About Laura

I have experience working with students ranging from preschool age through college in public and private schools, after school programs and home bound tutoring. I have provided individualized, small and large group sessions dependent on need.

I’ve taught study skills, reading, history, social studies, literature, and writing workshops. I have also provided consultation services, pull-outs, and co-taught in public school settings in addition to teaching in a self-contained classroom for middle school students with special needs.

I have a professional teaching certificate from the State of Michigan with a certification in English (grades 7-12) and Special Education (K-12) which I earned from Eastern Michigan University where I am completing a master’s program in Reading.

I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a minor in writing from the University of Michigan.

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.

Special Needs

I have a professional certification through the state of Michigan to teach Special Education grades K-12. I have worked with a range of students with learning differences both individually as well as in small and large groups. I don't view learning differences as deficits. I believe we all have our own learning styles which include both strengths and challenges that are best served by differentiating for individual needs.

Study Skills

I taught study skills as a class to high school students as well as integrating it into the courses that I taught. Study skills includes the development of strategies for learning how to learn including note-taking, studying for tests and test taking skills. It also includes developing an awareness of one's own learning style to improve academic performance.
