About Lori

Currently, I am a high school English teacher. I have taught for 18 years in middle school and high school. I also spent a few years as an adjunct English instructor at the college level.

Teaching reading and writing is difficult in a classroom full of students. I've always loved working with kids one on one, and it makes a world of difference for them.

I do understand that some students really struggle with writing and / or reading. Whether the problems with writing are grammar and mechanics or development and organization, I have a lot of strategies I teach students to help take them to the next level (or the level beyond that). If the problem is with reading, I have some tips and tricks too to make the text more manageable and to figure out what the writer is saying.

18 years teaching experience

Take heart! Even students who are proficient writers sometimes feel incompetent because writing is hard and very personal. I have a way of helping students look at writing (and reading) more objectively to take some of the stress from it. They cannot help but improve.
