Hello,

My name is Laura and I look forward to working with you!

Do you have a desire to be the BEST you can be, get the help you have been needing, come up with an organized, structured way to approach certain concepts and studies, all while having fun?

During my graduate work at college, I tutored elementary - and middle - school children in various subjects from math to English to science to social studies. I have mentored and tutored Spanish as well. The subjects/areas that I most enjoy are Language Arts (reading, writing, comprehension, grammar, editing), Art (drawing, singing, decorating), test prep, sciences, nutrition.

I use a very fun, engaging, yet structured personal approach to each client. I listen to each person to gain insight to what their concerns or struggles are. I structure my tutoring to the learning style of each client and always welcome feedback so to make this as enjoyable, obtainable, and worthwhile for them as much as possible.

I have a passion for living, a heart to help, and a desire to learn and grow everyday! Join me on YOUR journey to overcoming what you want to and being the BEST you can be!

"Laura Does a Great Job"

- Dean, Greenville, WI on 11/18/14
Laura replied on 11/19/2014

Hi Dean! Thanks so much for your feedback here on WyzAnt! I truly appreciate your words. Your son does well in sessions -- it's tweaking a few things and transferring that confidence from tutoring to the test is what we need to focus on. I am glad that he is showing more of an interest in math. I will continue to give him tips on how to get through those tests as best I can -- coming from personal experience. Thank you for trusting in me to work with him! I enjoy it! See you all soon!

"A great first day!"

- Amy, Neenah, WI on 11/6/14
Laura replied on 11/7/2014

Hi Amy! Thanks so much for your feedback here! It was a pleasure to work with her as well. She seemed very comfortable and honest with what she was feeling (test anxiety). Being as open as she can only makes her a better person -- it lets me as the tutor know how to best help her. I appreciate her honesty. She did fantastic during the session yesterday and I told her that if she keeps focused and determined that she can do anything. By the time March comes, she should be totally equipped to pass that test. Thank you for trusting me and my skills to work with her!

You will do amazing A!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 have tutored elementary math, reading and reading/comprehension, sciences, and social studies. I have three years of experience and have mostly worked with elementary and middle school students. A testimonial: I tutored a girl who was in third grade public school, but came from an Amish school the year prior. She was behind in her studies and her and her parents were quite frustrated. After only a few short weeks of working with her, she was able to understand her math and sciences better and did very well in reading too.

English

English has always been my forte. I love to read, write, edit, and teach English. I enjoy helping students with English the most. I have tutored both English and Spanish.

Reading

On reading: I love to read, I love to write, I enjoy editing papers, I like the challenge of reading/comprehension, and I love to show others how they can enjoy reading!

Study Skills

I am qualified to tutor study skills because I am organized and did well with this through school. I am also qualified because I just completed a 2 month course on how to tutor, how to make the sessions tailored to the individual, how to engage the client and make the session enjoyable and fun for them (especially with kids) as well as to create and maintain structure to ensure success. I look forward to helping others overcome this obstacle and providing the knowledge that I know and have been taught.

Super patient. — Highly recommend Laura! Very patient and non-judgmental. Willing to meet you at your level. Super organized herself and lots of good and practical ideas. ...
