About Lauren

Thank you for taking the time to read my bio. My name is Lauren and I have been a certified elementary school teacher since September 2006. In 2008, I earned my Master's Degree in Literacy and began teaching for the New York City Department of Education. I have successfully completed 7 years of teaching grades K, 1, 2 at a public school in NYC. I have also taken on a number of tutoring jobs throughout this time. I have most of my experience tutoring students in grades K-3. I characterize myself as patient, kind, and eager to help students succeed. Your child's success is my number one goal.

Literacy and Reading are the areas in which I obtained my Master's degree in. I am familiar with a variety of reading programs used within the New York City school system. Teaching children to read is an area in which I have always yielded positive results.

I am certified in Elementary Education, Grades K-6 and have taken coursework in reading, science and social studies.

I am certified and trained in teaching phonics to young children. I am familiar with the progression of acquiring and learning new sounds.

If you want your child to experience success and reach their greatest potential, please feel free to contact me. I am looking forward to working with 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

As a certified teacher, I have attended a number of Professional Development workshops that addressed the implementation of the Common Core in ELA & Math. I have extensive knowledge of aligning curricula with the common core learning standards. I am also familiar with the Common Core exams for ELA & Math and scoring/analyzing them.

Elementary (K-6th)

In June 2006, I received my certification in Elementary Education, grades K-6 from Long Island University. I have worked for seven years under this certification in an elementary school. I have also tutored a number of elementary school children in grades K-3.

Handwriting

I am qualified to teach handwriting because, as a certified elementary teacher, I have been trained in areas such as proper pencil grip, how to introduce students to drawing various types of lines before they start writing letters, and the type of papers children do best with when they are learning how to write. Specifically, I used the Wilson Fundations handwriting program to teach handwriting in grades K-1.

Reading

I received my Master's degree in Literacy in 2010. I can improve fluency, comprehension, decoding and analytical reading skills. I am well versed in the common core.
