About Laura

I am a graduate of The Crown College in Powell, TN. I have a degree in Music, and I am certified as a Phonetic Reading Specialist.

Even though I studied music in school, I have always loved reading. When I found out that my school offered a certification to teach reading, I was thrilled to be a part of it. I have tutored two semesters in the Knoxville public school systems and have taken several classes to attain this certification.

I love music. I have played piano for more than 12 years. I had many general music classes during my time at Crown College. Some of these classes include Piano Pedagogy, Vocal Pedagogy, Sight Singing 1-3, Music History, Song Writing, and Choral Conducting. In addition to piano, I have also taken some organ and voice lessons during my time at Crown College.

My favorite way to teach is with one-on-one interaction. I love working with young people and helping them to see results for their hard work.

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.

Dyslexia

I am certified from The Crown College in Powell, TN as a phonetic reading specialist. This is an Orton-Gillingham program that is recognized by Spalding and is multi-sensory. This program helps anyone at their level with spelling and reading. I tutored two semesters at the Knoxville public schools and took a class in Applied English Linguistics.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been tutoring the past two semesters in reading and spelling in the Knoxville public schools.
I have a certification as a phonetic reading specialist, which has prepared me to work with this age. I have also tutored in math and in music lessons for elementary students.

ESL/ESOL

In November of 2014 I received my CELTA Certificate in Dublin Ireland. I also have experience doing private tutoring and working as a volunteer in classroom settings in Brighton and London England for the last two years. Most of my experience with English has been with teaching adults, but I am willing to teach children as well.

General Music

I anticipate a degree in Music Ministry May 2013 from Crown College in Powell, Tennessee. Some of the classes I have taken include Music Theory I-III, Sight Singing I-III, Music History I-II, Piano Pedagogy, Choral Arranging, Teaching Music, Song Writing, Electronic Transcription, Choral Conducting, and Vocal Pedagogy. I have had experience teaching piano lessons, and I will be certified this May to teach music. During my time in college, I have also taken lessons in piano, organ, and voice.

Phonics

I am certified from The Crown College in Powell, TN as a phonetic reading specialist. This is an Orton-Gillingham program that is recognized by Spalding and is multi-sensory. This program helps anyone at their level with spelling and reading. I tutored two semesters in the Knoxville public schools and took a class in Applied English Linguistics.

Piano

I have played the piano for over twelve years. I began with the Thompson method, and I have also been exposed to the Suzuki method. This May I anticipate a degree in music ministry and a certification as a music teacher. I have taken piano lessons every semester I have been in school, and I have also taken classes in piano accompaniment and piano pedagogy. I have taught piano for the past few years, and I have had experience working with young children through college age.
