About Lawrence

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.

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)

In Anchorage, Alaska, I tutored elementary students for A to Z In-Home Tutoring (home office Nashville, TN) for four years. I did my job so well in terms of student achievement that A to Z offered me a position supervising other tutors.

Elementary Math

I tutored successfully students having difficulties understanding math concepts.

English

I have 40 years' experience teaching and tutoring English in primary, secondary, and higher education. I have been licensed in New York City, New York state, and Alaska as a secondary teacher. My college and university experience includes Talladega College, in Alabama; Wayne State University, in Detroit; and University of Alaska Anchorage, in chronological order. After retirement from the University of Alaska, I tutored elementary and secondary students In Anchorage, Alaska.

I have a BA in English from the University of Wisconsin, Madison; an MA in English from New York University (New York City); and doctoral candidacy in English Education at New York University.

Phonics

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.

Public Speaking

I taught public speaking at West Babylon H.S., New York and at Talladega College, Talladega, Alabama.

I have been a public speaker myself by invitation.
