I enjoy working with students of all ages--over the years, I've taught/tutored elementary, middle-school, high school, and college students.

I am a former classroom teacher with 7+ years of experience teaching and tutoring in multiple subjects. I enjoy working with students of all ages--over the years, I've taught/tutored elementary, middle-school, high school, and college students. My unique strength as a tutor is my ability to teach across multiple subjects. Many of my clients use me as their "one-stop shop" for academic support, hiring me on a regular basis to help with homework assignments, essay writing, organization/study skills, and test preparation, for whichever subjects are needed at the time. In my experience, students' overall confidence and academic performance benefit tremendously from this kind of holistic support. For me, education isn't just about performance and product, it's about enjoying the process of learning and discovery. The most important thing I try to give my students, above and beyond academic success, is a rekindling of their passion for knowledge and ideas. These are some of the words my past clients have used to describe me in their testimonials: caring, patient, interactive, creative, fun, enthusiastic, passionate, curious, insightful, supportive.

My years of experience have covered a wide range of grades and subjects. After receiving my Master's of Education, I went on to become a lead 5th grade classroom teacher, after student teaching in grades 3-4. I then transitioned into full-time home school instruction, where I twice taught the full middle-school curriculum (grades 7-8), which included developing and implementing lessons in all the core subjects. All of my home school students successfully transitioned into public high schools.

At the high school level, I have led students to success in Regents courses/exams in Language Arts, Global History and Geography, Living Environment, Earth Science, and Algebra, in addition to Honors and AP courses in English, World History, and U.S. History and Government. I have also helped prepare my high school seniors for the SAT in Reading/Writing as well as college applica

Excellent tutor

Lorien is an excellent tutor. She helped my daughter Earth Science, including preparing for the NYS Regents test. She is knowledgable about the subject (which is difficult and detailed) and very kind and motivating to my daughter. I was especially impressed by her willingness to prepare material ahead of time and her flexibility in tailoring the lessons to my daughter’s needs. I would absolutely recommend her to others!

Life Environment

My daughter has been struggling in her Life Environment class. Her first session with Lorie was amazing, she was able to connect with my daughter , and was able to clearly explain the subject to my daughter. She was able to take my daughter's anxieties away from the first session. Lorien lesson was very engaging, useful and most of all encouraging. I would highly recommend Lorien to anyone interested in learning.!!!

Great tutor with excellent credentials and warm, motivating personality.

Lorien was able to help my son prepare for his earth science regents. She was patient and knowledgeable and easy to work with. We will definitely use her again next year and would highly recommend her to anyone who is interested.
