About Lara

I have always had an interest in tutoring and teaching. When I was in third grade I tutored my friend in math. While studying at the University of Vermont, I completed a TESOL/TEFL Certificate. Through this course I learned about ESL teaching theory, created original lesson plans, and worked with ESL students from Bhutan.
Last year I spent one year teaching English in Shenzhen, China. I was responsible for engineering a year long English language curriculum. I successfully managed classes of 50 students. In my free time I tutored one-on-one and in small groups.
I am currently working as an ESL tutor at Newton South High School.

I studied Chinese as my undergraduate major in college. I passed the HSK (Chinese standardized test) level 5.

I've had experience teaching English to students of all ages and proficiency levels. My experience studying Chinese gives me a strong understanding of language acquisition.
