About Laura

Hi! My name is Laura, and I'm looking for work as a private English and Spanish tutor. I'm CRLA-certified and worked as a peer tutor for three years at Winona State University, where I earned my B.A. in English Literature and Language and Spanish.

While my full-time job is actually in health insurance, I really miss tutoring. I love explaining concepts to students, finding out how they learn best, and seeing something they've been struggling with finally click for them. I'm friendly, patient, and enthusiastic about language!

I've studied Spanish since kindergarten; I went to a small private school where it was a mandatory course kindergarten through eighth grade. I studied Spanish all four years of high school, including CIS (college in schools) Spanish my senior year, which provided the opportunity to take the same Spanish course provided at the University of Minnesota and earn college credits. I majored in Spanish at Winona State University, and spent five months studying in Granada, Spain.

I have a B.A. in English literature and Language. The coursework in this program strengthened my understanding of English grammar and syntax, as well as provided plenty of opportunities to proofread a variety of writing. In my professional experience, I've had coworkers come to me to proofread essays for both school and work projects.

I do work full-time during the day, but I'm available weeknights anytime after 6 and all day Saturday and Sunday. I look forward to hearing from you!
