Meet the Tutors

Nathan Moore

My major is Liberal Arts, and my specialty is writing fiction and non-fiction. I have written a poetry book and I am currently working on a science fiction novel. Writing is my passion; I hope to make it my career.


Christian Rivero

I’m a native Spanish-speaker who completed the English-as-a-Second-Language program at my middle school, so I know how hard writing can be for non-native English-speakers. I really enjoy helping native and non-native English-speaking students learn to communicate more effectively. I’m taking classes at NOVA and planning to transfer to George Mason University.


Christine Cartwright

After working as a forensic accountant, professor of accounting, and freelance editor, I decided to train for a career focused on my passion: teaching and tutoring writing. Currently, I’m a graduate student in George Mason’s English department, and I will soon become a teaching fellow at NOVA. I love working with students much more than numbers!


Alex Badley

I’m a Liberal Arts major at NOVA and am planning to transfer to a university in the fall. I love writing as well as working with other writers. When they understand how to make their writing better, I feel a sense of true accomplishment.


Brendan Ahrens

Being a Tae Kwon Do instructor and a writing consultant are pretty similar – except no one kicks me in the face at the Writing Center. Seriously, I really enjoy teaching and interacting with others one-on-one. There’s nothing like the feeling of seeing someone else really “get it.”


Michael Grilo

I’m a freelance film editor when I’m not helping students at the Writing Center. Eventually, I hope to write, direct, and produce feature films. I’ve had some great writing teachers, and I want to pass on what I learned from them to other students.


Josh Krisinger

I interned at the State Department and taught high school students in Germany as a Fulbright Scholar prior to working at the Writing Center. I recently applied for Teach for America, and I’m also applying to graduate schools. I love helping students engage their writing.
