About Lauren

I am a creative teacher who engages students through active learning (when applicable). I have taught elementary and Jr High full time. I authored a book on the subject. Annually, I lead a Constitution Test Prep program - 100% of students in all 4 years have passed this graduation requirement. I was a formerly licensed teacher in English and Business (did not renew Mass. certification when I moved to IL).

I have owned my own business, have taught college level psychology and world religions. I have published two books; authored five. I love to write and to teach how to write well. I am working on my PhD and have many study tips and time management skills to pass on.

Lastly, I cheer your successes! Hope I can help you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Bible Studies

My educational background includes Bachelors of Arts: Religious Studies; Masters of Arts: Ministry. I have served for 12 years as a childrens minister, 5 years as a youth minister. I have been Ministry Director for Youth for Christ. Many of these opportunities also included preaching to adults.

Business

I am an entrepreneur by nature, having owned my own home based, small-businesses multiple times. I authored a book on business basics for entertainers.

I have worked in the corporate, small business and non-profit sectors. I have developed business intensification programs for a number of businesses - and networking is a favorite hobby.

Let me teach you those skills and polish those you already have.

Career Development

Often, it helps to have an outsider view the scenario. With experience in the corporate, small business and non-profit sectors, let me serve as your sounding board - helping develop your skills and programs. My skill set includes: community partnership development, fundraising, management, marketing, staff development and more.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was a full time 4th and 5th grade teacher for a combined total of 5 years. In addition, as a parent, I helped my children in all their subjects until high school. My skill set is probably better suited for grade 3 and older.

Study Skills

As an elementary and junior high school teacher, I taught my students basic study skills applicable for high school. As a PhD student, I have developed a number of study skills that I now present in a study skills session. Spend time learning, not searching for information.
