Hi! My name is Mia E., and I love carrot cake, the color orange makes me happy, and my sister and brother are my best friends! I have been teaching children (ages K-12) through summer programs, babysitting, and supplemental educational programming since my time as a student at Tougaloo College. Additionally, while attending graduate school at Brown University, I was able to teach acting, playwriting, and Shakespeare to children of all ages. While tutoring is new to me, providing homework assistance, guidance, and mentoring in the past has given me the tools necessary to pursue being a tutor now and in the future.
What I love about tutoring is that it is personal, tailored assistance provided to students in need. I remember the help I received with homework when I was in school, and it made such a difference in my confidence surrounding the subjects I was learning and taught me how to use the knowledge I gained to my advantage and for my personal growth. I hope that the students I tutor will have a similar and even more positive experience than what I had.
As a homework helper for an eight year old girl that I was babysitting while living in NY, a summer teacher of playwrighting for fourth and fifth graders, a mentor for a boy in second grade via the Boys and Girls Club, and as a counselor and teaching artist for an at risk youth program and summer theater camp, I have accrued an array of teaching and mentoring experience.

Science exists in layers, building on a foundation like any other subject, and I believe that the understanding of this allows me to tutor science in a wa
Mia is a highly intelligent, skillful, co-creative teacher
I am working with Mia to develop my writing, speaking, and teaching strategies. What I have learned so far is that Mia leans on her rich multi-disciplinary arts background in academics, musics, acting, movement, and singing to skillfully guide you towards your goal. Additionally, she brings a deep understanding of breathwork, imagery, and playfulness to help you learn how to sync the mind, body, and breath. So far, she has taught me specific breathing exercises, writing practices, and visualization tools to help improve my rhythm, timing, and balance in my written, oral, and leadership skills. Her passion and love for learning are contagious, you will leave the lesson excited to implement the new strategies into your daily routine.Jill, 1 lesson with Mia

The best tutor I have ever had!
Mia is organized, confident, thoughtful, and attentive. She listens carefully to what I am hoping to gain from each lesson, and works hard to help me achieve that. She is a great communicator and is both appropriately demanding and rigorous while also patient and compassionate.Nathan, 13 lessons with Mia
