Joanna Collins joined the College MatchPoint team in the summer of 2016. She has a wonderful gift for helping students who don’t like to write. “I enjoy helping student athletes, multilingual writers, and students with learning differences achieve their writing goals,” she said.

 

A Dallas-Fort Worth native, Joanna earned her BA in Humanities from UT and her doctorate in English from the University of Pittsburgh, with a certificate in Composition, Rhetoric, and Pedagogy. While at Pitt, she also taught first-year writing and literature courses, and served as a consultant in the writing center. Her love of the "'Burgh" notwithstanding, Joanna eventually headed back to Austin and her original alma mater to work at UT’s International Office, coordinating college preparatory programs for students from the Middle East. Aside from her commitment to helping all students build confidence and competence as writers, Joanna is also devoted to eating Tex-Mex, seeing live music, and hiking the Greenbelt with her dog, Birdie.
