About Lara


Bio

I love to learn, and to help students realize the joy in understanding their world. I was a high school art teacher for 7 years, teaching Studio Art Classes (painting and drawing), as well as Art History. But my own desire to learn recently led me to go back to school to receive my degree in Information Systems Technology, which included programming in Python and Java, HTML and CSS, Photoshop, and Ruby. Having achieved an 800 on my Math SAT, and a 710 on my Verbal, I understand the structure...

I love to learn, and to help students realize the joy in understanding their world. I was a high school art teacher for 7 years, teaching Studio Art Classes (painting and drawing), as well as Art History. But my own desire to learn recently led me to go back to school to receive my degree in Information Systems Technology, which included programming in Python and Java, HTML and CSS, Photoshop, and Ruby. Having achieved an 800 on my Math SAT, and a 710 on my Verbal, I understand the structure of the SAT test questions, and can assist students in answering SAT questions quickly and accurately. I can tutor math up to pre-Calculus, having earned a 5 on my AP Calculus exam in high school.

I would love to assist you in achieving your goals of fully understanding the subjects with which you're struggling. My approach is never to teach just enough to 'get by', or pass a test. Only true understanding of the interconnectedness of the different subjects, and of how previous knowledge can be built upon with new knowledge, will allow for learning which is permanent and complete. I gauge each student's lesson plans to that student's personal needs, using a personalized approach instead of a 'one size fits all' methodology. Let me help you realize your true potential at a rate which lets you continue to improve without ever becoming overwhelmed.

I received an 800 on my Math SAT, and a 5 on my AP BC Calculus Exam.

I received a 710 on my Verbal SAT (Reading).

I've designed and created numerous websites writing the HTML and CSS code, and I have my Associates of Applied Science in Information Systems Management, for which I studied HTML, CSS, and various programming languages. Please see examples of my web designs on my portfolio website: laraklopp.com.

I earned my undergraduate degree from the College of William and Mary in Fine Arts. I earned my Master of Fine Arts in Painting from Wichita State University. I taught high school Art and Art History for 7 years, and I have had numerous shows of my own artwork though the years.

Please contact me today and we can start helping you learn how to fully understand the material you want to learn, so that it stays with you for life. We'll do this in a way that's fun, interactive, and conversational, and I'll adapt my teaching to your personal needs every step of the way.

Drawing

I have my undergraduate degree in Fine Art from William and Mary, which included courses on 2-D Art Foundations (emphasizing drawing), and Charcoal, as well as various painting and Art History courses. I received my M.F.A. in Painting from Wichita State University, which included drawing classes; during that time I was a graduate teaching assistant, and independently taught Drawing 1. I was a high school Art Teacher (still certified to teach art in VA in all K-12 schools) for 7 years.

I have my B.A. in Fine Art from William and Mary, which included courses in Watercolor, Oil, and Acrylic Painting. I have my M.F.A. in Painting from Wichita State University.

HTML

I studied programming and web design for two years while I earned my A.A.S. in Information Management. Even though Web 2.0 has superseded the old style of websites built solely with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, it is still important in the age of Wordpress to understand how HTML and CSS work, as even today customization and tweaking of websites require this knowledge. I've built numerous websites using only HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, as well as sites on the WordPress CMS platform, and I can help you acquire the skills to manipulate HTML and CSS as needed to accomplish your website design goals.

Algebra 1

Having achieved certification to teach Math Grades 5-9, I've demonstrated a thorough understanding of the math covered in those grades, which includes my favorite math subject, Algebra. Because I'm a certified teacher, I know how to discover what a student needs to do or see differently in order to grasp a difficult concept. To me, teaching a student to solve a problem isn't enough. I need to teach my students to understand the theory behind the problems. My goal is to foster comprehension, not just competence.
