About Lori

"Children are our most valuable natural resource."
--Herbert Hoover


Having been an educator for twenty-five years, and having spent most of that time working with children from preschool age through the fifth grade, I truly believe in this statement. My dedication and enthusiasm for teaching children extend far beyond the classroom. As a private tutor, I enjoy working directly with parents and teachers to help improve the quality of their children’s education. I have had the opportunity to teach children with multicultural backgrounds and different achievement levels.

Some of my professional experiences include evaluating students’ learning styles, skill needs, interests, and task commitment; planning and preparing lessons based on Common Core Standards to meet individual needs; incorporating hands-on interdisciplinary learning experiences; conferring with parents, teachers, and specialists to develop individualized educational programs; and teaching skills which foster critical thinking, problem solving, decision-making, and independent learning.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I earned a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from The George Washington University and have extensive experience in teaching kindergarten, first and second grades over the past 25 years. I am Florida state certified (ESOL endorsed) to teach all subject areas K-6 and currently tutor students throughout south Florida. As a veteran educator, I will create a customized curriculum for each student based on his/her needs, abilities, and interests.

Phonics

I am an elementary educator certified by the state of Florida. During the past 25 years, I have had the pleasure of working with children in kindergarten through grade 6. A majority of my teaching experience has been in early elementary classrooms where phonics skills and reading readiness are the top priority. I am able to rapidly assess students' needs and develop interesting lessons that make learning fun!

Study Skills

Study Skills are essential. As an elementary teacher with 25 years' experience, I have developed many strategies for helping students grasp new information. I am able to accommodate different learning styles and often prepare a variety of games to engage my students. I teach children how to apply these study skills to all areas of education.
