Faculty Coordinator

My name is Dana Armstrong, and I am the faculty coordinator of the West Sacramento Writing Center. My education began at Modesto Junior College where I took advantage of several work- and study-abroad programs. I eventually transferred to U.C. Berkeley where I studied Comparative Literature. After graduating, I lived in Mexico for five months, studying Spanish and traveling around the country. I earned my graduate degree from U.C. Davis and have also taken Composition courses at San Francisco State University. I began my teaching career at Chabot College in Hayward and now have been teaching at Sacramento City College for nearly twenty years.

Instructional Assistant

Hi! My name is Nick Stockman. I graduated from UC Davis in 2015 with a Bachelor’s degree in English. For the past four years, I have been substitute teaching in Placer County, working primarily in elementary and middle schools. I now attend Sac State, where I am working towards a Master’s degree in Creative Writing and a certificate in Teaching Composition. I’m planning on pursuing a PhD in literature afterwards, which will enable me––hopefully!––to teach English at the university level. When I’m not at school or tutoring at the WSC Writing Center, I’m usually at a coffeeshop reading, in the studio recording music, or at home watching movies. If you have any questions or simply want to talk (about writing, books, music, films, etc.), please feel free to drop in or email me.

Hello everyone! My name is David Velez, and this is only my second semester as a writing tutor for the WSWC but my second year as an SCC student. I am majoring in Kinesiology. I have had some amazing experiences at the West Sac Writing Center. I am excited to be back at it again. Feel free to contact me if you need any help. If I don't know the answer, I know people who will––so your question will not go unanswered. I enjoy working with others and look forward to working and learning alongside you. Let's have a great semester!
