About Lauren

My name is Lauren and I am currently in my 6th year of teaching as a teacher in a multi-age classroom. I graduated from Indiana University in 2010 with a bachelor's degree in Education for grades K-6. I am both Maryland and PA state certified and attended Princeton Center for Teacher Education where I received my credential as a Montessori teacher. In addition, I am also Wilson Reading program certified (description below) and have seen first hand how this program is successful and gives students confidence. As I am always looking for ways to improve my teaching on an everyday basis, I am constantly continuing my education with any chance that I get through attending workshops, presenting presentations etc.

As a Montessori teacher, I am extremely knowledgeable and well rounded in various teaching methods as well as educated on aligning the Montessori method to state standards and the common core curriculum.
I am a hard working individual who has a love for teaching and helping students succeed beyond their expectations. I am passionate about education and believe that any child can accomplish what they set out to do while loving learning at the same time.
As a Montessori teacher, I am able to use and create hands-on materials where the child can see, manipulate, and have a deep understanding of any concept. I am always making sure the students in my classrooms have what they need to reach their goals, but also help to see that my school community does as well.

I am certified as a Wilson Reading program teacher. Wilson is sometimes used as a reading intervention with students who are struggling with reading, comprehension, spelling, sentence construction, sight words, fluency, vocabulary, and fluency. This program was originally designed for students with learning disabilities who are having difficulty with language, although it is a great program for anyone and the results are outstanding!

By learning phonics with the Wilson Reading program; spelling is a breeze as it is weaved into the program and allows students the ability to understand the reasoning behind words that are spelled differently. In addition, all the concepts taught throughout this program are constantly practiced so students are less likely to forget the concepts previously taught.

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.

Phonics

I have been teaching a multi-age classroom with students ranging from 6-9 years old for the past 5 years and tutored for the past 3 years. I am certified to teach in both PA and MD and I received my Montessori certification 3 years ago. Most importantly, I am qualified to tutor children in phonics due to receiving my Wilson Reading program certification. This program has been known and proven to help children of any age who are struggling with reading and need an intervention.
