Hello parents and prospective students,
My name is Laurie and I would love to assist you with meeting your educational needs. I have spent most of my life in the academic realm causing me to become quite proficient at studying. I have a bachelor’s and master’s in psychology and am currently beginning a second master’s in counseling. I have a passion for lifelong learning and am enthusiastic about inspiring young minds with intrinsic motivation to do the same. So last summer I spent two months in a rigorous peer advisory course to obtain certification as a peer advisor. In this course I ascertained ample information regarding learning styles, interpersonal communication methods, and study skills related to examination preparation, data representation, reading, memorization, and note taking, in addition to time, anxiety, and stress management. This course encourages use of the Socratic method of facilitating, which encourages students to explore information through investigative dialogue.
I am currently tutoring students part-time at a local high school but would be open to meet whatever tutor needs or location you request. In my current employment as a tutor, I am becoming increasingly aware of the need for students to learn how to study adequately early in their academic career. I would love to assess your student’s study skills and methods and share any knowledge I possess regarding additional tools he or she could employ. Emphasis would focus on increasing any grades in any subjects where the student is not currently receiving an A.
If any of this information resonates with you and your student please do not hesitate to contact me and let me know if you want my assistance.
