Academic Writing

Hi, I’m Sean O’Connor. I’m currently a graduate student at William Paterson University working towards my MFA in Creative and Professional Writing.

I have been a tutor of college writing since October of 2016.

William Paterson University

Since January of 2020 I’ve been a Learning Generalist at William Paterson University where I collaborate with a class facilitator and a peer mentor for the students, in the classroom and speak with students about honing reading, studying, researching, and writing skills.

Raritan Valley Community College

I joined Raritan Valley Community College Academic Support Center in October of 2019 where I work with students on a wide array of reading, research, critical thinking, and writing assignments including college application essays, resumes, and cover letters.

Mercer County Community College

I got my start as a writing tutor at Mercer County Community College back in October of 2016 and gained experience in organizing and delivering workshops on academic writing and creative writing and helped with the Learning Center’s fiction and poetry readings. I also had the privilege of joining the Learning Center’s TILT (Tutors Initative Leadership Team) program where I had the opportunity to produce informational videos about our learning center and help spearhead our online essay assistance program “EssayGlance.”
