About Laura

My teaching philosophy is that all students can learn when they are taught according to their learning style. I am a qualified tutor who can assess a student's unique learning style and then approach the material appropriately. I have tutored students at all levels, from 6th grade through graduate school.

EXPERIENCE
I am a New York State Certified (7-12 grade) English Language Arts teacher with over 10 years experience in the public classroom. I have also taught SAT prep. classes as well as tutored privately SAT and ACT prep. (verbal portion). The students I have tutored have raised their grades in class, passed the Regents after initially failing, and/or raised their SAT and ACT test scores. I believe I can help your student succeed in whatever ELA struggles he/she may have.

SPECIAL CREDENTIALS
Upon graduating from SU, I received the senior writing award given by the English department faculty. This acuity in writing has enabled me to help high school students write and/or edit college essays as well as help college students with papers and reports.

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.

Proofreading

I have proofread many college papers for students in all subjects. I was awarded a writing award my graduating year from college.

Regents

As a full-time English teacher in New York state, I have years of experience preparing students for the English Regents as well as scoring the Regents. I have privately tutored students in preparation for the Regents exam, including those students with learning disabilities.

Good With Fussy Student

My daughter is a fussy student and Laura seems to be able to both engage her and establish a rapport that gives her the confidence she will need to ace the ACT test she is studying for.
