About Lori

Does your child need help with Homework, English or SAT prep? If so then look no further. I am a fun compationate tutor. I make learning fun using lots of positive reinforcement.

Hi, my name is Lori. I'm a graduate of Adelphi University. I have a BA in English/Communications and hold a Masters Degree in English. I am an Effective English Tutor Specializing in Reading K-12, Compression, Spelling, Literature, Study Skills, Reading Skills, Homework Help, and SAT in the reading and writing portions. I am also able to help with papers, essays and anything else one might have to do in class.

I have been tutoring for over 22 years. I taught creative writing classes for Hofstra University Continuing Education Program. I've helped young students improve their reading and comprehension skills.

Ideally I'd meet with students either in their place of residence or in a nearby library; we could figure out what works best. I really enjoy helping students with writing and grammar so I'm very excited and eager to teach.

I try to be flexible with time while I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy, I offer makeup classes.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your success in your studies.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Ballet

I have been dancing since I was 5 years old. I have been fortunate enough to dance with some of the biggest names in the dance industry. I have taught ballet to pre-school thru adults. I have taught recital base classes as well as competition classes for 22 years.. My some of my students have auditioned for some of the big ballet and dance companies in the world.

Business

I have owned my own Ebay Store business for 11 years. I started it up all by myself. I market and promote the business. I have created promotions, blogs and drew traffic to my own store.

Cosmetology

I have been using make up professionally for the past 25 years. I've been fortunate to know how to apply it for stage use as well as just everyday wear. I know when make up is applied too much or it's just the correct amount. Most recently I worked with my sister and members of her Bridal Party for her wedding.

Film

I have a minor in Communication/Film Studies at Adelphi University. I have written and produced my own films while in college. One of my films that I wrote and produced was submitted into a contest for its content. I have also taught students thru the Saturday Morning Kids program at Hofstra University. There were wrote our own script and produced our own films. At the end of the program we had our own film screening with the students.

I spent 6 years as a Marketing Assistant working for a Mall Management Company. There I helped the mall tenants create marketing plans that would draw traffic into their stores. I also market my own Ebay business by using social media to draw traffic to my store.

Microsoft Outlook

I have been working in the professional workforce for 18 years. During that time the only e-mail we used was Outlook. Compared to the other services Outlook is the most effective and the easiest one to use.

Microsoft Publisher

I have been using Microsoft Publisher for most of my college and professional life. I have created effective marketing tools to market my tutoring business and my dance school. I created a newsletter for my franchise owners at work. The newsletter reached over 150 people. I added artwork and used creative font.

Needlework

I worked in a summer camp for 15 years in Homemaking. In the program we did needlepoint which included: cross stitch for grades 1-6. I helped campers who could not thread a needle and do the stitch the proper way.

Photography

I have had my eye behind a camera lens for the past 25 years. I graduated Adelphi University with a minor in film communications. It was there that I found my calling behind a lens. My film work as well as my photography skills were featured in a university exhibit. I was one of few selected for this honor. Since then I have photographed such great sites as the Grand Canyon, Scotty's Castle, Death Valley, Zion National Park, Bryce National Park. My photography doesn't stop there. I have had the honor of capturing celebrity moments at the stage door as well as at events.

I have been dancing for 19 years. I've been lucky enough to study with some of the biggest names in the dance industry. I got to study Salsa Dancing with two dancers ballroom champs and choreographers from the Fox 5 show So You Think You Can Dance. It happened to be the highlight of my dance career. I took their series of classes at Broadway Dance Center in New York City

Sewing

I have worked at a summer camp for 15 years in the Homemaking program. There I taught students on how to sew. We sewed together pillows, created needlepoint frames and canvas. Each camper at the end of the summer took home a sewing project as a keepsake.

Video Production

During my undergraduate years I wrote and created a video production. I had the honor of having the video submitted into a school contest. The video was viewed by the entire school. Upon graduation I worked with Students at Hofstra University. There I assisted in a program called "Create Your Own Video Project." I assisted the children in writing and producing their own videos. Each child at the completion of the program had a copy of the video that they created.

I'm working toward my Yoga certificatation. I've been doing yoga for 9 years. I was in a serious car accident and Yoga helped me with the healing process. Along the way I've been lucky enough to study with some of the famous Yogis in the industry.
