Hello all! My name is Christin Caparas and I am a fourth year English major. In my free time, I enjoy listening to podcasts, collecting vinyl records, traveling, and going on long walks with my dog. I am also working towards completing a certificate in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), in order to gain more experience teaching. While I am passionate about teaching, I hope to attend law school in the near future and focus on immigration law. I look forward to meeting you all and working together to make this a great school year!
Hi! My name is Phoebe Chen and I am a second year nursing major. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, watching Netflix shows like Mad Men and Glow, and trying new foods. I love traveling and plan to learn Spanish this summer so I can better navigate foreign countries and communicate with Spanish-speaking patients when I work as a nurse in the future. Besides working at the Writing Center, I am the secretary of Alpha Tau Delta, a professional nursing fraternity here at UCI.
I am very excited to be working at the Writing Center again, so come on by and meet all of our wonderful specialists, tutors, and staff!

Hi! My name is Callie Tennock, and I’m a fourth-year (whoa) English major. I just transferred here from San Luis Obispo, and it already feels like I’m home. I worked for the writing center at my community college, and I loved being constantly surrounded by people who were creating and challenging themselves. I’m so excited to get to do that here, and to get to know all of the students who walk through our doors.
