About Lauren

Lauren attended the rigorous Harvard Westlake prep school (Los Angeles, CA), and she has a B.A. in English Literature and Theater from Columbia University. She began her tutoring career in California assisting her mother, a child psychologist and tutor. After Lauren graduated college, she decided to stay in New York and began working for Kaplan Test Prep, specializing in reading, writing, and math skills for grades K-8. She currently works for three test prep companies and as a freelance private tutor for students in Manhattan. Lauren is especially skilled in teaching essay writing, critical reading, proof-reading, grammar, and test prep for all writing subjects for the SAT.
When Lauren is not spending time motivating and helping her students, she pursued her career as a professional actor and singer. She is a proud member of an off-broadway theater company and she frequently sings in cabarets and concerts in NYC. Lauren would be thrilled to coach students in theater performance, film, and public speaking, and would bring her twenty years of experience.
Lauren has a natural enthusiasm and passion for teaching and learning, and enjoys sharing this love with her students. She looks forward to working with you soon.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I completed a three month training program from Kaplan Test Prep in the summer of 2011 to become an academic tutor for grades K-8. I also assisted my mother, who has a private practice as a child counselor and tutor, and learned valuable skills from her about tutoring elementary school aged students.

Theatre

I have been a professional actor and singer since the age of five years old, appearing in numerous TV shows, films, voice-overs, and stage productions. I am currently part of an off-Broadway theater company in NYC, and I take classes at one of the top acting schools in Manhattan called the Barrow group. I have a degree in theater from Columbia University.
