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 both writing (W) and public speaking (PS); some also work on visual communication (VC). Keep these codes in mind when making appointments online (each tutor’s name is marked accordingly there, too).
Our professional staff members have particular roles and expertise. Maya and Peter work with multilingual students or English Language Learners (ELL). Emily Cornell du Houx works with graduate students on the written thesis (GWT). Meredith and Jen 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.
