Graduate Assistants

Marin Grant

Marin Grant

As a tutor and a writer myself, I love to help students with big projects and to provide an attentive audience for their work. Whether their task is creative, analytical, or both, I love to help students find an approach to writing that suits them, as well as specific strategies that support their confidence and their ability to work on their own. With my background in creative writing, I specialize in helping students analyze and reflect on their own words, and discover the impact they can have.

My name is Sam Hyatt and I am in my first year of the M.A. in English here at Winthrop. This past May, I graduated from Winthrop with a B.A. in English, and I am so excited to be a part of the graduate program as well as a GA in the Writing Center. After completing this degree, I have plans to teach freshman English and writing classes while working toward to obtaining my Ph.D. I look forward to working with you soon!


Stephanie Martin

Stephanie Martin

Hello, my name is Stephanie! The gentleman accompanying me in the photo is my Fiancé, Lake. With his encouragement, I am entering my first year as a graduate student in English. My B.A. degree is in English education, so I am passionate about teaching students and am prepared to help with students with diverse learning needs. Additionally, since I had the pleasure of completing my undergrad at Winthrop, I’ve studied under Dr. Hoffman and Dr. Sommers in creative writing and creative nonfiction, making me more adept in tutoring students in those areas. However, my interests also branch outside of the English major as I am also prepared to tutor students in writing scientific papers. I can’t wait to help students become the best writers they can be!

Bryn Smyth

Bryn Smyth

Hello, all! My name is Bryn Smyth and I am a senior English major with a minor in educational studies. I am the editor-in-chief of Winthrop’s student newspaper, the Johnsonian, and I am also a resume and research associate at the Center for Career Development & Internships. This is my second semester tutoring here at the Writing Center. I am so excited to meet tons of new faces and read lots of exciting writing! I would love to meet with you during any stage of your writing process, but my very favorite stage is the outline stage. I find organizing an outline to be as intriguing as completing a puzzle. The type of writing I am most comfortable with includes critical writing, media writing, and creative writing. I am a lover of classic literature, kitties, and being there for YOU and your writing!
