About Laura

I have been teaching kindergarten in Hoke county for the past 2 school years. Before that, I taught 4th grade for 2 years at the same school. Before moving to North Carolina in 2013, I lived in Virginia and worked at LaPetite Academy and Preschool for 5 years in all classrooms from infants to school-aged. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and Sociology Family Studies in 2013 from Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. While attending college, I was a reading tutor at the local elementary scho for 4 years. I earned my Master's degree in Elementary Reading and Literacy from Walden University in 2015. Since becoming a public school teacher in 2013, I have exceeded growth every year in reading and math. I am very passionate about teaching children how to read and instilling a love for reading.

I have successfully taught fourth grade and kindergarten math for 2 years each. I believe in the power of using manipulative and multiple strategies for struggling math learners. Everyone does not the learn in the same ways and I make sure to find a way to teach skills that meet the needs of every student.

I earned my Master's degree in Elementary Reading and Literacy because I am passionate about helping children learn how to read. I have taught reading and writing successfully in both fourth grade and kindergarten. I am experienced in teaching the reading strategies required for successful test-taking for upper grade students and experienced in teaching fix-up strategies and phonemic awareness that is necessary for beginning and struggling readers.

I have my Bachelor's in Elementary Education and my Master's in Elementary Reading and Literacy. I have taught both fourth grade and kindergarten for 2 years. I was a reading tutor at an elementary school for 4 years.

I have been a kindergarten teacher for two years, teaching phonics and reading to beginning readers. I also have a Master's degree in Elementary Reading and Literacy.

Please contact me if you have any questions about my qualifications, teaching style, and/or availability. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Common Core

I have been a public school teacher for the past 4 school years in a Common Core state. I used Common Core standards to create my curriculum for my lesson plans every week.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education (PK-6) from Longwood University. I also have a Master's degree in Elementary Reading and Literacy from Walden University. I have been a public school teacher for the past 4 school years (2 years in 4th grade and 2 years in kindergarten). I was a reading tutor at a local elementary school for 4 years while I was in Farmville, Virginia for my undergraduate degree.

Handwriting

I have been a kindergarten teacher for the past 2 school years. I teach my students how to write, letter formation, spacing, size, and line placement. We start with letter formation, sizing, and line placement. Once students understand the basic concepts, we move into learning to write words and using spaces. Then, students learn to write sentences using spacing and writing left to right.
