I have taught in public, private, and charter schools for over 20 years, and I have been a private tutor for six years now, specializing in Reading and test preparation. I always work to individualize tutoring plans to ensure students receive the maximum benefits using various techniques, such as multimedia sources, technology, and the latest teaching materials. A key element in tutoring is the connection a tutor makes with a student which gives him/her intrinsic motivation to want to improve and realize that learning is fun. My ultimate goal is to have students look forward to the tutoring session and contribute as much to the experience as I do.
I specialize in ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages), reading and hold state licenses in (ESOL) and Language Arts. In addition, I have done SAT test preparation as well as review for state school assessments. I have developed many effective study strategies for students from personal teaching reflection and using good teaching practices. I've had a variety of experiences that include teaching overseas and learning foreign languages such as Spanish and Portuguese.
I believe all students can succeed with proper instruction and motivation. I think learning happens when it is purposeful, relevant to daily life, and engages students. It should teach not only knowledge but also critical thinking skills. I think learning is important to social and personal development, and I strive to be an educator who is results-oriented and hoping to make a difference in students' lives.

Very nice and professional and extremely easy to talk with and to understand. Eli, my 2nd grade Grandson, loves her already!
She came really prepared and explained his progress so we could know at what level he's at. Eli is very excited for her next lesson. We are sure she is going to be exactly what he needs to get caught up.Steve, 15 lessons with Laura
A good tutor with more patient
Laura’s voice and English speaking are very clear. It will help student understand questions faster. Reading is clear and give student more explanation about article, grammar.... at same time. I think I get right choice. Looking forward to see more classes with her.A, 8 lessons with Laura

She's a pretty knowledgeable tutor
I've been tutored by Ms. Laura for about half a year so far, and she's a great tutor. She helped me with school work, areas that I don't know well, etc. She knows what she's talking about.Alex, 42 lessons with Laura
Dedicated and Patient
Miss Laura has been a fantastic tutor for our daughter. Madison loves tutoring and has made consistent progress on her reading goals. Laura found material on Madison's level, as well as slightly above to provide room to grow. It is evident that Laura has a heart for each of the students she tutors.Molly, 103 lessons with Laura

Great tutor - improved SAT score by 160 points
Laura was a big help tutoring my daughter over a few months. Helped her with the material and perhaps the biggest benefit was strategy of taking the SAT. Her scores improved by 160 points. Thanks Laura!Jim, 15 lessons with Laura
