About Laura

I am the mother of three sons who all became Eagle Scouts, US Navy veteran, and a Blue Star Mother. I love to help people learn so they can succeed. I worked as a teacher's aide and Title I liaison for Elwood Middle School for 8 years where I also did after-school help sessions and summer tutoring.

I just completed my student teaching for my elementary license in December 2011. As the oldest of 9 children, I have always been around young children. I am a Christian. I am a non-smoker. I believe that anyone can do whatever they set their minds to.

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.

Algebra 1

I have been working with homeschooling students over the past 3 years in the areas of higher math. I have worked with Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Trig, Geometry, and Pre-Calc.

I have a strong math background, and I also have a support system to get assistance if I need it.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have completed the Transition-to-Teaching through Indiana Wesleyan for an Indiana Elementary license, as well as Red Cross training for First Aid/CPR/AED.

I was a teacher's aide for eight years at Elwood Middle School prior to getting my degree in Business Administration so that I could enroll in the Transition-to-Teaching program with Indiana Wesleyan. During this eight year period, I also did after school and summer tutoring for students.

I completed three semesters of student teaching in an elementary setting. I was in a first grade, a second grade, and a sixth grade classroom. I was given high reviews by my coordinating teachers and by my university supervisors.

I was a den leader and the committee chair for my sons' Cub Scout pack and then was a committee member in their Boy Scout troops.

English

I enjoy working with the grammar and the English language. I have been nicknamed "The Grammar Guru" by my sons and former students when I worked as a teacher's aide at Elwood Middle School.

Reading

I have passed the Reading Specialist Praxis test to obtain my transition to teaching certificate from IWU.
