About Laura

Working with children and helping them learn that reading is not just a subject, but an adventure into a fantastic world of imagination as well as important for their learning experience in all subject areas is my passion. I have been a teacher since 1999, and have spent most of my teaching career working with struggling readers. I have been a third grade teacher for 16 years and have experience working in both the traditional classroom as well as online as a digital instructor. I have also tutored regularly outside of the regular classroom for my entire career and have experience with Kindergardener through 5th grade. My goal is to teach children strategies to decode words, increase their vocabularies, and recognize phonetic patterns as well as utilize other word attack skills to increase their reading while keeping the learning process fun.

I have been married for 13 years, and have one child who is attending his 2nd year of college to become a computer engineer, focusing on designing video games. I love animals, and have 3 dogs and 5 cats who get along beautifully and brighten my everyday life with their furry antics. I enjoy reading, gardening, playing board games, and exploring all the fun things that our beautiful city has to offer. I love children, and feel it is my calling to help create a literate generation of future leaders. I am eager to help your little one grow learn!

There are many things that make me an outstanding English tutor. I studied elementary education during my undergraduate work and my emphasis area was English. I extensively studied children's and adolescent literature and am able to help students recognize the underlining themes in stories, and have many fun ways of helping students recognize story elements. Proper grammar and writing skills go hand in hand with learning to read, as writing is the "flip side of the coin" to reading itself. Integration of skills is the best way to approach the teaching of English. I have also passed the exam required by the Ohio Department Education under the "3rd grade Reading Guarantee" rule and am certified to teach struggling readers at this level.

As a certified K-8 elementary school teacher, I have worked with many different types of students in all subject areas for 16 years. I approach learning with zest and help children see that learning can be fun. There is nothing more important to me than helping a child realize their full potential and gain the confidence they need to find success in their learning.

I would love to get to know you and your child, develop a plan to help them succeed, and find the love for learning that will take them through their entire educational experience. I believe that parents play a crucial role in their child's education and through a partnership with me I am confident that I can help your child improve in their areas of weakness and turn them into areas of confidence and self-pride. I am very excited to work with you and your child on their journey to becoming the very best student they can be! Please contact me to schedule private tutoring session today!

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)

As a certified K-8 elementary school teacher, I have worked with many different types of students in all subject areas for 16 years. I approach learning with zest and help children see that learning can be fun. There is nothing more important to me than helping a child realize their full potential and gain the confidence they need to find success in their learning.

STAAR

I have been a certified teacher in Ohio preparing students for various state testing requirements for 16 years. I have tutored them both in person and online with great success. I've worked with students in other states via online learning and have found that the skills required to pass various state testing mirror each other and I am a pro at researching other state required core competencies and providing instruction not only in each subject area but also in test taking skills.

Study Skills

Knowing HOW to study is just as important as retaining the information you are studying. I have specific strategies that I use with students to help them learn how to find important key ideas and commit them to memory. Study doesn't have to be boring, but rather a means to an important end of securing more confidence in test taking abilities. As a certified K-8 elementary school teacher, I have worked with many different types of students in all subject areas for 16 years.
