Karin Killough has worked in SUNY Plattsburgh’s Claude J. Clark Learning Center for over 20 years. In that time, she has had the good fortune to work with thousands of students — from brief interactions while scheduling a tutoring appointment to ongoing supervisory relationships with peer tutors. Each day brings about new opportunities to be a part of a student’s success and to make sure that they feel welcomed, valued and supported.

Karin enjoys spending time with her son and their dog. A favorite activity involves visiting family in central and western New York.

Regan was swept across the Nebraska prairie to the shores of Lake Champlain at SUNY Plattsburgh in the spring of 2020. She has been involved in writing tutoring and consulting since 2012, and holds a B.A. in English and French language and culture from Aquinas College and an M.A. in English, focusing on composition and rhetoric from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

She manages the writing tutors and teaches ENG390: Theories and Practice of Writing Tutoring, in addition to giving writing workshops around campus. Her favorite thing about peer tutoring is watching a tutee’s eyes light up when something “clicks” for them.

Diane Jennette-Costin, Office Assistant II

Diane graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from SUNY Plattsburgh in 1997, majoring in in-vitro cell biology and biotechnology. She chose not to go into her field of study and jumped into the work force. After seven years, Diane was able to return to SUNY Plattsburgh as a staff member for a promotional position.

Her favorite part of her job is student contact. She loves meeting new people and helping others, and if Diane doesn’t know the answer to a question, she will find someone who will! — (But she always has answers if you have questions about her rescue cats!)

She has worked in several areas of the college but has been with the academic advising office and the Learning Center in a shared position for 10 years. She loves the interaction with students and the satisfaction of seeing the students excel when working with the LC tutors.

Wendy loves to travel and she has visited England, France and Ireland. She looks forward to future trips and spending time with her dogs, Dallas and Dakota.

Samruddhi is the Learning Center’s graduate assistant and the main contact for all students wishing to become peer tutors.

Other than academics, she loves the ocean, trees, and basically everything nature — she has adjusted to the Adirondacks perfectly. She also pets almost every dog she sees!
