About Laurie


Bio

Throughout my career, whether I have been teaching in a classroom or managing a department in a business, encouraging others to learn, think, and solve problems has been the source of both my greatest success and satisfaction. I truly love helping young people grow confident and bold in their abilities to reason, create, and solve problems.

Throughout my career, whether I have been teaching in a classroom or managing a department in a business, encouraging others to learn, think, and solve problems has been the source of both my greatest success and satisfaction. I truly love helping young people grow confident and bold in their abilities to reason, create, and solve problems.

I have tutored elementary age children between 1st and 5th grades in both after-school care programs and in private tutoring for many years. With high school students, I have enjoyed great success in improving grades and test scores for young people in English literature, grammar, history, American government, and ACT and SAT test scores. My college degree is in both history and political science where writing and grammar were essential to success. As a retired home-school mother, I specialize in working with home-schooled children to improve their grasp of a subject or to design and teach an entire course for the busy family.

My goal for each session is to encourage a love of learning that leads to tangible success in the area studied. I want your child to enjoy tutoring and look forward to learning. Where needed I assign homework, but first I will try to use the student’s own curriculum.

Writing, both fiction and academic analysis, is my lifelong passion. My college degree is in both history and political science where writing and grammar are essential to success. For many years I have written fiction for pleasure and have served as an editor for others. These skills are now used to help young people.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you or your children achieve their goals and dreams.
