About Lorri

My love of teaching students comes from being a lifetime learner, and having the pleasure of watching students blossom and take pride in their achievements. Encouraging students and letting them know their hard work and interests is valued is an important part of the tutoring process. Using their interests, experiences, and prior knowledge enhance their ability to enjoy learning and retain information.

I am a retired certified teacher in Elementary Education and Special Education. Currently I substitute in a local elementary school and also do volunteer work with special education students in the area of pet therapy. My schedule in flexible, and I work with students in a quiet environment such as your local library. I am very patient and value the importance of students understanding the reasoning skills needed to apply their knowledge to every day life.

I have training in the Wilson Reading Program which is a specialized program in phonics and spelling which uses manipulative methods for helping students retain the skills in long term memory. I have also worked with students with ADHD in the areas of organizational/study skills and methods to retain their focus. In the area of math, I use manipulative methods for learning basic facts.

I look forward to hearing from you and working with you to achieve success in your learning.
