Hey! I’m Hillary, and I am going to be entering my junior year as a Biology major. I will be tutoring introductory level Biology and Chemistry. Taking science classes are challenging, and there are numerous times when I did not fully understand everything that I was responsible for learning. I had discovered that the Center for Student Success offered tutoring for the classes I took, and I took advantage of every opportunity. From personal experience, I understand how difficult science classes are and, hopefully, I can provide the supplemental help needed to help you guys excel in these classes!

Hello! My name is Allie (she/her/hers) and I am a geology major with a Spanish minor and am expecting to graduate in spring 2021. My position at CSS is an online chemistry tutor.

Hi everyone! My name is Arya and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I am currently a sophomore at SUNY New Paltz with a major in Economics and double minors in History and French. I chose to join the CSS because I know how challenging it can be to learn a new language and I want to make that process easier and more enjoyable. Since not every student learns the same way, I intend to adapt to the learning needs and styles of the student in order to help them effectively. I look forward to working with students in improving and enhancing their French! After college, I don't have anything specific I want to do but I hope to be working on improving the education policy across the country or working with lower income students.

Hi! My name is Doug, and I am currently a Spanish and Italian tutor here at the Center for Student Success. My major is Spanish, with a minor in Italian Studies.

In my spare time I like to read (Game of Thrones is my favorite book series), to play videogames, and to do outdoor activities (hiking is my favorite). If you ever need any help with languages, please do not hesitate to ask me!

I am a subject tutor for FRN 101, 102, 201, and 202. I have always loved language, but I know French can be really tough, what with the strange pronunciations and complex grammar.

In my spare time, I enjoy drawing, writing, and learning other languages—I’ve studied Japanese and Vietnamese in addition to French. I also work at Sojourner Truth Library, so feel free to stop by and say hello over there! I look forward to working through French conjugation with you.

I also really enjoyed Mathematics for Elementary School Teachers 1 because I plan on becoming an elementary school teacher. I decided to apply to become a peer tutor because I love working with others and helping students learn something new as well as seeing others grasp a concept they did not fully understand before. Some of my hobbies include playing tennis and badminton, playing my flute, and reading outside on a nice day.
Hi everyone! My name is Ash (they/them/theirs). I’m a subject peer tutor in PSY275 (Psychological Statistics) here at CSS. I am currently a junior studying psychology with a minor in women’s, gender, and sexuality studies. After I graduate I hope to enroll in a graduate program with a focus on research and quantitative psychology. In my free time, I like playing video games, watching movies and TV, reading up on current events in politics and science, and going out to eat.

Hey! My name is Emely, I am from the Dominican Republic and I am a student here at SUNY New Paltz. I am going into my junior year with a major in Psychology and a minor in Women Studies and Sociology. I am currently a Psychological Statistics subject tutor and also a PASC (peer academic success coach) at the CSS. When I first took Psychological Statistics Fall’17 of my sophomore year I was overwhelmed because everyone kept warning me about this class when in reality it was nothing to be overwhelmed about! I believe that if you put the time and effort into anything, you will likely succeed. I am looking forward to working with my fellow peers and helping them understand that Psychological Statistics isn’t as difficult as others portray it to be. And if it does become a challenge I am more than happy to help them overcome such challenge.
