About Lawrence


Bio

I have experience in mentoring and tutoring of young people aged 5 to 17. I have been tutoring in some form or fashion for the past 25 years. I guess I got my start in tutoring youth from my church when I was a recent college graduate in the early 90's. Over the years I have become close to a few of the families at my church and have been involved in tutoring various subjects, but mostly math, to the children of these families.

I have experience in mentoring and tutoring of young people aged 5 to 17. I have been tutoring in some form or fashion for the past 25 years. I guess I got my start in tutoring youth from my church when I was a recent college graduate in the early 90's. Over the years I have become close to a few of the families at my church and have been involved in tutoring various subjects, but mostly math, to the children of these families.

One of my tutees that I started tutoring when she was in middle school, has gone on to earn several academic honors in her high school career and is now a student at the naval academy in Annapolis MD. Several other young people I have tutored on a personal level have gone on to maintain honor roll and principal list standing at their prospective schools.

I have also had success in tutoring students in reading through a YMCA program called Community Hope. This is a literacy program that identifies reading deficiencies and puts together a targeted program for the student to get them to the appropriate reading level.

I am passionate about helping students to grasp mathematical concepts and understand what they read. I like to use more of a coaching approach in tutoring my students. I think that a student is better equipped to grasp a concept or principle when they are encouraged to apply it themselves instead of just being explained to and shown how to do it.

I enjoy challenging my students to stretch their creative thinking abilities and push beyond their comfort zones. A major goal of mine is to bolster student confidence in their academic prowess which should lead to more successful test performance.

I graduated from a college preparatory curriculum in high school and finished Cum Laude from the Physics and Engineering school at Hampton University. Calculus was the highest level of classical mathematics that I have completed.

I am happy to serve Raleigh and surrounding areas. I prefer to tutor students in all levels of mathematics up to algebra and in reading comprehension and grammar. I look forward to helping many more students conquer their academic GIANTS!

I graduated from a college preparatory high school in the top 10% of my class. I have a B.S. from Hampton University where I graduated with a 3.0 GPA (I took a few English courses as electives). For the past 10 years I have tutored in a literacy program sponsored by the YMCA, where we used various strategies to improve students reading from 1st - 12th grades. I am familiar with methods such as Phonics Concentration game and Blend Phonics.

Bible Studies

My father was a pastor and a chaplain when I was growing up. I was raised in the church and made my first public profession for Jesus Christ when I was 12. I became deeply committed to my faith after I graduated from college and read the New Testament for the first time. I have taught ages ranging from 3 years to college aged students over the past 18 years. I recently completed reading the entire Bible and working on my second time around. I aspire to love the Lord with as much of my whole heart as possible. I do attend weekly church services and am a small group leader at my church.
