About Lawrence

I love helping others to communicate effectively! This comes from many years of experience in writing, research, and public speaking. I have also tutored and taught a wide variety of students--from elementary school students to graduate students writing their PhD's. My work experience includes working on Capitol Hill as a congressional aide as well as serving as a teacher trainer for the Peace Corps in Sri Lanka.

It was in high school that I first felt a love for learning and this was largely due to some particularly encouraging teachers that I had in English literature classes. I went on to earn a double major in English literature and philosophy (the latter with honors) at Colgate University in Upstate New York. Later, I earned a Master's degree in Pacific and International Affairs at the University of California at San Diego. I went on to receive a Ph.D. in Education at the University of California at Santa Barbara.

I believe that learning can be fun. It is also empowering. What gives me the greatest joy is helping those who are otherwise unseen or unheard to find the confidence and capability to express themselves. Starting in high school, I was given the gift of inspiration by some excellent teachers and it changed my life. I would like to pass that gift along.

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.

Literature

My undergraduate studies in English literature included a semester studying at Goldsmith's College in London.

Political Science

I served as a congressional staffer in Washington, D.C. and later served in the Peace Corps before earning a Master's Degree in International Relations at U.C. San Diego.

Writing

In addition to the writing I have done to complete my degrees, I have taught writing to undergraduates. I also have writing experience in a wide variety of contexts: As a congressional staffer in Washington, DC; doing technical writing for a new software start-up in San Diego and also writing published essays.
