About Lauren

I have a passion for teaching and taught in an elementary school for 10 years before deciding to stay home with my children after the birth of my second child. I taught 3rd grade for 6 years (all subjects) and 5th grade for 4 years (all subjects). Throughout the past 10 years I have also tutored high school and middle school math students in pre-algebra, algebra 1 and algebra 2. I love working with people of all ages! I put forth my greatest effort to make sure my students understand the concepts. With my teaching background, I will bring a wealth of knowledge and resources to help your child succeed in any subject area. I am willing to look for new and different ways to make concepts more relative and meaningful for my students!

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.

Algebra 1

I have tutored high school and middle school students in Algebra 1 for 3 years. I enjoy working with numbers, and can teach students to break down word problems and equations into simple, easy to understand pieces.

Algebra 2

I have a strong background in tutoring high school students in Algebra 2. Math is and has always been a passion of mine, and I hope to help your child learn why certain processes and procedures work throughout math. Once they understand the why, everything else seems to build and fall into place.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught, and am currently teaching in an elementary school. I taught 3rd grade for 6 years, and am currently in my 3rd year of teaching 5th grade. I have taught all subjects, and bring to the table a wealth of knowledge to help elementary aged students.

Elementary Math

I've taught elementary math for 9 years. I taught 3rd grade math for 6 years and 5th grade math for 3 years.

Elementary Science

Science is one of my all-time favorite subjects, because there are so many cool hands-on activities that can be done to teach most scientific topics. With every lesson, I will try to include something engaging and interactive to try to get your child involved so that they content begins to come to life for your child.

Prealgebra

I have tutored high school and middle school students in pre-algebra for 3 years. I enjoy working with numbers, and can teach students to break down word problems and equations into simple, easy to understand pieces.

Reading

As a child I struggled in reading myself, but have turned into an avid reader. Therefore, I have learned first hand just what it takes to get children who not only struggle to read, but also those that hate to read, to enjoy reading. By using strategies during reading and breaking the text into smaller pieces, I will work to get your child to not only find more success in reading, but hopefully become a life-long reader.

Spelling

Throughout my teaching career, I have learned valuable strategies in helping children learn the English language with all of the strange and confusing spelling patterns and exceptions. By learning word parts and segments, children can begin to break apart words to uncover tricks in how to spell.

Study Skills

As a student who struggled in school myself when I was younger, as well as being a teacher in grades 3 and 5 for the past 9 years, I have learned many different strategies to help students study and retain learned information.

Vocabulary

I have done a lot of work with root words, prefixes, and suffixes. I can help students break apart words to make them easier to understand.
