About Laurence

I am a tutor with advanced degrees and years of experience, but what matters most to me is the students I teach.

I have experience with different grade-levels from middle school and high school to those taking college courses. I never give up until we create the success the student needs.

So many standardized tests are required these days – CAHSEE, PSAT, SAT I and SAT II subject tests, ACT and the many Advanced Placement tests [AP Literature, AP History, AP Chemistry, AP Math, AP Physics, AP Languages ... and more]. Success on each of these tests needs solid work in class, of course, and a focused and planned preparation.

I know that each student has different specific needs for review and support, so I always begin with a practice test as a diagnostic and use the results of that test as the guideline for customizing the course to the student.

My years of success prove I know how to increase scores!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.
