Got glint? Glint is passion. It is the spark that sets things in motion. But how do you keep the fire going? As an educator with a masters from Brown University, a producing artist, a mentor by day and creator by night, I understand that success must be fueled by desire.

For the last three years, I have focused on what sparks my students to lean forward. I’ve dedicated time to volunteering with Good Shepherd Services to serve as a Curriculum Coordinator for youth programs. Outside the non-profit sector, I've tutored students with test preparation at centers across New York and taught classes that review material from the ISEE/SHSAT, SAT/ACT & Regents exams. In 2014, I was hired by the Ivy Team to mentor students through the application process and have since helped hundreds of students gain acceptance into the college of their dreams.

Though I didn’t go to high school in New York, I understand the frustration of juggling academic challenges with individual pursuits. When I was 8 years old, I began to struggle with focus because I was always traveling for figure skating competitions. So my parents hired a teaching artist to help me in the off season. She would sing to me the multiplication tables and grammar rules from "School House Rock" songs. Those funky jingles stuck with me and continue to influence the foundation of my approach: ignite the glint that makes learning and academic planning exciting yet manageable.

My experience has taught me that play is the thing. I always enjoy demystifying the enigma of concepts, like quadratic formula or subject/verb agreement, with fun rhymes or tricks that keep my students and their brains engaged. The more fun they have, the more likely they’ll be to take agency over their own education.

Great SAT Tutor

Lauren took the time over 6 weeks to build up my rising senior son and make him understand the SAT game much better. With her patience and expertise he will now approach the test with 100% more confidence and preparation. His practice scores rose by 10-20% during that short time and he was very pleased with her ability and professionalism. Thanks Lauren!
