About Laurie

I am a certified teacher of K-6 grades, with experience in teaching grades 2,3,5 and 6. I am also a certified Special Needs teacher, with experience in all grades, K-12. My substitute teaching includes all grades and most subjects. As a tutor, I feel it necessary to find gaps in learning and fill those gaps so that the student will have a firmer foundation of knowledge.

I have a great interest in tutoring; one on one with the student who will receive undivided attention. This helps me to quickly access the student's knowledge, and helps me to gather ideas to better help the student to understand the subject. My list of experience is long and covers many states and countries. This knowledge has given me insights on ways to help a student, as I usually hear phrases like, "this is so easy!" or "this is actually fun." Anyone can achieve whatever they desire most. I feel it is my job as a tutor to help them find the easiest path.

I love to learn new things, so this brings excitement to my teaching, as well as a measure of fun. Learning should always be fun and exciting, it's how we learn best, and remember best! Yes, even for Maths, this is true.

If you want to fill in some learning gaps or figure out how you learn easiest, then I am the tutor you should choose. Concepts are not hard to learn, it's just that we all have different ways of taking in information. Let's work together to find out how to make that subject a easier for 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.

Algebra 1

I love Algebra, made A's in high school. I am certified to teach in Elem and JH. I recently taught a basic skills class that included Algebra 1 skills.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified teacher of K-6 grades, with experience in teaching grades 2,3,5 and 6. I am also a certified Special Needs teacher, with experience in all grades, K-12. My substitute teaching includes all grades and most subjects. As a tutor, I feel it necessary to find gaps in learning and fill those gaps so that the student will have a firmer foundation of knowledge. My teaching experience includes several states and countries. I especially enjoyed teaching England's National Curriculum, and draw from it when I need a fresh approach to help a student.

Special Needs

I am a certified teacher of Special Needs, K-12, with experience in all grades. I worked as a Resource Teacher in K-5, substituted a great deal of time in grades 6-8 and taught in a 9-12 class while the teacher was out on maternity leave. I taught a Basic Skills class for 7-12 grades which involved filling in gaps in learning so that they could pass the respective test they has previously failed. Overseas, I taught in a Special Needs school where my students were way behind their age level peers. In all of these classrooms, I helped my students to achieve what others thought they could not.
