My name is Laura and I look forward to helping you achieve your academic goals.
I am a certified teacher working in a Chicago charter school. I have been teaching for 8 years and currently teach 7th grade math and science on the west side of Chicago. I have taught students in whole classroom settings, after school programs, enrichment programs, clubs, small groups and in one-on-one tutoring settings. I have experience teaching students of many diverse backgrounds and educational needs in a general education setting (students who have not been successful at school, students with special needs, and gifted students).
I earned my masters degree in teaching elementary education from Columbia College Chicago. As a primary and intermediate teacher, I taught all subject areas (reading, math, science, and social studies) and as a middle school teacher, I have taught math, science, and reading. I have also tutored writing composition and creative writing at the college level.
I care very much about my students and their success. After getting to know the learning style of my students, I use complementary teaching methods to help students understand and apply new information. Every student has the ability to make great academic gains with the right challenge, motivation, work ethic, and quality instruction.
I look forward to helping your child achieve!
