About Laura

I love working with kids and young adults to help them achieve their goals. I have been tutoring for over 20 years - the past four with an agency. I possess a BA in English, with a psychology minor. I spent many semesters on the Dean's list and received several scholarships. I started tutoring in college and found it so rewarding I continued! I've worked in many industries and positions over the years - marketing, publishing, real estate, higher education - this has brought me many years of real world experience. Wanting to make a positive difference, and express myself creatively, brought me to pursue graduate work in education.

I have helped dozens of students increase their SAT and ACT scores, get better grades in classes, and develop better study skills. I have a very multi-disciplinary method of teaching - I like to find out what the student is interested in and incorporate those interests into lessons. Personally I have many diverse skills and interests: literature, writing, art, history, music, film, psychology, astronomy - the list goes on... I'm very laid back and easy to talk to, but I always encourage and push my students to do all they can! I can work with you on homework, papers and essays, test prep, and/or I can create lessons to meet your specific needs. Also, I've worked with students who have ADHD and learning disabilities (like auditory processing disorder) and I've helped them organize, find their focus, and succeed! Whatever and whenever they need me, I'm there to support and encourage my students to reach their full potential!
