For the past thirteen years, I have been the Tutorial/ADA Services Coordinator at Peru State. My responsibilities include: Assisting students who self-identify with learning or physical disabilities; hiring, training, supervising and scheduling peer tutors who work in the walk-in tutoring lab, the math lab, and evening tutoring hours for study groups in the library; administering assessments for college placement and to fulfill graduation requirements; and administering the ACT, CLEP, and Praxis Series exams.
Many free services are offered to students, so I also let them know what services are available and where to find help. My door is always open for students, staff members, and visitors to this beautiful campus.
When I am not at work, I enjoy living in Peru and taking part in community activities. Since my family members are scattered from Germany to Washington state, I also love to travel. My daughter and granddaughter constantly amaze me with their wonderful accomplishments, so I have to admit to wishing I lived closer to them . . . or they lived closer to me.
My work is very fulfilling. I am fortunate to be able to see evidence of each student’s incredible growth over the period of four years; what a great opportunity!
