About Lawrence


Bio

I have more than 40 years' experience teaching on the secondary and college level, including personal tutoring of elementary to junior high school students. My special experience is teaching writing and reading comprehension as related to all the language arts, that is, fiction and non-fiction. I am certainly competent in statistics, having received an A in graduate level courses.

I have more than 40 years' experience teaching on the secondary and college level, including personal tutoring of elementary to junior high school students. My special experience is teaching writing and reading comprehension as related to all the language arts, that is, fiction and non-fiction. I am certainly competent in statistics, having received an A in graduate level courses.

My students do improve.

I formerly tutored with an in-home tutoring company where I was offered a tutor supervisory position in Anchorage, AK, when I lived there.

As a Ph.D. candidate, whose academic writing has been called "off the charts" compared to others, I have also written professionally as a journalist for the Anchorage Times and Anchorage Daily News.

I have been licensed as a secondary English teacher with the State of New York, New York City, and Alaska.

I tutored elementary and middle school students for several years with A to Z In-Home Tutoring, domiciled in Nashville, TN. I have taught secondary English, as licensed in Alaska, New York State, and New York City. I have an M.A. in English and have taught on the college level full time. I wrote professionally for The Anchorage Times (defunct) and the Anchorage Daily News. I am particularly sympathetic to students' learning difficulties in the subject area and will use any and all teaching strategies to overcome them. I studied linguistics at NYU for an MA and received an A grade. More, I have practical experience in teaching phonics as a tutor with A to Z In-Home tutoring. As an excellent speller, I certainly know the nature of phonics.
