Who We Are
A&L is staffed largely by peer tutors — undergraduate and graduate students with strong communication skills who also take part in ongoing training in tutoring theory and practice. (Interested in becoming a tutor? See links to undergrad posting and grad assistantship posting.) In the bios below, you’ll learn about each tutor’s major, interests, and focus areas. Most tutors work on writing (W), public speaking (PS), and visual communication (VC), unless otherwise indicated. Keep these codes in mind when making appointments online; they appear next to names of tutors who don’t work across all areas.
Our professional staff members have particular roles and expertise. Maya Krinsky and Peter Carney work with multilingual students or English Language Learners (ELL). Anne West works with graduate students on the written thesis (GWT). Meredith Barrett and Jen Liese consult on all topics; Jen’s special focus is student publications (PUB). Maya, Meredith, and Jen have some availability beyond noted hours on the schedule; e-mail directly for an appointment.
