I attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and received a degree in Economics and a minor in Statistics. I currently work as a behavior therapist and a professional tutor.

I spent two years working at Kumon, a rigorous tutoring center dedicated to giving students confidence in school and advancing them past their grade level. I was given training on the best teaching techniques for each age level, and I gained experience tutoring students aged five to eighteen years old. I spent another two years volunteering at the Boys & Girls Club of Champaign, IL, serving as a mentor and tutor to the children there.

I now work in behavior therapy, where I help young children diagnosed with Autism learn to better communicate and interact with the people around them.

My extensive background in tutoring and behavior therapy has given me the ability to support students throughout their academic years and to give them the confidence that they can excel in school regardless of their background or mindset. I hope to instill inspiration and excitement in students, just as was done for me throughout my education.

I would love to give you the skills and confidence needed to excel in school. Please feel free to contact me for more information!

I spent all four years of my high school career on the debate team, which involved practice pre-written and off-the-cuff speeches. Our coaches included successful businessmen as well as college students with higher level public speaking experiences. I competed in many debate competitions, and continued to practice my public speaking skills through communications classes in college.

Very patient and knowledgeable

Laurel helped me prepare for a Quant I final. She is very patient and knowledgeable of the subject. In total we had about three sessions, and each time she made sure I had every formula and took time to break down the questions in their entirety; something my professor did not do. I highly recommend her.

Perfect math and reading fit for my middle schooler!

Laurel is great to work with. She was very adaptable to the areas of math and reading my son needed. She worked within the the areas of focus that was provided to us by his school. She was easy to communicate with for scheduling. I will definitely go to her as needed and gladly refer her to others.
