MaryAs a tutor, I believe that dynamic learning ought to be individual since we are all the consequence of various backgrounds, educational levels, and objectives. Among the things I've learned in my life, I've discovered that just because I'm having trouble in a subject now, doesn't mean it has to stay that way. Depending on where I am in my life, subjects become easier based on my own experience, and what I've picked up along the way. While working with students, I want to make sure they truly learn and understand the material, and not simply memorize it. I'm studying at Michigan State University. Here, I'm getting my undergraduate degree in International Relations. I'm here to help students improve their Writing, Essay Editing, Grammar, College Essays, Government and Politics, Public Speaking, English, Social Studies, and high school and college level English. I'm also here to support anyone getting ready for the LSAT, and tutor those who need help with the essay portion or want to improve their Reading. In my free time, I love to watch different sports. I play tennis and love to get a work out in. I also make time to relax and spend time with friends whenever I can.

BrookeI earned my bachelor's degree from Tulane University, where I studied Art with a concentration on Theatre. While I was in college, and after, I helped introduce Shakespeare to students throughout New Orleans by working in a children's theatre. I then went on to become a science teacher for 5th graders in Texas. With these very different experiences, I have developed a tutoring style that focuses on each student's interests, strengths, and abilities. I use this to develop unique lessons and study plans for each of my tutoring students. I am qualified to tutor students in a wide variety of subjects, my favorites being history, science, and English/ literature. I am also able to tutor students in numerous IB and AP classes, and help them as they study for standardized exams like the ACT, among others. I like to use an artistic approach towards tutoring, as this allows my students to have enjoyable lessons that keep them engaged and excited about learning. I believe children do best when they receive "enrichment" education, going beyond the school syllabus to gain more knowledge and experience as their interests drive them. In addition to teaching and tutoring, I enjoy painting, cross stitching, sewing, and reading.

AdamI earned my biology degree from Oakland University, and of spent four years building experiences tutoring everyone from elementary school students to college students. Topics I've tutored range from reading comprehension to algebra to chemistry. Having a biology degree helps me be a better tutor, because I can draw on my experience in English, science, and math to help students understand topics. When I tutor students, I have them work through practice problems alongside me. I create these problems to focus on their strengths and areas of opportunity, with the overall goal of improving their comprehension of the subject.
