Tatiana Glushko coordinates services within the Richard Wright Center (RWC), assists with training graduate and peer tutors, facilitates writing workshops for faculty, staff, and students at JSU, and tutors students one-on-one.

In 2004, Glushko came to Jackson State University as an exchange ESL instructor from Russia, where she taught English as a foreign language in the Department of English Philology and Translation at Amur State University. In 2006, she entered the Master’s program at JSU in English and began working as a graduate assistant and tutor in the Richard Wright Center. In the RWC, she held the position of coordinator of supplemental instruction (2009–2013) and served as interim director (Summer 2013). From 2009 to 2013, she also taught freshman composition courses in the Department of English and Modern Foreign Languages.

Glushko is a member of the Mississippi Writing Center Association (MSWCA) and International Writing Center Association (IWCA). Her research interests include writing center pedagogy and language difference in academic writing. Since 2014, in collaboration with Kathi Griffin, RWC director, Glushko has been involved in several research and writing projects: studying writing center effectiveness in developing students’ rhetorical awareness, developing an Open Education Resource for freshman composition courses (also with Shanna Smith, JSU English Department), and creating a textbook on academic writing in English for non-English majors (with Daoying Liu, Nantong University, China).

Most recently, Glushko presented on developing a vision for the writing center at the Mississippi Writing Center Association conference; on tradition, rhetoric, and language in the composition classroom at the HBCU Symposium at Howard University, Washington, DC; and on translingual practices in the writing center, as an invited speaker at the international conference at Amur State University, Russia. She and Griffin published on HBCUs and writing programs in the Composition Studies journal.
