I teach; I tutor; and I motivate (I hope). I’ve been teaching and tutoring Composition and Literature at Sullivan University since the fall of 2002. I enjoy helping students succeed in class and helping them realize their goals beyond the classroom also. When I’m not doing that, I’m spending time with my husband and two young daughters. I love books (suspense, mystery, character driven) and music (rock, punk, and other rock variations). Please let me know how I can help you! (snichter@sullivan.edu)

I have been working at Sullivan University since 2006 as a Math tutor. I do my best to make what seems like rocket science easy. It is my goal that every student I work with walks out with an understanding of the material covered as well as being able to apply it. I graduated from Sullivan University in 2007 with a B.S. in Business Admin. and Management with a focus in Accounting. I am in the tutoring center Monday through Thursday until at least 4:00 PM except Tuesday, which I leave at 3:00 PM. If you have any questions for me you can e-mail me at jbehr@sullivan.edu

My name is Elisabeth, but most people call me Lily. I have been working at Sullivan University for just over a year now as a computer tutor. I am also currently a student at Sullivan. I understand the pressure of meeting deadlines, the frustration of not being able to figure out a problem, and the stress that is created from trying to balance school, work, and family. I will always try to help with whatever I can. I can help with most things from helping debug a program to teaching how to format an APA header properly on the computer. Please do not hesitate to stop by and see me, I am here to help. “Do or do not, there is no try” -Yoda. I am sorry Yoda, but I disagree, there is most certainly a try. :)

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry/Biology from the University of Louisville in 1969, as well as my registry as a Medical Technologist from the American Society of Clinical Pathologists.
