Slippery Rock University (Early Childhood and Special Education)
Students learn in a variety of ways. Whether your child learns best by listening, seeing, or using hands-on manipulatives, I have the ability to adjust my tutoring to fit their needs.
I have known that I wanted to teach from a very young age. I started by tutoring family members and developed my own approaches to teaching math. During my lunch period in high school, I volunteered in the Tutoring Center, assisting students who were struggling in English and math. It was the teachers who helped in the Tutoring Center that taught me how to teach ideas in more than one way. This has enabled me to help many students! I continued developing my teaching approaches in college, where I majored in Early Childhood and Special Education. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in May, 2014.
I look forward to talking with you and helping you achieve success in your studies. Students learn in a variety of ways. Whether your child learns best by listening, seeing, or using hands-on manipulatives, I have the ability to adjust my tutoring to fit their needs.

Our grandson had his first lesson with Laura today. It went very well. He liked Laura and was responsive to her and agreed without hesitation to his next lesson. She used stickers and cards, which I think helped him have some fun with the lesson.
The second lesson with Laura went very well too. Our grandson responds well to Laura. He liked her board game and seems to be enjoying himself.
Our grandson continues to enjoy his time with Laura. She keeps his interest for the hour and his skills in reading and math are improving.
We're hoping to have 3 lessons this week and then give him a break with follow up from us and his parents until school starts. Laura has been very creative in working with our grandson as per her review and we're extremely happy with his progress. Again our grandson seems to be making great progress, even better than anticipated. Very happy with Laura.
We went onto this week with Laura and we couldn't be happier with our grandson's improvement. His skills are improved, he seems more confident and Laura gave him some tools/ ideas to help him with his work.
She was outstanding. We wish her the best in her move and are disappointed she won't be around if our grandson needs some additional help in the future.
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.
I am certified by the state of Pennsylvania to teach Early Childhood (PK-4). I graduated from Slippery Rock University with a B.S in Early Childhood/Special Education. I have tutored three student in 3rd or 4th grade in all subject areas in the last year.
During my Student Teaching semester (Spring 2014), I taught phonics to students in a second-grade class. I have experience connecting the phonics that the students have learned to the stories in the Treasures curriculum. I am familiar with Common Core Standards.
