About Laura

Hi!

I am a certified elementary teacher having earned my degree from Cornerstone University in 2003. I hold a current Michigan teaching certificate with endorsements in elementary education, language arts, and early childhood education.

My passion is to make learning fun whether that be in a regular education classroom or in a one-on-one tutoring setting.

One thing that is important is to establish clear, definitive and reachable goals for tutoring. After those are established, I go to work coming up with a variety of strategies to help students achieve success.

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.

Bible Studies

I attended a Christian College, Cornerstone University. Upon completing my elementary education degree, I received certification as an ACSI educator (Association of Christian Schools International). I also taught Bible as a core subject daily at my school for five years. I used the Positive Action curriculum. I also led 1-2 schoolwide chapels each year.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a current Professional Michigan Teaching Certificate. I hold certification in Elementary K-5 all subjects (K-8 All Subjects Self Contained Classroom), Language Arts (BX) 6-8, and Early Childhood Education (ZA).

Elementary Math

I have taught elementary math at the kindergarten, second, third, and fourth grade levels. I enjoy helping students build confidence in an area that was difficult for me as an elementary student. Using creative ideas and manipulatives are a great way to teach math in a fun, easy to understand manner.

Handwriting

I have classroom teaching experience with Handwriting Without Tears, D'Neilien, Manuscript, as well as cursive instruction.
