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

American History

I LOVE History. It is a passion of mine. Most of the books in my personal library are about historical figures, eras or events. One thing I find particularly fascinating are the historic events taking place in one part of the world while others are happening in another. For example: Mozart was writing his wonderful music at the same time America was fighting her war for Independence and writing the Constitution.

Ballroom Dancing

I have been ballroom dancing since high school. I can dance and teach the waltz, foxtrot, salsa, tango, rumbha, East Coast swing, night club two-step, polka, etc. I am very patient and will go at whatever pace best suits the student.

Business

I have been self employed for many years. I also have a master's degree in business. The course curriculum included Statistics, Accounting, Financial Management, Marketing, Organizational Behavior, International Business, Management in a Global Economy, Economics, Managment of Information Systems, Ethics in Business and many others.

Cooking

I love to cook and bake. If you want to learn how to create wonderful and delicious meals, you have come to the right place. I make cooking fun.

At all family functions, I am asked to either bake a cake or bread. But I also love to cook all kinds of dishes, mains, sides, desserts. I am one of five kids and cooked my first meal in the 4th grade. Of course Mom helped but I was in the kitchen doing it. Since then I have been in the kitchen.

I have also written three cook books: "My Mother's Kitchen", "Thirty-one Days of Soup", and "Another Giant Zucchini?". I have three more books in development and am collecting my mom's meatball recipes for her to publish.

Microsoft Excel

I LOVE Excel. I have used it for years. I have created spreadsheets with formulas, special formatting, inserted pictures, graphic, charts, graphs, etc. I have also imported data from other programs, websites, etc. I can show you all the tricks available.

Microsoft Windows

I have been using Microsoft Windows almost since it first launched. As an IT Manager, I have installed it, updated it, reset it, repaired it, and taught it. I also used the Network version setting up logins and passwords, setting user permissions, and security levels. I have installed/uninstalled devices and software on it, optimized it, etc. I have even troubleshooted family and friend's computer's windows issues over the phone without even seeing the computer.

I use my computer almost all day, and it currently has Microsoft Windows 8 on it, with all the latest patches, of course.

Microsoft Word

I have been using Microsoft Word for many years. I use it for simple documents to complex ones. I also used it to write 3 books including Tables of Contents, hyperlinks, specialized formatting, etc.

Reading

I love to read. It is a passion that I got from my father, whom I never knew to not be engrossed in a book. I am the same. I am always have at least one book on my nightstand, and more often it is two.

If I am not reading a book, I am exploring the Internet reading news articles or just researching something that caught my interest.

Study Skills

One of the first things I ask a student (depending on age of course) is how they learn best, i.e., listening, hands on, reading, etc. I then adjust my teaching style accordingly.

I can help understanding the importance of note taking, scheduling study break time, finding a good location for studying, organizing course work, etc.

I also find the PQRST (Preview, Question, Read, Summary, Test) works very well. Also giving analogies of everyday things can create pictures in the students mind that can help learning.

World History

I have a passion for history. I view history as a intertwined group of events, people, culture, etc. History is a fluid sequence of events and people that, throughout the ages, have evolved into the events taking shape today. I continually find it fascinating how a small decision made 500 years ago has evolved into something that is so common today it isn't given a second thought. I can bring that passion to you.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.
