My name is Bailey! I recently graduated from the University of Michigan where I majored in English, with a minor in Crime and Justice. I received academic honors and in addition, I was recognized as an Angell Scholar. I have always loved reading and throughout college, I found that I was equally passionate and excited about writing. I wrote for the Michigan Daily, a student newspaper, for all four years of college. In addition, I worked on creative writing pieces in various classes, and continue to write independently. I have a lot of experience tutoring in many different subjects. In high school, I was a leader of the National Honors Society, and I tutored for 3 years in many subjects including math, reading, and history. Throughout college, I tutored through nonprofit organizations based in Ann Arbor and Detroit. I also currently serve as the Vice President of Wolverine Tutors, which is a student-run organization on campus. In this role, I edit essays and tutor in various subjects online, with a focus on English Literature. I have edited numerous academic essays, including college application essays and graduate school personal statements.

I love providing feedback to students about their writing, and I feel encouraged to aid students in finding their own voice in their writing. I have worked with students on creative writing pieces, and I have helped them to edit short stories and other pieces of work for publication. All of these experiences have helped me develop skills to communicate what is working well in a piece, and what could be stronger. I hope to encourage and motivate students towards their goals, whether it be for class, a future career or job, or even for fun.

I have written a multitude of papers, articles, and stories throughout college, and all of my writing has improved immensely through the advice and assistance of educators and peers. In receiving such feedback, I feel I am equipped to be able to aid students through their own academic journeys. My English courses have given me a strong grammatical foundation, and I feel confident to educate others with that knowledge. My study of literature has evolved from something that was once just a hobby—I loved to read books—to a skill which allows me to understand language, symbols, themes, and the significance of a text. I feel confident and excited about the opportunity to share what I have learned with other students. Reading, writing, and analyzing are difficult tasks. I want students to feel capable of developing skills, and excited about the work they are able to produce.

I would love for students to feel excited about tutoring sessions, and share with me what they are passionate about. I'd love to offer college advice to students as well if that is helpful. In addition, I am open to any suggestions from parents about what the best strategies and teaching methods are for their child. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions or to schedule a lesson. I look forward to meeting!
