About Lori

I taught AP/IB English for many years at the International School of Brussels. I was also the TOEFL supervisor in Brussels. While I sometimes teach Shakespeare at CU-Boulder, my main work is helping students prepare for standardized tests eg. SAT, ACT, PSAT, Subject Tests, GRE and LSAT. In addition, I assist students with college choice and college application essays. Students appreciate my straightforward approach. We get down to business!

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.

College Counseling

I have done college counseling on a one-to-one basis for the past twenty years. I help students with their college selection and college applications, especially college application essays.

Dyslexia

I have taught and tutored students with dyslexia for twenty years. I make sure that a calm, organized atmosphere is created and I work with students' creativity. We do a lot of practice and review. My dyslexic students accomplish the same or more than students without dyslexia.

IELTS

I have taught English proficiency for many years both here in the U.S. and in Brussels, Belgium while helping students prepare for this test.

MCAT

I have assisted many medical school applicants with their MCAT preparation along with their application essay. I am also familiar with the changes that the MCAT will be undergoing in 2015. My specialty is the verbal sections of the test.

Public Speaking

I have experience teaching and coaching Public Speaking at the high school and college level.

Study Skills

I have many years of experience teaching and tutoring study skills to middle school and high school students. In addition, over the past twenty years I have coached hundreds of students for all of the various standardized tests eg PSAT, SAT, SSAT, ACT, AP, IB and GRE.
