About Lori

Hello!

My name is Lori and I have over 25 years of life experiences ranging from education, social work, parenthood, travel and volunteerism. I have taught in grades K-12. Most recently I had my own blended classroom of 1st-4th grade students at a charter school. My focus was English Language Arts (ELA).

I am trained and experienced in teaching the Spalding Method of phonics. I am also trained and experienced in teaching Saxon Mathematics.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in social work from the University of Kansas from where I bring much of my compassion, understanding and knowledge. I do have a range of experience outside the classroom with various populations. As a social worker, I have taught child development knowledge and skills to young mothers. I have also taught CPR and First Aid classes to various businesses for the American Red Cross. My volunteer experiences ranges from the Veterans Administration to hospice.

My years of experience have taught me that each child is unique and possesses a special strength. One of my goals is to seek out that special ability in your child and encourage your child to become his or her own personal best.

I promise to bring a positive attitude, patience and knowledge to each session with your child. I look to provide your child with an enhanced learning in the area that he/she may be struggling or that they would like to receive a deeper understanding.

Finally, I believe that communication between the family, the student, and the student’s tutor and/or teacher can be one of the most important tools that enable children to be successful. I will promise to keep those lines of communication open.

I am available 8 am-9 pm Monday-Friday, 9 am-7 pm Saturday, and by special appointment on Sundays. I am available for both in person tutoring and online tutoring. Please feel free to contact me for more information.

I am looking forward to a positive and successful working relationship.

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out. -William Shakespeare
