About Laura

My entire life, I've had a great love of both teaching and the English language. I started tutoring when I was twelve and immediately began substitute teaching after I graduated high school. I have always loved sharing my knowledge with students and helping them build confidence in their natural abilities. I majored in English and Creative Writing at FSU and have had a plethora of first hand experience with grammar, vocabulary, comprehension, and bringing words to life. In my career, I've been able to teach students everything from how to read to how to understand the most intricate writing.

I am currently applying to Graduate English programs across the country. I hope to be an English professor and teach students the value of literature and the importance of words.

I am available any day and any time! Please contact me and we'll set something up. Thank you for your interest!

ENGLISH QUALIFICATIONS
I graduated from FSU with an English degree. I did exceedingly well in each English class I took and have even published a chapbook of my writing. I am currently applying to grad school for English and spend the majority of my days studying and preparing for my career in this topic.

ELEMENTARY CORE QUALIFICATIONS
As a substitute teacher, I have taught students everything a normal classroom teacher would! I have experience preparing lesson plans and following texts to help students learn the common core in the classroom and would love to bring this to my tutoring. I have taught Elementary students in my entire tutoring career and have a great deal of experience communicating with them on a level that makes sense to them. So often, tutoring is not what you are teaching, but how you are teaching it. I know that I am able to bring this communication to each student and help them relate to what they are studying.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss your student's needs and how we can tackle your tutoring goals together!
