About Laura

I am a teacher, turned stay-at-home mom, who can help your child excel in all Elementary areas, Middle School ELA (English, Language Arts, Reading), Social Studies, and Study Skills for disorganized learners. After 13 years of teaching (mainly in Florida), I know what standards the new FSA testing is requiring, as well as can help with the basics that many schools are leaving out of the curriculum. I have also taught internationally (Germany) and will use best practices in education from all over the world to help your child!

I have a Master's Degree in Special Education and can help navigate, remediate, and advocate for your special needs student, in addition to supporting students with learning disabilities in specific subject areas. So how can I help your family?

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.
