Ethan: Tutor
Hi, my name is Ethan. I am currently a student at Eastern Michigan University
going into special and elementary education. I have multiple learning differences, so I empathize that with students who need an extra hand for school and learning. I have worked in many fields of education, including being a mountain bike instructor and camp counselor. I also have substituted in many different districts and currently am a premier sub at Beacon elementary in the Dexter school district. I have had many opportunities to mentor with organizations such as Big Brother Big Sisters and help college freshmen at my university. When in down time you can find me doing many things including ultra-
running, mountain biking, and being outdoors. I can’t wait to help your child grow and succeed.
