Stafford Davis is a first-year PhD student in philosophy with an interest in aesthetics and the Philosophy of language. He enjoys working with diverse forms of composition and aspires to help students convey their thoughts into lucid writing.
Wing Tan Lai is a second-year PhD student in English focusing on medieval literature, with a special interest in Arthurian romance in both the French and the English traditions. She is also an avid reader of Chaucer who completed her MA thesis about the poet and Mars at Oxford University. As a WC tutor, Wing enjoys tutoring students from all disciplines and has a passion for working with literary analysis. She aims to support students’ writing journeys throughout by giving them constructive feedback. In her free time, she is an amateur street photographer. She also loves to write silly poems and watch a lot of movies from the ‘20s to the ‘60s.
Hardik Yadav is a first-year PhD student in English. While he is interested in all things English-language, he is keener about its queer, postcolonial, and modernist bearings. Previously he tutored at Lehman College’s Academic Center for Excellence in the Bronx and contributed to the college’s literary magazine, Obscura, in his recurrent section “Cinémondays with Hardik.” Now after having lost most human interaction (since you-know-when), he looks forward to thinking together.
