I'm Ready to Succeed
Academic Success Staff
Vi Dutcher, Professor, Language & Literature; Academic Success Center Director; Writing
Welcome to the tutoring services provided by undergraduate peers and, for graduate
students, our Graduate Writing Coach, Mary Ann Zehr.
If you are an EMU student, our services are for you. Our tutors are like you. They
are taking classes, taking exams, writing papers, and doing their homework. The difference
is that they are also tutoring their peers in their area of expertise. Our tutors
provide tutoring in writing, speech, history, economics, math, psychology, chemistry,
physics, biology, business, education, accounting, Spanish, nursing, and engineering.
If we don’t cover what you need, please tell us, and we’ll find a tutor.
Find a session you need through the Navigate link on myEMU.

Mary Ann Zehr, EMU Writing Instructor and Graduate Writing Coach
My goal as a writing coach is to work with students so they gain confidence in writing
and learn something in each session that they can apply in writing their next paper.
We may meet in person in the Graduate and Professional Studies Writing Center in the
library or via Zoom. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
to set up an appointment.
