Wesley Hood

Assistant Director for Learning Support


Wes joined the Student Academic Success Center in July 2022. Prior to that, he worked in tutoring and learning support centers at Villanova University and Rutgers University. Wes's passion for learning support and peer tutoring started during undergrad and grad school, where he worked as a peer tutor in his universities' writing centers. He earned his bachelor's degree from the University of Pittsburgh and his Master of Fine Arts from the University of New Hampshire. When he isn't at CMU you can find him writing or teaching creative nonfiction, doing the New York Times crossword, or out on his bike re-exploring the city he fell in love with during undergrad.
