About Terren: At Walden I enjoy engaging with students, staff, and faculty to continually improve the university experience and apply the mission of positive social change through collaboration and new initiatives. Supporting student success is the mission of the Academic Skills Center and I believe by providing a variety of high quality services we can continually meet and adapt to the needs of our students. I have several years’ experience as an Academic Advisor and a background in Tutoring Services as a Graduate Assistant at St. Cloud State University. Outside of Walden, I enjoy volunteering as a tutor and mentor for Latino youth in academics and college preparation.

About Kim: I have a BA in Psychology with a minor in Art Therapy from Marymount College of Fordham University and a MS in School/Community Psychology from the College of New Rochelle in NY. I came to Walden as a student in 2008 and graduated in 2011 with a MS in Psychology, specializing in research and program evaluation. In 2012 I re-enrolled at Walden to pursue a doctorate in Research Psychology. Prior to being Coordinator with tutoring services, I worked as a research peer mentor supporting students in research methods, statistics, and SPSS. My goal as Coordinator is to provide students who come to services a student-centered experience to help make their academic journey at Walden a more personal and supportive one.
