Studies double major to broaden my understandings of the world and learn how to communicate with different people. Hopefully that also assists me in being a better Economics tutor! I enjoy reading, playing video games, and running.

Fun fact, I learned and tutored a new programming language in the same day. If you haven’t guessed by now, computer science makes up 80% of my hobbies. The remaining 20% is longboarding. Also, it’s a rare occurrence I’m not wearing purple.

BrightonBrighton Headshot

Hi!

My name is Brighton Robbins and I am a masters student in the Political Science program. After completion of my B.S. in Criminal Justice at Lincoln College, I decided to further my educational career here at UIS! For the longest time I have found writing to be one of the greatest tools we possess, and being able to help students with their writing is something that I love doing. During my free time I love to read, and I love books from just about every genre (but my all-time favorite is Harry Potter of course).

Evie

Hi! My name is Evie and I am a fourth-year CAP Honors student and member of the Writing Peer Tutoring staff. I am currently double majoring in Economics and Sociology/Anthropology. My favorite thing about writing is being able to explain unexpected interconnections between concepts. I believe writing is such a valuable skill because it gives everyone the ability to present the (sometimes jumbled) thoughts in their head in a logical and lasting way. I love helping students hone this skill during their appointments at the Learning Hub.

In my free time I enjoy watching YouTube videos, going on hikes and walks, reading, and perusing Reddit!

“I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound or stab us. If the book we’re reading doesn’t wake us up with a blow to the head, what are we reading for?” -Franz Kafka

“Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.” -Rumi


KateKate Headshot

Hello! My name is Kate, and I’m a Writing TA at The Learning Hub. I recently graduated from UIS with a bachelor’s degree in English, and I’m currently pursuing my master’s degree in Communication with an emphasis in Media Studies. I was a student athlete on the women’s tennis team during my undergrad years, and I’ve been a poetry editor for our school’s literary journal for two years now. In my free time, I’m most likely engaged in some sort of outdoor activity, catching up with my friends, or drinking coffee at a cafe while working *subtle cough, reading. Another passion of mine is traveling to new cities and meeting the people there! I also work at Wm Van’s Coffee House most weekends, so if it isn’t already obvious, I’m a bit of a coffee addict. I plan to pursue a career in the editing or public relations field after graduating in two years, and in the meantime, I look forward to working with students to further their writing skills and overall academic success!

ReginaRegina Headshot

Hi! My name is Regina and I’m a writing tutor here at the Hub. Although I am in my Junior year at UIS, I am still kind of new to things here on campus. I transferred from Lincoln Land Community College where I majored in Elementary Education. I hope to finish that degree here so I can eventually work in the public school system where I can instill my love of learning in the next generation! I have always had a special passion for reading and writing, so I am excited to share that passion with the students I can help out.​
