About Lauren

As a Certified Wilson Reading Educator, I specialize in teaching reading and spelling to children in Kindergarten through High School who are not making adequate progress in traditional settings. My expertise includes working with people who may have additional learning challenges, including Dyslexia, Specific Learning Disabilities, ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome, Autism, Cognitive Challenges, and Executive Functioning Disorders. Using highly motivational behavioral strategies, I inspire even the most reticent children to work hard to overcome their reading challenges. Previous students have all shown significant gains in reading and spelling as well as improved confidence and self-esteem.

I have a graduate degree in Education from Wheelock College and a B.S. in Elementary Education/Special Education from Indiana University. I hold a current Massachusetts State License in Preschool-Elementary Education and Special Education. I am trained in Orton-Gillingham and am certified in the Wilson Reading Method. I worked in both Public and Private Schools for many years as a Teacher, Inclusion Teacher, Reading Specialist, and Private Tutor before devoting myself exclusively to working with those who have Reading Challenges. After being sought-out by many families as a private tutor, I have discovered my passion for working with children individually in order to help them achieve academic success. I have knowledge and experience working with schools and, upon request, will coordinate my efforts with your child's teachers. I am available to advise or assist you in the Individualized Education Process (IEP).

As an advocate of Early Intervention, I am especially interested in working with young children to close learning gaps before they result in school failure. Parents often recognize reading issues in their children long before schools are willing to provide specialized instruction, thereby widening the learning gap and unnecessarily resulting in low self-esteem, anxiety, and behavior problems. If you suspect your child is not meeting grade-level expectations, is struggling to learn to read, or has been diagnosed with a learning disability, I can help them reach their fullest potential. I am a warm, nurturing teacher of young children who will inspire and support your child in meeting his or her educational goals.

Private tutoring will enable your child to work at his/her own pace while striving to close academic gaps and build confidence. If a learning disability is suspected, early diagnosis and tutoring support will help you understand the underlying causes and address them through tutoring as well as within the school system. I am dedicated to provide your child with the extra instruction needed for them to succeed and overcome their learning challenges.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss how I may help your child achieve academic success and meet their highest potential.

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.


I specialize in tutoring children with ADD/ADHD who are medicated as well as those whose parents have chosen not to medicate. I utilize a reward system tailored to each individual child. Rewards are earned by 'working hard,' rather than 'correct answers,' and include sticker charts, trips to a treasure chest, games, and edibles. I have worked with children with ADD/ADHD in Resource Rooms, Inclusion Classrooms, and tutored them for over 25 years.


Children with Aspergers can overcome their reading difficulties with the proper instruction. I use a systematic, multisensory approach paired with a positive reward system tailored to motivate each individual child. I have worked with children with Aspergers in Resource Rooms and Inclusion Classrooms, but have had the best results working 1:1 in order to tailor the program to their individual needs.


I have successfully used the multisensory, systematic Wilson Program to teach many children diagnosed with autism to read and spell. Working 1:1 allows me to design instruction and reward programs tailored to individual learning and behavioral needs. I have worked with autistic children in group settings, including summer camps and schools, but see the most gains when they are able to work in a quiet, structured, environment using a personalized approach geared to their unique needs.


I am licensed to teach Elementary and Special education in grades Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade. I am certified to teach the Wilson Reading Program and trained in the Orton Gillingham Method as well. I worked as a Reading Specialist with Kindergarten through fourth grade students for eight years and now tutor full time.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a BA in Elementary and Special Education from Indiana University and a Masters Degree from Wheelock College in Elementary Education. I am licensed to teach Both Elementary and SPED in Massachusetts. I have worked with young children in classroom settings and tutored for over 35 years.


I am trained in the Orton-Gillingham Method and am Wilson Certified. I worked in public and private schools as a Reading Specialist with preschool and elementary school students for many years before becoming a full-time private tutor. I enjoy working with children 1:1 in order to individualize instruction and help them progress as quickly and painlessly as possible!

Special Needs

As a licensed special needs teacher (K-8), I have worked with both children and adults. For the past 15 years, I have concentrated on teaching reading and spelling to children with multiple challenges, including ADHD/ADD, dyslexia, learning disabilities, autism, anxiety and PDD. Tutoring is individualized to meet each child's unique needs, with the goal being to get them reading and spelling as quickly and pleasantly as possible!
