All of Laura’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Laura’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Phonics

I spent many years teaching students who were years behind in reading how to read. My preferred method was using phonics, as these students could not identify sounds, therefore they could not deduce what many words were. As my basis, I used my own knowledge of phonics as well as the technique I had been taught while an undergraduate student majoring in English. I had been required, during that time, to take a phonics/grammar/spelling course.

Sociology

As an undergraduate student, I took many courses in the Social Sciences. Among them were extensive courses in Sociology, which I eventually turned into a minor. My California teaching credential lists Sociology as one of my minors.

Study Skills

One of the subjects I taught over my 36 year teaching career was study skills. It became apparent to me that students did not know how to organize and/or study; thus I established time within my classroom to teach students how to prepare for studying and how to organize their time. As a result, I saw my students' test scores improve drastically.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
