Jeffry C. Davis

Jeffry C. Davis, Director

Professionally, I spend much of my time and energy writing and teaching about education; in particular, I focus on the literacy skills that are central to the liberal arts: reading, writing, speaking and listening. As the Director of the Writing Center at Wheaton, I enjoy empowering students to write clearly and persuasively, helping them to read their own work with a critical eye for revision. Preparing college students to teach English also proves to be a central preoccupation for me at Wheaton; therefore, I supervise student teachers in the public schools.

Sue Dillon

Susan Dillon, ESL Services Coordinator

As an ESL writing consultant, I coach international and immigrant student writers, helping them not only to adjust to academic writing expectations but also to enjoy the experience of writing cross-culturally. Over the course of their academic programs, many improve their control of composition and grammar while deepening their appreciation of English and the art of writing in any language. 

As ESL Services Coordinator, I train other writing consultants to work sensitively and effectively with non-native writers, and I communicate with faculty about the nature of developing proficiency in second language writers. In addition, I develop tools and programs to better assist our diverse population of ESL and international students with academic writing.

Adam Corbin, Student Manager

Having lived most of my life in West Africa as a missionary kid, surrounded by a diversity of cultures and languages other than my own, my work environment at the Writing Center might appear somewhat demographically homogenous by comparison. However, even discounting the large number of international and ESL students who visit the center on a regular basis, I find that my background helps me appreciate the fact that each student who walks through our doors brings with her a unique set of experiences and values that has shaped her character, her ideas, her desires, and thus, her writing. As student manager, I find myself privileged to be at the hub of such a busy thoroughfare of diverse perspectives and voices and to have the opportunity to engage, along with my fellow consultants, as a participant in the conversation.
