About Laura

I am a teacher with 12 years of experience in Palm Beach County schools. I love to teach reading, K-6 and also help students with test-taking strategies, especially with standardized testing in the Spring. I have state of Florida certification in Elementary Education. I have worked with grades kindergarten through 5th grade. I also have a master's degree in Reading.

I enjoy working with students who need help in reading, especially the fundamentals, such as phonics, phonemic awareness and fluency. I enjoy teaching writing, with an emphasis on expressing thoughts and developing vocabulary. I also believe in communicating in many forms, such as formal letter writing and essays.

Because science and social studies are integrated into the curriculum in most schools, developing the vocabulary and background knowledge on these topics is essential before diving into the subject of study.

I would like to set a time to meet with the student and parents to discuss the needs and goals that we can work on, as well as motivational activities that can be implemented. I understand the new standards that are being implemented in the public schools and I will work with any/all teachers that are a part of your child's academic environment.

I also have experience working with middle school students. I enjoy seeing the student improve in skills as well as seeing them grow as a person. I now have experience with college students in writing research papers and any studying that is required for college.

I would love to work with your child in any area that they need as well as enrichment of skills. Reading is the foundation to an education, so let's get started!

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.
