My name is Andrew Kragie and I’m a sophomore at Duke (probably) majoring in Public Policy with a certificate in Latin American Studies.  I wanted to become a writing tutor to pass on a lesson I learned from my freshman writing class: Writing is a process, not a product.  This means that our work can always be improved, and it also relieves some of the pressure we feel when starting an assignment because we know it doesn’t have to be perfect the first time around.  I’m also interested in honing my own writing and revision skills while helping others with their work.  Fun fact: This summer I met an 80-year-old couple in the NC mountains who cleared their own land, built a trout farm, and collected thousands of Indian arrowheads.  They were pretty amazing.
