About Lori

I have been involved in educating people and helping them reach their full potential for more than 2 decades. Early in my career I worked with brain injured adults, but for the last 20+ years have been in schools as a speech pathologist. I love working with students of all ages, from elementary to adult. I've worked with students on executive functioning, test taking skills, speech/language, grammar and vocabulary. I have tutored SAT and English for foreign-born students over recent summers, and have taught Pronunciation classes at local community colleges to foreign born students.
In addition, I hold a Reading Teacher certificate and am certified to teach Italian 7-12 and Spanish 7-12. Over the years, I've taught Developmental Reading and Writing, and Italian at the college level. It's a joy to see my students reach their goals! In my spare time I love singing with various bands and musical groups, and spending time with family and friends.

As a speech pathologist, I have significant background and experience helping students born in countries other than the U.S. navigate these tests and skills.

I taught for Baltimore County Schools as an Italian and Spanish teacher for 4 years, have traveled in Italy extensively, and hold an MSDE certification in Italian.

Please contact me to talk about how I can help you reach your goals! I look forward to it.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I hold a B.S. and M.S. in Speech Language Pathology. In my experience in schools, many of my students have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD as well as speech and/or language disabilities. I have experience writing IEPS and service plans for children with ADD/ADHD in collaboration with the school psychologist and special educator.

Italian

I hold an MSDE certificate in Italian 7-12 and have high school and college teaching experience in this subject. I have traveled extensively in Italy and have passed the ACTFL proficiency tests. Since I am also Italian and married to a native Italian, I can offer additional cultural insights to the language-learning process.

Phonics

I hold a Reading Teacher certificate 7-12 from MSDE, which included specific study in the areas of reading assessment, children's literature, phonics, reading decoding and comprehension. My background and experience as a speech pathologist has included work on phonological processing as it relates to speech/language and literacy skills. As a speech pathologist working with brain injured youth and adults, I administered Reading tests such as the Gray Oral Reading Test and taught Phonics.

Speech

I am a certified speech/language pathologist licensed in the state of MD and have more than 20 years of experience. I have a Compton P-ESL certification, which qualifies me to work with foreign born adults on their pronunciation skills (specialized certification for SLPs). I have taught Pronunciation classes at Howard Community College for 2 semesters, and have worked with private clients at their place of business through speech agencies in Maryland.

Study Skills

I hold a B.S. and M.S. in Speech Language Pathology. The training I received during my undergraduate and graduate work included techniques for students with executive functioning issues, language disabilities, ADD/ADHD, and other disabilities, many of whom require study skills. Many of my students at elementary schools in Carroll County, Baltimore County, and Baltimore City, required study skills intervention, which I often provided as part of their IEP. I also have experience working with brain injured adults and teaching students in reading at the college level, which included study skills. The reading curriculum I taught for several semesters at Anne Arundel Community College and Community College of Baltimore County included study skills.

Voice (Music)

I have 14 years of music training in the area of reading and performing alto saxophone music in jazz, pep, marching, and concert band. I've performed in 4 talent shows, and one community theater musical. I've sung in the church choir for 2 seasons, and have sung with various classic rock, pop, and variety bands on a part time basis from 2008-2015.
