Tutor About  
Carter Adams

I am nonbinary and use they/them pronouns. I am a sophomore here at Alfred studying Spanish and English. With these majors, I hope to become a Spanish/English teacher and travel around South America teaching English. I came to Alfred from New Hampshire in order to have a college experience where collaboration and community are cherished. I look forward to meeting and working with all of you as we continue this journey together.

Emily McClintock

I am a graduate student in Mental Health Counseling. I completed my BA at Ohio State with majors in English and Sexuality Studies. If you see me around campus I am usually rushing from one thing to another as there never seem to be enough hours in the day. On the rare occasion I can find some free time, I'll be found with a YA book in my hand or crocheting to keep my hands busy.

Kristina Roberts

I am a Biomaterials Engineering major. I love math, but I also have a deep appreciation for the importance of words and communication in our society. I enjoy the analytical approach to formal writing, finding a way to connect creative expression with professional intentions. Aside from doing schoolwork, I am an active member of the Alfred University Track and Field team, having formed a passion for triple jumping. (Krissy is on co-op for the spring 2019 semester. She will be back in fall 2019.)

Angela VanBuskirk I’m majoring in English. An introvert at heart, I have an uncanny knack for transforming myself into a blanket burrito and have been known to contemplate the many perplexities of the universe for hours on end. When I’m not writing fiction or devouring another novel, I love going on adventures with my dog, Pandora. Angela in a field
Vicky Westacott I am the director of the Writing Center.  I love to work with all writers on all kinds of projects.  I always enjoy the great conversations about writing that happen here.  I have degrees in Modern Greek and applied linguistics and I have taught technical writing, writing for artists, writing I, English as a second language, linguistics, and grammar.
