I am a dedicated teacher with over 19 years of teaching experience. My teaching credential is in Special Ed as is my Master's Degree. I have worked in four educational settings and have acquired proficiency in handling the complicated yet important task of teaching children, with and without special needs. I encourage students to develop emotionally, socially and academically, according to their individual needs. I am sensitive to student needs and I help build self-esteem and I comfort students in need. I am firm and have high expectations while remaining loving at all times. I have a background in developmental practices and educational theories. I have outstanding interpersonal communication and am parent/student oriented. I am communicative and cooperative and engender optimal student/parent/tutor interaction.
I demonstrate a strong work ethic and have excellent verbal and written skills. I am an effective time manager and am sensitive to different learning styles and abilities. I have strong decision-making skills and maintain an orderly learning environment. I am personally skilled in math and have taught math in the public schools. I have over 16 years' experience in teaching reading, writing, listening and speaking competencies. I have especially liked working one-on-one with students over the years and feel that it is the most effective way to help a student succeed. I feel that nurturing a child's self-esteem and sense of accomplishment is vital to overall academic success, regardless of the level the student is at.
I've seen much improvement in my son's reading and comprehension in just a matter of 3 weeks. LuAnn has done an excellent job in identifying my son's needs and has provided the necessary tools/lessons to help him get better. What I like most about Luann is that she is patient with my son, but most importantly I can see how much she cares about seeing her students excel.Brenda, 23 lessons with Lu AnnTutor responded:

LuAnn has made me feel like I have a partner on my daughter’s journey to proficient literacy. She makes my daughter very comfortable and I’m quite optimistic my girl will build some much needed confidenceShanise, 47 lessons with Lu Ann
LuAnn has been an excellent fit as a math tutor for my son. She has helped him to review areas of deficiency and improve his confidence. She took a very tailored approach to working with him and I am confident he will be well-prepared for 7th grade in the fall. After their last session, he even asked if he could continue tutoring with LuAnn after school starts! Of course I said yes!Jennifer, 34 lessons with Lu Ann
Amazing, knowledgeable, and patient tutor!
Ms. LuAnn has been a great tutor for my 11-year-old son. My son has ADHD and Ms. LuAnn finds strategies to maintain his attention and teaches my son difficult material in a simplistic manner. She has gone above and beyond to make sure she is prepared for my son’s tutoring sessions by obtaining a copy of his math book, extra practice worksheets, and providing me with frequent updates on his tutoring progress when I am at work. My family and I are grateful for Ms. LuAnn’s help and her continuous support. If you’re looking for a patient, prepared, and knowledgeable tutor I highly recommend Ms. LuAnn. Thank you, Ms. LuAnn!Elizabeth, 57 lessons with Lu Ann
My son adores LuAnn!
My son is 7 and on the autism spectrum. LuAnn has expertise in working with special needs children and my son has had tremendous improvement with his reading. He looks forward to meeting with her every week and will happily engage with her and work on his reading. She is incredibly patient but is also able to set limits and get him on task. His school and I have noticed a big difference in his reading abilities. I am so grateful that he is now interested in reading and he is showing confidence and improvement at school. Thank you, LuAnn!Lisa, 39 lessons with Lu Ann

LuAnn is extremely organized and thoughtful in the lesson plans she has for my son. She is patient and kind. After only one lesson, I feel confident in my decision to hire LuAnn to help my son with his reading & writing.Lori, 56 lessons with Lu Ann
LuAnn is a great tutor. We went through 3 tutors till we finally found her. My kindergartener struggles with reading and Luann immediately took action through assessment and by reaching out to her teacher. We as well as the teacher noticed a significant improvement and confidence in our child.Sylvia , 40 lessons with Lu AnnTutor responded:
