Meet the CLASS Tutors

Chemistry Peer Tutor

I am a Junior majoring in Biology born and raised in Portland, Oregon. I do Judo and run/coach the Judo Club on campus. I like tutoring very much because it offers another resource for students to practice and understand materials learned in class.

My major is Education and Learning with a minor and endorsement in TESOL/ESOL. I enjoy tutoring because I believe it is a great resource for all students and I take satisfaction from watching students understand things better.

Mathematics Peer Tutor

I am a Mathematics Major and Computer Science Minor. A fun fact about me is that I play the flute in Pacific’s Symphonic Band. I like tutoring because I like to help people learn.

Chemistry Peer Tutor

I am currently pursuing majors in Biology and Chemistry. One of my favorite hobbies is going skiing in the winter. I like tutoring because it allows me the opportunity to help my peers understand certain topics/subjects they are struggling with, and reinforces my retention as well.

Physical Therapy Peer Tutor

I'm going into my second year in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program. Outside of school, I am usually knitting, watching The Office, or playing with my dog. Tutoring allows me to help others understand subjects I'm passionate about.

Writing and Occupational Therapy Peer Tutor

I am a second year occupational therapy student from Mukilteo, Washington. Joining me in my tutoring sessions is my service dog, Nanuk— he is a four year old, hypoallergenic and non-shedding coton de tulear. When we are not in class or tutoring, you can find us in the mountains exploring new hiking and cross-country ski trails. I have always enjoyed my role as a student and am excited to share my love of learning with the students with whom I work!

Writing Peer Tutor

Hi there! My name is Cayla and I am a fourth year in the PsyD program. In my free time I enjoy cooking, reading, and hiking. As a tutor, I hope to help support Pacific students in their academic journeys and share the tips I've learned to be successful.

I'm a third year biology major looking forward to my second year of tutoring. I love dogs, baking and cooking, music, and watching sports.

Writing Peer Tutor

I'm entering my junior year as an English Literature major, and enjoy writing either for classes or just for fun. Speaking as both a tutor and tutored student, I'd say it's important to ask an outside eye to point out areas of improvement in your work that you would otherwise never have noticed, and to give you new ways to think about concepts that you're struggling with.

Writing Peer Tutor

I'm an environmental biology major/philosophy minor. I think tutoring is important because it helps students feel more confident in their schoolwork and abilities.

American Sign Language Peer Tutor

I am an Exercise Science major, on a Pre-Physical therapy track. I am from Seattle, WA, and this will be my first year as a tutor. I'm super excited to be part of CLASS this year because I want to help others succeed in classes also.

Spanish Peer Tutor

I am majoring in Spanish with a minor in business. This past spring semester, I had the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Spain, and while I was there, I taught English to elementary and middle school-aged kids. I am very passionate about teaching language to students.

Occupational Therapy Peer Tutor

I am a second year occupational therapy student with a passion for sustainability, dancing, and spending time with friends. I am a tutor because I recognize the mutual benefits that come from working collaboratively with other students. Graduate school is not easy! It is much better with a knowledgeable support system.

Accounting Peer Tutor

I am a Junior here at Pacific University majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting as well as minoring in Fine Arts. In any subject (but especially accounting) it's much easier to work through problems out loud and with someone else, so I'm excited to be an accounting tutor this year!

Writing Peer Tutor

I am a Creative Writing Major and a triple minor in Editing & Publishing, English Literature, and Integrated Media. My favorite color is yellow (not blue) and I have two cats named Richard Parker and Karou, both of whom are named after book characters. I think that tutoring (especially writing) is important because it’s one way for us to help people write down the ideas living in their head that just need a little help to get out into the world.

Foreign Language Teaching Assistant and French Tutor

I am the new French FLTA at Pacific. I graduated with a master's degree in Clinical Psychology last year and then I worked in a school with kids who have learning disabilities. I love jazz music, which I studied in Paris for 2 years. It will be my pleasure to provide help and support while you are learning French. A bientôt!

Physical Therapy Peer Tutor

Hello! I'm a second year physical therapy student, novice runner, cat mom, and creative writing major.

Foreign Language Teaching Assistant and German Tutor

I am 24 years old and have just recently finished my Master of Education for middle and high schools in Germany where I will be teaching English and Biology.
