QianaI earned my undergraduate degree from Central Michigan University in English and history and my graduate degree from Bowling Green State University in fine arts. I have taught communication, English, and sociology at the collegiate level and I love working with students of all ages. I currently offer tutoring services in reading, writing, essay editing, literature, English grammar and syntax, English, public speaking, US and world history, African history, African-American history, European history, social studies, creative writing, and comparative literature. My teaching philosophy is centered on my responsibility as an educator to help my students strengthen their foundational knowledge and help them develop the skills they need to study independently so they are able to achieve academic success in whatever area they decide to pursue. It is important that students not see the learning process as being segregated by subject or topic but rather as a life long process filled with interconnected pieces that are presented in different subject areas. When students are able to do this they become more sure of themselves and their ability to face any educational challenge they may encounter in the future. Education has the potential to open so many doors for those who are willing to become lifelong learners, and I love being part of that journey.

NatalieI'm a student at the University of Michigan, where I study screen arts and cultures, creative writing, and English. My tutoring experience includes helping kindergarteners through 12th graders with writing and reading. I love to write myself, so I'm invested in helping students hone the creative writing and essay skills. I use a lot of interactive tools and other resources in our sessions so that students are stimulated with the material in many different ways. When I have free time, I like to write, read, produce films, and listen to music.

LauraI graduated from Adrian College with an undergraduate degree in arts management. I tutored as a high school student and as a college student, and I'm looking forward to working with the Peace Corps to teach English. My tutoring specialties include ACT preparation, literacy and reading comprehension, writing, and English. I'm a lifelong learner, and I want to share that sentiment with my students to help them develop a love of learning as well. When I have free time, I like to read, dance, and go out to see live concerts.
