Kathy Whitham, Writing Center Coordinator and English Faculty
Kathy, currently the Writing Center Coordinator, is a tenured English instructor who has taught composition, literature, and film studies at South Seattle College since 2004. “As a teacher, my goal is to encourage all my students to discover the power of their own voices and express themselves as writers—whether it’s in a personal essay, research paper, literary analysis, or business letter.
Jennifer is a writer and English instructor who teaches Creative Writing and Composition at South Seattle College. She has been tutoring students in the Writing Center since 2002.
I have been tutoring at South since 2005 and still find the process engaging and personally fulfilling. It is a privilege to get to know students through their writing and do what I can to help their skills develop. My qualifications include spending a lot of time in school writing papers (undergrad degree in Human Biology and Economics and Masters Degrees in Health Administration and Social Work), completing several writing courses and a UW certificate in non-fiction writing, and many late nights giving my now grown kids editorial advice that they resented, but ultimately used! — Mary Code
I have been privileged to earn my living with words throughout my professional life, be it as an author of fiction or a 'pen for hire.' For me writing is synonymous with the search for meaning. Every sentence, every phrase, has a music all its own. I enjoy mentoring young writers – their voices are fresh and need to be heard. — Joyce Yarrow
