About Lauren

Hi! My name is Lauren and I have an extensive background in education. I have a bachelor's degree in childhood education, a master's degree in literacy, and have worked as a daycare teacher, nanny, first grade instructor, and literacy tutor. I also have experience coaching children from ages 5-18 in swimming.

One of the requirements for my graduate program was tutoring students who had reading and writing deficiencies. I assessed each of my students to identify their specific weaknesses and used that data to create personalized lesson plans to build their skills in their area(s) of weakness. I met with each student twice a week for 45 minutes a day and at the end of the 16 sessions, I saw significant improvement in their reading and writing skills. I believe that, given the opportunity, I could have the same affect on any child. I think reading is so important. We spend so much of our time reading and it shouldn't be something that challenges us.

My background is in childhood education, student teaching, and tutoring.

I am very resourceful and honest, if I don't know the answer to something, I admit it, but then search for the right answer to help everyone.

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.
