##### About Lauren

I have been a 7th grade math teacher at a Middle School for three years and I have a passion for hands-on, interactive teaching. I attended UCONN for five years and earned a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Math Education as a part of the NEAG School of Education, one of the top teacher preparation programs in the Northeast. I tutored throughout college and now continue to work with students on strengthening their basic skills. As a teacher, I believe that a mix between individualized, one-on-one instruction and discovery-based lessons can provide students with a strong foundation of skills that can apply to a variety of math topics. I find that this approach can instill a confidence in a child that allows them to succeed not only in math, but in other subjects as well. I work for the moment that I can see a student have that "A-Ha!" moment.

Being that I am a 7th grade math teacher, I have excellent manipulatives that can help with differentiation. I have experience teaching a wide range of both topics and learning abilities, which allows me to adjust my instruction as necessary and keep students feeling confident. I will always maintain an appropriate level of challenge without making a student feel overwhelmed in any way. I believe that it is essential for a student to understand the "why," before they can move on to the "how." I have additional experience teaching the underlying fundamentals of math that allow a student to really grasp a concept, rather than just memorizing it.

Please contact me with any questions, or to schedule lessons! I am typically available after the scheduled teaching day, or on Saturday and Sunday mornings. I look forward to working with you!
