About Laura

Hello,

I am a certified Special Education teacher and certified school administrator. My husband and I moved to Evergreen a little over a year ago. He used to live in Breckenridge, CO and I used to live in Chicago, IL. I have over 15 years of experience working in the education field and am looking to return to education now that we have settled in Evergreen. My experience ranges from being a teacher in a high school setting to being a Special Education Director at a school just located outside of Chicago's west side.

While I am confident in tutoring many high school / middle school subjects, my strengths are in the areas of English and study skills. I understand that high school can bring challenges with organization and I have been formally trained to support student learning in the area of organizational techniques. My goal as a tutor and teacher is to instill confidence in my students so that they can be successful in school and the community.

I have a BA in English with a minor in Publishing from the University of Illinois. In addition, I have taught multiple sections of English throughout my educational career and spent my administration role in preparing an working with teachers to identify curriculum and skills to help students be successful in the area of English and Reading.

I look forward to working with all students and know that I can help you achieve your goals!

Sincerely,
Laura

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.

ADHD

I have a teaching credential in special education as well as a Special Education Director's License. I have taught special education for over 7 years. In addition, I was an administrator that oversaw a special education department of over 80 staff members.

I have worked with students with attention issues by helping create environments in the classroom and tutoring that remove distractions and create opportunities for students to be able to understand how to self-manage their attention issues. Students who are diagnosed with ADHD and ADD, must learn how to manage their work and schedule in a format that works with their organizational needs.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have a teaching credential in special education as well as a Special Education Director's License. I have taught special education for over 7 years. In addition, I was an administrator that oversaw a special education department of over 80 staff members.

Working with students with Autism can bring a variety of student needs to the forefront. Students diagnosed with Autism can range across many levels and it is necessary for the instructor to understand where the student is functioning and how schedules affect daily activity and productivity.

Special Needs
