About Laura

Hello! I have been a teacher for 22 years! While I love the classroom, I have discovered a passion for one on one learning. I am friendly, flexible, easy to talk to, and extremely organized and competent. My goal is always to make my student feel comfortable, identify strengths and weaknesses, and achieve improvement! I l taught in Elementary and at the Middle School level, and I feel extremely confident in both areas. My Bachelor's degree is in English, and my strongest tutoring subjects include, but are not limited to, all Elementary Subjects, writing, reading, editing, reading comprehension, and reading analysis. I look forward to working with you to obtain your academic goals! My schedule is extremely flexible.

When I'm not working, I love to read, walk, cook, and enjoy just about any activity outside or on the water. I canoe, kayak, jet ski, boat, fish, and play just about any game you can think of! I have a very big family and we love to get together and cook and play games and laugh! I'm currently working on a novel and I love to travel. Watching movies is another favorite pastime of mine. I look forward to learning about you!

My Bachelor's Degree is in English, and I have studied Reading, Writing, and Literature more than I have studied any other subject areas. Not only are these the areas that I have the most knowledge about, these are also the areas of which I am most passionate.

I have spent hundreds of hours successfully tutoring Elementary and Middle School students as they prepare for the ISEE and SSAT Lower and Middle Level exams.

Of my 22 years as a full time classroom teacher, 11 of those were in 2-4th grade. This is definitely my favorite level, due in large part to my wealth of knowledge and confidence in working with these children.

Thank you for reading my profile. I can not wait to start working with you to assist you in achieving your goals! Please contact me so that we can schedule a session time that is good for you!

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 have 11 years experience as an Elementary School Teacher (2-4th grade). I have tutored over 100 Elementary aged children over the years, in everything from subject matter to study skills to organization and time management. My reputation as a friendly, knowledgeable, successful teacher and tutor at this level is exemplary.

ISEE

I have tutored 18 students who were preparing for either the Lower Level or Middle Level ISEE. Each of these showed marked improvement from their assessment when beginning sessions with me and at the end of our time together. My strength is keeping them focused even when it's difficult material, and keeping their confidence up even when they may feel unsure about the content.

Study Skills

As a classroom teacher for 22 years, I spent a lot of time teaching study skills! And, for 2 years of my Middle School stint, I actually taught an entire semester of Study Skills to 6th graders!
