Meet Our Writing Tutors

Shannon McPheeters

Hi everyone! I’m Shannon. Currently, I am a senior in the NRCM program here at Paul Smith’s, but Virginia is my home state. In my free time, I am always outdoors, reading, or both! I am most familiar with MLA and APA formats in literary analyses and argumentative writing; however, I would love to broaden my writing skills in other formats and types of writing. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me or any of our other writing tutors on Starfish or the DropBox if you need any assistance with formatting, editing, or developing an argument! 


Abigail Johnson


Hey, I’m Abby. I am currently a sophomore here at Paul Smith’s and major in Park and Conservation Management. In my free time, I go on a lot of hikes, hoping to become an ADK 46er during my time at college. I also enjoy reading and writing, especially about topics related to nature and environmentalism. Make an appointment through Starfish, and I will happily assist you with any of your writing needs!


Ariah Mitchell

Hey, my name’s Ariah! I’m a sophomore here, dual majoring in Environmental Studies and Communication. I absolutely love the outdoors, as well as reading, drawing, memes, video games, and writing of course! No matter the class, I’d love to help you out with any of your writing assignments. Drop by the CACS during my office hours (Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3-5) or book an appointment with me on Starfish for any assistance you may need.


Abigail Burk

Hi, my name is Abi. I’m a freshman this year in the Environmental Science program at PSC. I’m originally from Pennsylvania and I love SCUBA diving, being outdoors, and travelling around the world. I also love reading and writing and would love to help you be the best writer you can be! Book an appointment with me or any of our other wonderful writing tutors on Starfish.
