Ben Bigalke Book with Ben
I received my Bachelors in Telecommunication, Information Studies, and Media fro...m Michigan State University in 2008 and then moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the film industry. After realizing the film industry wasn't for me, I moved home and started my Masters in Counseling here at Eastern Michigan University back in 2011. I will graduate in May of 2014.
Education:

Counseling

Interests:

Why should students seek a academic support?:

College can be an overwhelming experience and whether you realize it or not, it is easy to get lost in everything you have to do. Seeking academic support introduces a person into your life that is able to step back and fully see what is going on because they are not you. That outside perspective and the associated valuable knowledge that a Success Coach brings can be essential in helping you succeed.

Associations:

My advice to anyone who wants to earn good grades and graduate on time is:

My advice for success would be to always prioritize the activities in your life, manage your time properly, and know when you need to ask for help. College is an amazing experience with a lot to offer and it can be easy to get lost in all of that. As long as you know what's most important (i.e. school), budget enough time to complete assignments and study for tests, and are not afraid to ask for help when needed, you should be on the right track. If you feel overwhelmed or just nervous, just know that a Success Coach can go a long way to help keep you on track.

Chartonay Sumpter Book with Chartonay
I am a Spring 2012 graduate of Virginia Union University. A small historically b...lack university located in Richmond, Virginia. It is here that I found my love of theatre and received A Bachelor of Fine Arts in theatre and music. My school experience was incredible yet challenging! I wasn't always focused and didn't make the best of grades. Nevertheless I was determined to graduate and go to grad school; and with hard work and dedication I did just that!
Education:

Applied Drama Theatre for the Young

Interests:

Why should students seek a academic support?:

A university is a team and its students are the players. Every great team has a staff of coaches waiting to encourage and inspire their players, i.e. academic support. Academic support gives you the resources and tools that you will need to stay successful! And....its FREE!

My advice to anyone who wants to earn good grades and graduate on time is:

Stay positive, be persistent, and help is only a mentor away!

Gilles Renard Book with Gilles
Success Coach

I did my undergraduate in Physics at Eastern Michigan. I was also... competing for the EMU Swim team for 4 years and working as a math/physics tutor for a year. As an international student it was hard to combine all of this but I figured it out after a couple semesters. All together my undergraduate college experience was a blast, I made a lot of friends and got to know personally several professors.
Education:

Engineering

Associations:

Why should students seek a academic support?:

Academic support makes your life easier in college. Nobody will go through college without struggling in a couple classes. Instead of trying to figure out everything by yourself, it is good to seek help from time to time. It will save you time and energy (and money in most cases !).

My advice to anyone who wants to earn good grades and graduate on time is:

Be focused at the start. The first couple semesters are the most important and sometimes the hardest because of the transition from high school to college. It begins with always (always !) going to classes and making sure to turn in every assignment on time in order to avoid those "F" that will hurt your final grade. If that doesn't work: Come see us (and your professors) for help !

NaQuaina Moore Book with NaQuaina
I attended EMU as an undergraduate and now as a graduate student, I feel I have ...had a well-rounded educational experience. I appreciate the diversity, the many options of organizations and the importance of Education.
Education:

Higher Education Student Affairs

Interests:

Why should students seek a academic support?:

I believe it is important that students take advantage of the academic resources their school provides. As students we are responsible for our own learning, the more time and effort you put into your educational experience the more you will get out of it.

My advice to anyone who wants to earn good grades and graduate on time is:

My advice would be get to know your professors, take time to study and make friends. "Take of business first, then have fun."

Jaclyn S says: My tutor had a lot of experience in the subject. He went over any questions i had about any of the material i learned in my class. He also went over my review packets with me to make sure i am studying the right answers. He was really good at explaining the material. I wish I used the Holman learning center earlier.

Larecia R says: The meeting was such a success setup. No matter how much of emptiness I felt on the inside because of lack of work habits, the success coach turned it all around and made me more confident. especially if I wanted to remain at eastern next year.

Marissa K says: I absolutely loved that meeting. It made me feel more relax and at ease with my progress so far. I got every question I had answered and now I am hoping to reach all my goals discussed in the meeting.
Hannah Brokaw
10/16/2013
Anna F says: I have been tutoring with Hannah for just a week now in Spanish. I get so lost in class just because of the pace of the material. She has simplified so much for me and is just a joy to be around. For the first four weeks of the semester, I just felt dumb in this class and totally considered dropping it. Hannah has made it seem valuable, reachable, and even better, she reminds me that I'm not stupid and that struggling in another language is very normal. Teaching is a perfect career for her! I would recommend her to anyone needing help. I will be using her as much as I can while I'm at EMU. Thank you, Anna Fuqua-Smith
Excellent Tutor, very valuable!

julie u says: Samuel Boateng is an awesome chemistry tutor. He really knows chemistry and explains it in a way I can really relate and understand. He seems like he really cares about the people he tutors and it shows in the way he interacts with me. He has a great personality and is very passionate about it. Awesome Tutor!!!
Excellent resource, valuable tutor!

Heather A says: The Holman Success Center is an excellent resource for students taking challenging classes. Mary Skulzak, a Spanish tutor, knows the content well and offers numerous beneficial tips and tricks. She also includes documents that she saved from her own Spanish experiences to use as helpful instruction tools - such as practice questions for the OPI test. The free tutoring that Holman offers is certainly something to take full advantage of!
Great Tutor

Maleshia J says: Hannah Brokaw is an awesome tutor. Her background experience and education has made her the ideal tutor. Hannah made a subject that I felt like I was in an astronaut class seem so attainable. She makes things plain so you can understand at whatever your level is.In addition she makes sure all of your questions are answered as well. And she has a great personality. Teaching is the perfect career for her, she seems passionate about it. I recommend her to everyone. I will be using her whenever I can while I am at EMU.

Luke E says: I went in last semester and didn't get the help I needed. This semester I went in with purpose and laid out my whole situation and the success coach was super helpful. They really will work with most situations if you know how to present your needs effectively and as requests.

Tutor did not show up
12/03/2013
Alex S says: I made an apt. online and the tutor did not show up, the nice lady at the desk got me another tutor but already 20 minutes was wasted in waiting.
It Was Okay
11/06/2013
Remington R says: My tutor didn't really seem experienced because when we got to the table she just sat there. She didn't have any ideas on how she could help me study and when I asked her some simple questions on how some words translated she had to look up the answer online. It was very awkward and she seemed very anxious to leave. It felt like I was trying to put more effort into the session than she was.
Never met tutor

Kasey d says: I tried to schedule with a tutor after 5pm and the system routed me to a guy who left work at that time. Great if you don't have a full time job.
