About Laura


Bio

I recently graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a B.A. in Political Science and a minor in South Asian Studies. I have previous tutoring/teaching experience through a non-profit in Philadelphia where I volunteered as a tutor at an elementary school for an after-school program with 4-12 year olds. During my second college summer, I also worked as an intern with a Brooklyn-based organization and developed a two-month summer program for children between the ages of two and eight...

I recently graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a B.A. in Political Science and a minor in South Asian Studies. I have previous tutoring/teaching experience through a non-profit in Philadelphia where I volunteered as a tutor at an elementary school for an after-school program with 4-12 year olds. During my second college summer, I also worked as an intern with a Brooklyn-based organization and developed a two-month summer program for children between the ages of two and eight with the purpose of establishing a network of support for disadvantaged Hispanic families.

I grew up in Mexico City and lived there for 19 years before moving to Philadelphia to pursue my Bachelor's degree.

As the daughter of an English teacher, my first word was actually in English and I grew up visiting family in the United States every year, which gave me a great advantage in English studies in school. I have excellent writing and reading skills and have recently published several articles in The Huffington Post.

I strongly believe teaching is one of the most powerful and beautiful professions and one in which both tutors and students engage in learning. Moreover, learning should be fun and shaped according to students' skills, interests and ways of processing information. I am very interested in trying out different pedagogical methods to make learning more engaging and effective.

I would love to get the chance to work with YOU! I am flexible and greatly interested in the development of students' skills and appreciation of knowledge and educational materials.
