Dr. Lydia Wazir Dr. Lydia Wazir-Staubmann Head of the Writing Center

I love to teach writing. I have been involved in some form of writing or teaching of writing for all my professional life and I never get tired of it. Writing is the way we connect our ideas, emotions, and lives with one another. As a teacher I believe that the only way to teach effectively is to listen carefully to what students have to say and work with their writing so it expresses their ideas, not ours. I also believe that writing can be fun and fulfilling, even as it is hard work, and I hope that our Writing Center provides opportunities for students to realize such moments and achievements. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, and baking.

Working with the WUV Writing Center is one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. I like helping students with all the different stages of the writing process, and helping students realize that they have what it takes to be successful writers. When I’m not tutoring or teaching, I enjoy running, bowling, and spending time with my wife and son.

I enjoy helping students become better writers. Writing has always been one of my favorite ways to express myself. Writing well is an important skill that will serve you well regardless of the career path you take. In my free time I enjoy running, skiing, tennis, yoga, playing the piano and going to concerts. I also love to travel and experience new cultures.
