About Lori

Tutoring isn't just for children. Teens, college students and adults are constantly looking to improve their skills in English and writing as well. Working with older students is my specialty. Whether you are applying to college, returning to school or seeking better career opportunities, I can help you to achieve your goals.

With more than 20+ years as an English teacher and adjunct college professor, I have have helped hundreds of students to successfully apply to and gain admittance to college. I also tutor students who need assistance in preparing for the reading and writing portions of standardized exams-- from the SAT and ACT on the high school level to the GRE and PRAXIS on the college level.

In 2014, I had the honor of being selected as "Teacher of the Year" in the high school where I teach. I have also worked as an adjunct professor at Long Island University and at Brookdale Community College. My educational background includes an MA in English/Teaching of Writing and a BA in Journalism/Sociology. In addition, I am a member of the New Jersey Writing Alliance-- an organization devoted to helping students to successfully make the transition from high school to college.

I provide essay writing, editing and proofreading assistance to students who want to set themselves apart from others-- whether they are preparing for college entrance exams, working on college applications, researching term papers or working on other written projects.

Services are provided in-person and online. Fees are flexible depending on services provided. Please note that all tutoring services are provided at my location in Old Bridge, NJ.

Very helpful and knowledgeable!

Lori was a tremendous help throughout our sessions. She was very patient, supportive, knowledgeable, and gave great resources. She was able to review more topics than I thought we would be able to within the month that I turtored with her! As someone who has bad test anxiety, she help me feel a lot more confident. I passed my reading section of the praxis the first time I took it thanks to Lori! S
