About Lora


Bio

Hi there. I am the classic example of a teacher who just loves to teach. Although I am new to Wyzant, I have been teaching for many years. I have 26 years' experience in SAT and ACT prep for high school students. I can work with students who only need a little bit of fine tuning, or students who need a full program covering all aspects of the test from A-Z. I pride myself on being skilled at diagnosing exactly what students need to improve their scores. I don't want to waste students'...

Hi there. I am the classic example of a teacher who just loves to teach. Although I am new to Wyzant, I have been teaching for many years. I have 26 years' experience in SAT and ACT prep for high school students. I can work with students who only need a little bit of fine tuning, or students who need a full program covering all aspects of the test from A-Z. I pride myself on being skilled at diagnosing exactly what students need to improve their scores. I don't want to waste students' time teaching what they can already do well. Instead, I target the problem areas, while still supporting and leveraging the strength areas. I teach students as efficiently as they can handle, but recognize when I need to slow down so that a student fully understands. I can also help with the college application essay, which can often makes the difference between acceptance and denial.

In addition to test prep, I have experience with a wide variety of academic subjects for students from Kindergarten through High School. I teach math up through High School Geometry, History, English and essays, and Study Skills. As a professional educator, I am aware of and following all the current changes going on in schools as they adapt to the Common Core curriculum.

I have a Master's Degree in Education, with an emphasis on Development, Learning, and Instruction. I have always preferred to teach in a private setting, rather than a classroom. After all, a cookie cutter approach doesn't always work. Students are individuals, each with unique strengths and weaknesses. I like to work with students to identify and meet those individual needs.

Although I have tasted other careers through the years, I keep coming back to teaching. I love seeing the light bulbs go off when students finally understand a difficult concept, or the excitement on their faces when they realize they CAN be successful. I am versatile, flexible, friendly, experienced, and able to handle the unexpected, which often occurs during instruction.

I look forward to hearing from you and discussing how I can help you or your child achieve success!
