JessicaI'm a tutor who is currently based out of Ann Arbor, Michigan, where I enjoy reading, cooking, and spending time exploring the outdoors when I'm not working with students. I have my bachelor's degree in English from the University of Michigan-Dearborn, where I also received a minor in history. I also have my associates degree in business from Henry Ford Community College. Currently, I'm finishing up my master's degree in English and educational technology at Morehead State University. I'm deeply passionate about teaching composition and creative writing. I'd like to one day teach these subjects at the undergraduate level. At work, I'm often sought out by coworkers for help with writing and editing. I've been asked multiple times to train coworkers throughout my company on the various technologies that we use. I'm also a mother of three children, whom I've tutored in various subjects for as long as I can remember. I consider myself to be a very patient tutor. I believe in guiding my students towards the correct answer, but letting them figure it out for themselves. I think this improves my students' critical thinking abilities, which will help them throughout their academic careers. Let me know if you'd like to work with me to help you find success in academics and reach your goals!

JacobI went to the University of Michigan to earn my bachelor's degree in biophysics, graduating in the honors program. While the University of Michigan, I had the opportunity to tutor and teach students in beginning science courses. After I graduated, I tutored full-time while doing clinical research as well. I believe every student is smart, but not every student can deal well with classroom learning. Many students have their own learning styles that must be matched by myself as the tutor to help them learn effectively. I enjoy helping students fill in the gaps in their knowledge and make progress towards full understanding of course material and tests. In my free time, I like to exercise, study philosophy, follow politics, and read.

EricI have a doctoral degree in modern European history, and education has been an important part of my life for the past two decades. I see myself as a lifelong learner, and I encourage my students to develop a love of learning as well. As a tutor, I provided encouragement and support to help students reach their goals. I work hard to make my sessions interesting and fun. I want my students to have a strong understanding of the subject so they can apply their knowledge now and in the future. I can tutor reading, writing, essays, history, phonics, literature, English grammar, geography, government and politics, anthropology, religions, and IB and AP level humanities coursework. In my free time, I love traveling and studying history. I also enjoy taking in films, theater, music, art, and literature. I collect antiques, stamps, books, seashells, and bottles, and I also enjoy architecture.
