Bio

Hi! I have been a certified teacher in Alabama and Kansas. My certification was in Collaborative Education K-6 /Reading endorsement and Regular Education for English Language Arts in grades 6-8. I taught in Kansas for the last 4 years and recently moved back to Alabama when my husband was honourably discharged from the U.S. Army. I taught 6th grade Reading/Language Arts, Science and Math which I loved and looked forward to doing every day. I also worked with the Department of Defense...

Hi! I have been a certified teacher in Alabama and Kansas. My certification was in Collaborative Education K-6 /Reading endorsement and Regular Education for English Language Arts in grades 6-8. I taught in Kansas for the last 4 years and recently moved back to Alabama when my husband was honourably discharged from the U.S. Army. I taught 6th grade Reading/Language Arts, Science and Math which I loved and looked forward to doing every day. I also worked with the Department of Defense Education Activity (DODEA) for three years as a Special Education Program Aide for students with Emotional Disturbance, ADHD, Autism and Learning Disabilities.

I am taking a break from the classroom at the moment because I am spending time with my family (specifically my 2 year old granddaughter whom I plan to homeschool) and acclimating myself again to Alabama. I miss working with students, however, and would love the opportunity to assist your family in your academic needs.

I hold an endorsement in K-6 Reading and 6-8 English Language Arts. I, also, have experience teaching Reading /Language Arts to students in various grades.

I am certified in Collaborative Education K-6 and I have several years of experience in teaching students with special needs.

I have a lot of experience in differentiating education for students, so I know how to work with students one on one in a homeschool environment. I love finding and implementing strategies that help students to enjoy learning and in becoming lifelong learners.

Please feel free to contact me with any further questions you may have and/or to schedule lessons. I look forward to assisting you with your academic needs.

I taught 6th grade for three years at an alternative school in Kansas. Students that I taught included students with ADHD, Autism, Learning Disabilities and Emotional Disturbances.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Lora was very patient and understanding. Lora was willing to teach according to my child's learning style. She was also willing to help us on a last minute assignment and answer any questions we had.

Amanda, 1 lesson with Lora

So patient and encouraging

Lora goes above and beyond with her tutoring to make sure that her students are learning and getting done what is needed regardless of how much time it takes. She is also very encouraging --- my daughter can get frustrated sometimes with herself, but Lora kept telling her what a great job she was doing and complimented her effort which made a big difference.

Very Patient Tutor

Lora helped my work the proper structure of an essay for the Lower Level ISEE exam. She was very patient and helpful. After one session, my daughter now feels much more confident about this section of the exam. Thank you Lora!

Lora D.

Lora helps my 10yr old son with his reading. He really didn’t want to do it at first but she was able to pull him right in. She has a great personality and is very knowledgeable in her studies. She has helped my son a lot with just a few sessions.

Christy, 10 lessons with Lora

Very Supportive

The tutor is very supportive and patient when tutoring my daughter. She is making sure that my daughter understands everything in the white board or during session.
