Hello! I'm passionate about helping students reach their full potential, particularly in the arenas of reading and writing. I am a highly qualified tutor with South Carolina certification in elementary teaching and training in the Orton-Gillingham method of reading. I previously served as a third grade teacher to students with dyslexia, as well as tutored a variety of students in the areas of phonics, ESL, and writing. I would love to help your student reach their literacy goals through explicit, sequential, and multi-sensory instruction that is tailored for their individual needs.

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.

Dyslexia

I am trained in the Orton-Gillingham method of reading instruction to help students struggling with dyslexia, which is a reading disability that affects reading, writing, and spelling. My approach is to provide sequential, multi-sensory instruction that focuses on building phonemic awareness and reading comprehension strategies.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a South Carolina teaching certificate in the elementary grades. I am qualified to teach in the subject areas of reading, social studies, science, math, and writing. I taught 3rd grade for three years at a school where I taught phonics, reading comprehension, writing, math, and science.

Phonics

I am trained in the Orton-Gillingham methodology of reading. It provides an explicit and sequential approach to phonics and has been shown to be extremely effective for students with dyslexia.

Study Skills

I am a highly qualified tutor with South Carolina certification in elementary teaching and training in the Orton-Gillingham method of reading. I have experience teaching students how to organize their materials/ideas, read and research for specific purposes, and how to process information for meaningful application in their learning endeavors.

Wonderful progress — Lauren continues to do an amazing job helping our granddaughter with her reading and spelling problems due to dyslexia. We are amazed with the progress and quality of work she now produces. We just received our granddaughter's test results for her winter MAP reading test. Her score jumped 7 points from the fall test. Thank you Lauren. You are the primary reason for this success! ...
