Hey I’m Damon. I chose to major in Wildlife Sciences after hunting, fishing, and being out in nature my entire life. Besides being outside, I also enjoy listening to music, reading, and writing poetry. Come see me at the Writing Center if you need any help on your assignments!
Hello, my name is Emerson Rondinone. I am a psychology major at Paul Smith’s College, but I am open to learning about almost anything. Throughout my college career so far, I have gotten experience writing in many different styles and formats. Besides being a writing tutor, I enjoy reading, playing music, and learning new skills. Let me know if I can help with your writing!
Hey everybody! My name is Evan and I’m a Marine Corps veteran and a junior in the NRCM program. I like to paddle, snowshoe, fish, shoot, and hunt in my spare time. But I’m also an avid reader and writer. I enjoy helping people with anything in their writing from grammar to finding their voice. Let me know what I can do to help you by sending an email to email@example.com or making an appointment with me on Starfish! I’m looking forward to helping you!
Hi everyone! I’m Shannon. Currently, I am a sophomore 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 firstname.lastname@example.org DropBox if you need any assistance with formatting, editing, or developing an argument!
Hi, I’m Natalie! I am a Writing Tutor and a CARE Peer Educator in the counseling center. I have a major in Natural Resource Conservation Management, and a minor in Forestry. In my free time I enjoy hiking, birdwatching, and skiing.
