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

ADD/ADHD

As an Instructor, one of the courses that I taught every year was 'Child and Adolescent Development and Psychopathology'. There was a strong focus given to current research and science concerning Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This involved assessment and management of this still controversial diagnosis.
Some common techniques included classroom management, reading and study skills, and personalized learning techniques. The most contentious debates were concerning the dilemma of medicating a sometimes very young student.
It seemed to help the students in my courses when I disclosed my own struggles with ADHD, and the methods that were helpful to me in my successful academic career.

Macintosh

I have been a Mac user for many years. I like the sleek design, functionality, and friendly user interface.
Quite intuitive for the uninitiated, fast, powerful, and the ability to read and format documents from PCs that are not Mac-compatible.
The native browser (Safari) is competitive with any others. However, if one is more comfortable with others--i.e., Firefox, Chrome, Opera; all are readily compatible with the Mac Operating System.

Writing

In the course of my studying and teaching at several institutions of higher learning, I have had to do many writing assignments, including those required for two Master's degrees (Social Welfare and Clinical Psychology), and for a PhD in Clinical Psychology. I have done multiple trainings and workshops, which required a great deal of writing, mostly in the preparation stages.
I am especially good at editing the work of others. I like to believe that I can offer advice and criticism in a positive, non-threatening manner.
My goal are to make writing seem less of a 'mystery' and more of a powerful way to express my students' own 'voice', thereby empowering them to master the writing process.

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.
