New Doctoral Writing Consultant!
Posted: February 12, 2014
Doctoral students at APU have the exciting opportunity to meet with Dr. Basil Considine, our newest Writing Consultant, who is available online.
Dr. Considine joins us from Boston University, where he was a senior graduate tutor and ESL specialist at BU's College of Arts and Sciences Writing Center. He brings with him more than a decade of experience working in distance education and writing instruction, a scholarly background in the social sciences and humanities, and special expertise in working with non-native English speakers and other non-traditional students.
In his words, "What we do at the Writing Center is help students to communicate clearly, convincingly, and effectively. It doesn't matter what you study, what your native language is, or whether you're looking for help at the very start of a writing project or near the end – just make an appointment and you'll be surprised at what can be done in 60 minutes."
Dr. Considine is available to work with any enrolled doctoral student, including students who might require assistance in developmental or foundational writing.
You can work with Dr. Considine online in real time or by submitting a paper and receiving feedback via email. Doctoral students interested in making appointments with Basil should call the Writing Center at (626) 815-6000 ext. 3141.
