About Lauren

Born and raised in Michigan, I developed a passion for helping others and a need for adventure. From working as a social worker to my treks up and down the world's highest mountains, I have spent much of my life enriching the lives of others while expanding my own horizons. In 2012, after spending many years living abroad in South Korea, I moved to California to begin a new adventure.

My teaching experience is just as extensive and creative. I started tutoring at after school programs when I was in high school, continuing my passion for school aged children through my years in college. After graduating, I took a leap and started my ESL experience in Korea, working with ages 3-50. Over the next 5 years, I switched countries and students many times, but my passion for teaching only continued to grow. Since coming back to my homeland, I have worked for several educational exchange programs, and continued one on one tutoring.

I've been teaching math for 15 years and my students have gone on to increase grades, have a better understanding of this area, increase test study skills. Within the first few lessons, you'll understand my teaching style and quickly build a rapport which will make asking questions and learning much easier. I love working with students of all experience levels, sometime math can be very tricky for students but I am here to make it as simple as possible.

I've been teaching ESL for 9 years and my students have gone on to be great conversationalist, travel to other countries, and build businesses! Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to map out what it is your looking to accomplish and the path that is needed to be successful! Having actually lived abroad, I have firsthand knowledge and respect for other cultures and countries. I love working with students of all experience levels and helping them grow and reach their full potential.

If you are interested in a teacher with a creative teaching style, who will get to know you as a person to make sure that you are getting the most out of your lessons and will work with the schedule you desire, I am the one for you! Reach out to see if we are a match!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Study Skills

I am qualified to help with study skills for many reasons. I conducted many study sessions for my classmates when I was in school, HS and college. Also, created study groups for my students when I was teaching in Korea. Most students I have now are in middle school and high school and need significant help studying, retaining and calming nerves when it comes to tests. I work with each student's strengths and weaknesses to create helpful study sessions, such as note cards, practice tests, repetition, etc. to plant and keep the information in their heads. Also continuing to use/bring up past information to continue to remember and use it.
