About Laura

I am a NYS-licensed Psychologist with experience in tutoring/teaching both AP Psychology as well as Spanish. I have taught Psychology at the high school level, and worked last year on helping students prepare for the AP exam in Psychology. I find that Psychology is learned best when concepts can be explained in simple language and when daily applications can be shown. Although flash cards can be very helpful for learning more physiologically based vocabulary, reading a vignette about a case can help bring to life concepts related to abnormal psychology. We all use aspects of psychology in our everyday life, whether we are aware of it or not!!!

I have studied Spanish since 8th grade but also studied French and Portuguese as well when I got to college. My tutoring sessions are done completely in Spanish as an experience in "complete language immersion." The best way to learn a foreign language is to be exposed to it on a daily basis. We will augment our regular work with clips from the internet so that students can experience all different types of accents and regional vocabulary. I find that kids learn how to read and write in school but spend less time in learning how to understand and speak the language. Many kids express "shyness" about speaking in front of others in a foreign language so building confidence is key. Having just returned from a summer program in Ecuador, I am also able to provide kids with connections to others in that country for additional practice!

I would be willing to speak to you and answer any questions you may have about me or about the tutoring process! I expect that we will be able to do great things together!
