About Laurie

Hi there! I have been a teacher for over 15 years, and I love what I do! I have a current teaching license, and I am certified to teach k-6 students. My recent education from Benedictine University has allowed me to receive my Master's degree in reading and literacy. I am hoping to become a reading specialist with this degree. I have learned many strategies and techniques for getting students to see their full potential and progress in comprehension, vocabulary, writing, phonics, and fluency, just to name a few. During my program, I was fortunate enough to tutor a kindergarten student in reading. After assessing, diagnosing, and implementing strategies to fit her needs, she moved up one whole reading level in just a matter of 10 weeks, roughly 10 hours of instruction. It was so gratifying being able to help her with her reading struggles. We really formed a special bond! Aside from tutoring in reading, I can also be of great help in math, science, and social studies. All of these content area subjects share something that I have a passion for... reading! I feel confident that I could help your student grow and close the achievement gap, so that s/he can feel successful within their classroom! Hi there!

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.

ADD/ADHD

My daughter was diagnosed with ADD 10 years ago when she was 9. I know what it takes to provide those students with organizational skills so that they can achieve their goals and objectives. I have also had students in the past with an ADHD diagnosis. I allowed those kiddos to take brain breaks from their work and I also put them on a sensory diet, which just means that they had to do wall push ups, wheel barrel walks, etc. so that they could release some of their pent up energy.

Autism

I have worked the past 8 years with children with autism. These students are near and dear to my heart, and I always find a way to build a strong relationship with them. I have experience with implementing scaffolds and various activities so that they can be life long, successful learners.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a teacher for many years. I am also certified to teach k-6 in the state of CO. I received my BA from UNC Greeley and have just finished my MA in reading and literacy.

Phonics

I have had quite a bit of experience teaching phonics to emerging readers in my recent positions as both a kindergarten teacher and a preschool teacher. My recent educational background in reading and literacy has also prepared me for teaching phonics. I also taught and implemented strategies for my kindergarten case-study student during my program.

Reading

I am qualified to teach phonics, phonemic awareness, comprehension, fluency, vocabulary, and writing.

Special Needs

I have worked with special needs students for the past 8 years. I have modified instruction and implemented scaffolds so that they can be successful. I have put work baskets, picture schedules, etc. into place to support them through their activities. During my 8 years working with special needs children, I have taught students with downs syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, and behavioral needs. I feel confident that I could support a student with special needs.

Study Skills

I have learned a lot about study skills from being a teacher for so long. Study skills are the foundation of every ounce of homework. Utilizing graphic organizers is crucial for organizing your thoughts and what was learned. Proper note taking is also a key component.
