About Lauri

I have worked with different ages in tutoring and teaching English. Though I have experience tutoring Math, I always go back to teaching English. I taught as a 7th Grade English Teacher in Idaho for a year and found that my greatest joys during that time were working with the ESL and struggling students. Working as a Paraprofessional, I found that I truly love working with students one-on-one because then specific struggles can be addressed.
When I was younger, I struggled to learn (I was born premature), but those that worked with me individually gave me the strength to continue and improve. I wish to give this same encouragement and motivation to those I teach.

I currently have a Bachelor's in English Education and a minor in TESOL. This means I am certified to teach English as a second language. In my earliest teaching years, I worked with Kindergarteners teaching them to read. I later went on to tutoring college freshmen with their English papers. During my student teaching experience, I taught an ESL class of high schoolers, followed by an 11th grade English class.
I then taught 7th grade for a year, but found that I prefer individualized teaching.
I worked as a paraprofessional in a Resource Room where I worked with students that had learning struggles (such as developmentally delayed, autism, behavior challenges, etc).
I currently teach English as a Second Language online.

I am excited to work with your student so that he/she can grow and be confident and joyful in learning!
Feel free to contact me so that we may set up a time to study!
