About Our Tutors
We employ both peer and professional tutors in the ASC, and we work closely with faculty
members to provide assistance that in linked to particular courses. All tutors, peer
and professional are evaluated by USCL faculty to determine their level of expertise.
Subject Areas: Computer Science, Spanish, and Writing.
Originally from Flower Mound, Texas, my college adventure began in 2013 where I studied
interior design and architecture at the University of Arkansas for two years. I spent
an additional year at the University of North Texas focusing on fine art and design.
Having always had a strong passion for art as well as teaching children, I decided
to switch gears and pursue an elementary education degree after becoming a parent
myself. I have been a student at USCL since 2018 and am currently in the Palmetto
Program with USC. Working in the ASC gives me the opportunity to interact with students
in a professional and personal manner. I also feel I am preparing myself for the
role of an educator by trying to best meet the needs of my peers, and ultimately help
them gain confidence and be prepared for their courses. Outside of school, I spend
most of my time playing with my daughter and exploring nature when the weather permits.

Subject Areas: Biology, Chemistry, Statistics, Italian, and Nursing.
I am from Rock Hill, South Carolina. Upon graduation in 2017, I wanted to pursue
a degree in higher education. I decided to go to college at USCL to get my Bachelor
of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. I became a tutor in the ASC because one of my
teachers recommended me for the ASC. I have been tutoring for about one year, and
it has been an enjoyable experience. I like working as a tutor because I get to interact
and work with many different students. Make an appointment or drop by to see how
I can help. In my free time, I usually draw, read, or spend time with my family.
Subject Area: Math.
I am originally from Seneca, SC, but spent most of my youth in North Carolina. I earned
my BS degree in Mathematics from East Carolina University in Greenville, NC, then
married my high school sweetheart and moved to Hagerstown, MD. After my husband’s
tour of duty in the army ended, we moved here to Lancaster where I taught mathematics
at Buford High School until I retired in 2010. During my time at BHS, I earned my
MAT degree in Mathematics from Winthrop University. Once retired, my friend and former
colleague, Betty Stroud, encouraged me to come to USCL and apply for a tutoring position
in the ASC. I’m so glad I did!! It is so rewarding to work with the students I’ve
met here, as well as, to see and talk with some of my former students from Buford
High School. With my 34 years of experience in teaching high school mathematics, I
think I am able to communicate well with the students I encounter in the ASC.
Subject Area: Chemistry, Spanish, and Writing.
After completing my first two years of college at USCL, I graduated from USC in May
2015 with a BA in philosophy. I am currently a graduate student at Columbia International
University, pursuing an MA in theological studies with a concentration in Koine Greek.
Because I was homeschooled for a number of years, I had no idea of what to expect
when I began college, but I had a very rewarding, productive experience at USCL, and
I learned a great deal about which direction I wanted to take as a student. I thoroughly
enjoy working as a tutor in the ASC, which I have been doing for the past four years.
I tutor writing, Spanish, and general chemistry, and I have a unique interest for
each of these subjects. There are few things I enjoy more than helping students succeed
academically in areas which challenge them, and I often find that I learn quite a
bit during the process as well. Whenever I’m outside the classroom, I enjoy jogging,
weightlifting, playing bass guitar, and researching medieval philosophy.
Subject Area: French and Writing.
Having taught a French course at USC-L in spring 2012, I was pleased to be given a
chance to tutor in the ASC. I missed teaching French and English students at Andrew
Jackson High and am enjoying seeing and helping former students and meeting new ones.
I have a BA degree from Western Carolina and a Master’s from Francis Marion plus 30
more hours from Winthrop. When I am not in the ASC, you will typically find me on
the golf course, in my yard, reading a book, or out with friends. My husband and I
like to travel and go as often as time and dollars permit! Baton Rouge is a regular
visit for us since my daughter, her husband, and three great grandchildren live there.
Drop by the ASC for me to help you with either French or writing.
Subject Area: Writing
I was born in Matthews, NC but I grew up in Lancaster, SC. I graduated from Lancaster
High School in 2017 and enrolled at USCL in the fall of that year. I am currently
pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Nursing and plan on obtaining it entirely through
USCL. I decided to become a writing tutor when I helped proofread some of my friends’
papers and they suggested that I should work in the ASC. I have been working in the
ASC since the fall semester of 2018 and have enjoyed helping fellow students become
more successful in their writing across various subjects. So stop by and let me help
with your writing needs. Outside of the ASC, I enjoy playing pickup basketball, watching
sports, and playing video games. I am also a USCL Peer Advisor and help with numerous
campus activities such as Registration and Orientation.
Subject Area: Math
I am originally from Wilmington, North Carolina where I received my BA degree from
Wilmington College (currently UNCW). While attending Wilmington College I met and
married by husband, Samuel K. Page of Woodruff, SC. Sam was an outstanding pitcher
for Wilmington College and led them to a National Junior College National Championship.
Pursuing a career as a coach and athletic director, my husband and I moved to five
different locations in North Carolina and South Carolina from 1967 to 1984– Wilmington,
Charleston, Estill, Shallotte, and ended up at Buford High School in Lancaster in
1984. We have three beautiful daughters and four wonderful grandchildren. I started
tutoring at USCL in the fall of 2017 thanks to the encouragement of a dear friend
and colleague of 26 years, Ann Garner, who also tutors math at USCL. I have had a
wonderful experience thus far tutoring in the Academic Success Center and the job
has been instrumental in filling a huge void in my life. I love working with students
and helping them to understand the wonderful world of mathematics.
