Congrats to Bridget, Sami, and Alex, who are graduating this year! Thank you for all of your hard work and for the meaningful impact you've made on Trinity students.
Our tutors have been chosen for their exemplary facility with language and the writing process. They are also cool. Here is a little more about each of them:
Bridget Bey is a senior studying Anthropology and English. She has been a teaching assistant in both English and Anthropology, assisted with English research, planned a Medieval English symposium in the fall of 2015 with a Trinity Professor, and participated in archeological field work in Italy and Mexico. She is from Jackson, Mississippi and enjoys running, reading, and finding new restaurants in San Antonio. If you have any recommendations, stop by the Writing Center and let her know.
Sami Heffner is a senior from Houston, TX. She is an English and History double major with a minor in Spanish. She has served as a peer tutor for the seminar portion of HUMA and has been helping friends with their writing since high school. Last semester, she studied abroad in London, England, at Queen Mary University of London. And when she isn't studying or writing papers, she spends her free time reading and writing stories, surfing the Internet, and trying to find the best burger in San Antonio.
Jessica Phillips is a junior from Austin, TX who is majoring in English and also studying Mandarin Chinese. She has been a peer tutor for the First Year Experience “Arts and Ideas” and has always enjoyed helping her friends and classmates improve their writing abilities.

Alex Rojas is a senior majoring in English and following the pre-med track. As an avid reader and amateur writer, she's been editing her friends’ papers since long before college and found the Writing Center to be the best possible job for her. Along with editing essays, she loves reading, taking naps, Batman and Bill Miller's sweet tea.
