About Laurel

I have taught English at a college in Oakland for 8 years. My students know me as supportive and process-oriented, but they also know I will get them where they want to go. Patience, caring, and adaptable-- these traits serve me well in relating to students and devising an individual way to teach them. My experience both as a tutor of community college students and as a teacher of classes at the same level means I understand what drives a student to want to excel, both with personal goals and practical needs.

I have experience tutoring English literature, composition, reading, writing, and vocabulary. I will work with what materials you bring to me, but also provide my own exercises and lesson plans if desired, in order to support you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
