About Loraine

Hello future students,

A pleasure to meet you. I'm Loraine. You may call me Miss Lori.

I'm currently an English teacher at Legacy Christian School, and I hold in my heart a great love of English literature. However, for a long time, I found no joy in poetry, but I would consider this one of my strengths, since by slowly coming to love poetic structure and language, I can call upon the experience of my knowledge to better explain the worthwhile beauty of it.

While my education and experience inform my strategies, every student is unique, and so, to discover the best way to teach you, I make sure to gear my lessons towards my students' current abilities. I have experience teaching middle-schoolers and children with disabilities, and in every case I've been overjoyed to see them grow in knowledge before my eyes.

Confidence and a willingness to take risks is usually the first step, and soon after the student comes to speak with eloquence and by extension think with elegance. The ability to express complex thought is usually necessary in order to think with complexity, and that really is the joy of English.

Grammar is my strength. Organizing words and thoughts, finding the errors, seeing the patterns inherent to the English language are each things I like to approach from a logical and systematic perspective. I teach reading and writing with similar strategy as well.

Please contact me to schedule lessons!

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.

Bible Studies

Having spent three years as a Kid's Club Leader and having studied the Bible all my life as a Christian, I am greatly equipped to teach the Word of God to those that seek such knowledge.
