Josh Stickrod

Instructional Assistant

Hey everyone, my name is Josh Stickrod and I’ve been with Academic Coaching since Fall 2021. I also work in LB’s Writing Center as a writing assistant. I am an LB alumnus, graduating from here in 2019 with degrees in English and Journalism. In Spring 2021, I graduated from Oregon State with a BA in English. As a former student that completed many of his prerequisites and core classes as a Roadrunner, I have a lot of first-hand knowledge in regards to the expectations of various courses and disciplines at the college. This, paired with my experience as a tutor, has given me a unique perspective on several different assignments and classes. I’m honored to have this opportunity to work with anyone looking to further their educational goals. In addition to education, I am also deeply passionate about literature and creative writing so I frequently read and write in my spare time. I also love movies, video games, hiking, and playing basketball, among other things.
