About Lara


Bio

I love working one-on-one with students of all ages, from preschool to college. I work hard to individualize each lesson to meet each student's personal needs. I make tutoring sessions enjoyable and break down difficult concepts so they're easily understood. Helping students improve their skills and gain confidence in an area where they previously struggled is so rewarding! I have a warm personality and rapport with people of all ages.

I love working one-on-one with students of all ages, from preschool to college. I work hard to individualize each lesson to meet each student's personal needs. I make tutoring sessions enjoyable and break down difficult concepts so they're easily understood. Helping students improve their skills and gain confidence in an area where they previously struggled is so rewarding! I have a warm personality and rapport with people of all ages.

My background: I have a bachelor's degree in biology, a master's degree in secondary science education, and a Colorado teacher's license. I taught middle school science for 12 years. When my first child was born in 2007, I quit teaching and started tutoring part-time. I loved it so much, I started my own tutoring business called Peak Tutoring. I now tutor full time, both in-person in Colorado Springs and online with students around the world.

The subject for which most parents hire me is math, but I have also helped students in reading, writing, history, science, organization, note-taking skills, and test preparation skills (including SAT prep).

Please contact me if you'd like to set up a session! I'd love to help.

Elementary Education

Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

I have taken math classes up through the college calculus level. I enjoy math. I especially enjoy breaking difficult concepts down to help kids understand them. It's very rewarding to see the "light bulb click on" when I have helped a student grasp a new math concept.
Elementary Science,

Elementary Science

I have been teaching middle school science for twelve years. My degree is in environmental biology, but I have also taught Earth, space, and physical science. I strive to make complex concepts easier to understand and make science FUN for my students.
Phonics,

Phonics

I have been working with a preschool student to teach him letter recognition, letter sounds, blending 3-letter words, and writing upper and lower case letters. I make everything hands-on and FUN! I only see him twice a week, but he always asks if I can come again the next day. He was originally going to have to do another year of preschool instead of entering Kindergarten in the fall, but now he will be ready. I can put you in touch with his mom if you'd like a referral.
