Hello parents & caregivers,
My name is Lauren and I have been an early childhood teacher in the NYC Dept. of Education for 7 years.
My passion is literacy. I love teaching children how to read.
I can help your child with phonics, handwriting, reading comprehension, decoding & fluency. If you know your child is struggling with a particular reading or writing standard, I can design lessons that teach to that standard. I have numerous materials that prepare students for the ELA and Math exams (grades 3, 4, 5).
I am available Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday evenings and occasional weekends.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to teach Math k-5 because my certification is Elementary Education. I have been a lower grade teacher for 6 years. I have experience with Everyday Math, Envisions math and Go Math! Programs.

Phonics

I have been an elementary education teacher (grades K-2) for the last 6 years. I have been to numerous professional development workshops on "Foundations Phonics" and "Core Knowledge Phonics". I believe in gather data prior to conducting phonics lessons. For example, determining how many sounds, uppercase/lower letters, and sight words the student knows. This data allows me to determine the students entry point and then I can better instruct them.
