About Laura

I am a former high school English teacher, but I also spent time working in middle school classrooms. I have since moved into business but would like to get back to working with students by tutoring.

I can provide help with reading, writing, grammar, proofreading, studying skills and organization and test preparation. My teaching experience included work with a program called Second Chance Reading that specialized in improving reading skills and comprehension. I have also worked with several colleagues on business communication skills and formal writing.

Reading, writing, grammar, literature and other language arts

I'm excited and eager to get back to working with students and helping them become successful in school and enjoy their classes.

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

I am a former high school English teacher, but I have also worked with middle school students in writing, literature, grammar and reading.

Reading

I am a former teacher and specialized in reading for high school students. Most of my students were not native English speakers and had very low level reading skills. We worked on reading comprehension as well as reading skills and confidence with reading aloud.

Writing

I have worked with middle school students in the past on writing structure and comprehension.

Laura works amazing with my son. She's really interested and she really cares for my sons needs . She's very patient with my son. My son does get nervous having to read out loud but she does make him feel very comfortable . I'm very pleased with Laura. She's great!
