About Laura

Good day! I have been teaching for 16 years, and English is my passion. I grew up in NY and earned my B.A. in English and education at SUNY Geneseo. Shortly after I graduated I drove my old jalopy cross-country to move to San Diego, where I achieved my M.A. in Reading k-12. I have educated every grade level from 6-12, and my tutoring experience ranges all the way from teaching kindergarten children to read up through teaching high school seniors how to take the critical reading portion of the SAT.

What I love most about tutoring is the one-on-one attention I can give my students. It is exceedingly rewarding to observe a student's growth and to see the lights come on. I am 11 units in to my TESOL studies, and hope to someday travel more and teach English in other countries. In the meantime, I'd love to meet you.

During my free time I run a book club at my school, head a poetry jam in the spring, and engage the 8th grade promotion speakers in dialogue about how to improve their speeches. I love reading and writing, as well as the dramatic arts and public speaking.

If this profile sounds like your kind of teacher, don't hesitate to contact me to schedule your first appointment. Remember, persistence in the face of challenge is the key to success!

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.

English

Having gone to school in upstate NY, I have earned a B.A. in English/Education from SUNY Geneseo. I have also taught English for the last 16 years.

Literature

As an avid reader and teacher of literature, if I have not read the book you are studying, we will read it together. In most cases I will be quite familiar with the pieces you will read in high school and beyond. I also love introducing both classic and modern literature to students for the first time.
