Hi, my name is Lori. I graduated from Adelphi University in Garden City, Long Island, with a BA in English and Communications. I also hold a Masters Degree in English from Adelphi as well. I have been working with students for over 22 years. I was part of a program at Hofstra University called Saturday Morning Classes for young people. I taught a creative writing class where students learned to write what they were feeling. I also had the opportunity to work with younger children on their reading skills. I privately worked with students who were having some difficulty keeping up. It was really nice to see them at one level and at the end of the semester you could see the children's improvement. I am currently teaching the verbal portion of the SAT. My goal is to see a child succeed.

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.

Ballet

I have been dancing since I was 5 years old. I have been fortunate enough to dance with some of the biggest names in the dance industry. I have taught ballet to pre-school thru adults. I have taught recital base classes as well as competition classes for 22 years.. My some of my students have auditioned for some of the big ballet and dance companies in the world.

Ballroom Dancing

I have been dancing for 35 years now. I have studied ballroom at the Broadway Dance Center in New York City. I have had the privilege of dancing with teachers and choreographers from So You Think You Can dance. I have been teaching all forms of dance for about 22 years.

Business

I have owned my own Ebay Store business for 11 years. I started it up all by myself. I market and promote the business. I have created promotions, blogs and drew traffic to my own store.

Cosmetology

I have been using make up professionally for the past 25 years. I've been fortunate to know how to apply it for stage use as well as just everyday wear. I know when make up is applied too much or it's just the correct amount. Most recently I worked with my sister and members of her Bridal Party for her wedding.

Film

I have a minor in Communication/Film Studies at Adelphi University. I have written and produced my own films while in college. One of my films that I wrote and produced was submitted into a contest for its content. I have also taught students thru the Saturday Morning Kids program at Hofstra University. There were wrote our own script and produced our own films. At the end of the program we had our own film screening with the students.

Marketing

I spent 6 years as a Marketing Assistant working for a Mall Management Company. There I helped the mall tenants create marketing plans that would draw traffic into their stores. I also market my own Ebay business by using social media to draw traffic to my store.

Needlework

I worked in a summer camp for 15 years in Homemaking. In the program we did needlepoint which included: cross stitch for grades 1-6. I helped campers who could not thread a needle and do the stitch the proper way.

Photography

I have had my eye behind a camera lens for the past 25 years. I graduated Adelphi University with a minor in film communications. It was there that I found my calling behind a lens. My film work as well as my photography skills were featured in a university exhibit. I was one of few selected for this honor. Since then I have photographed such great sites as the Grand Canyon, Scotty's Castle, Death Valley, Zion National Park, Bryce National Park. My photography doesn't stop there. I have had the honor of capturing celebrity moments at the stage door as well as at events.

Sewing

I have worked at a summer camp for 15 years in the Homemaking program. There I taught students on how to sew. We sewed together pillows, created needlepoint frames and canvas. Each camper at the end of the summer took home a sewing project as a keepsake.

Video Production

During my undergraduate years I wrote and created a video production. I had the honor of having the video submitted into a school contest. The video was viewed by the entire school. Upon graduation I worked with Students at Hofstra University. There I assisted in a program called "Create Your Own Video Project." I assisted the children in writing and producing their own videos. Each child at the completion of the program had a copy of the video that they created.
