About Laura

I am an experienced reading and writing tutor who helps students from elementary through college sharpen their writing and reading skills, focus ideas in writing, develop college application essays, and edit and proofread their own work. We can work on reading assignments, vocabulary building, and reading comprehension. High school seniors, I can help you develop ideas for your college application essays, from brainstorming, to development of a draft, to fine-tuning and proofreading.

I have worked with elementary-age students with learning disabilities at Forsyth Country Day School and college students at Wake Forest University. I believe that reading is a core skill that can bring great pleasure and enjoyment--beyond immediate goal of helping a student to do well in school. I believe that writing is a way to understand and learn that offers its own rewards. Reading well lis a crucial link to writing well. Let's get started!

I can meet students at public libraries or other agreed-on locations. Online lessons are possible.
