I am currently a Special Education teacher for Oregon Connections Academy.

I am in my 5th year of teaching - 1 year teaching Science and 4 years teaching Special Education. I teach with a student-centered philosophy, doing my best to ensure that my students' needs are addressed and met. My specialties are PK-12 Special Education, Elementary Math and Language Arts, Life and Health Sciences, and Social/Life Skills. I do, however, have other interests and am willing to work with students needing help with ACT Prep and elective courses such as music. I've played the violin and have participated in music since I was 6 and still continue to play in my free time.

As I mentioned, I am a special education teacher, primarily working with students who have cognitive disabilities. My experience also includes working with children with ADHD/ADD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Other Health Impairments, TBI, Emotional Disturbances, etc.

I look forward to working with you and your child by using my expertise and experience to provide appropriate services so that your student may achieve academic success!

College Counseling,

College Counseling

I was an academic advisor for one of the dorms at a residential treatment center that I taught at. Students would come to me seeking advice on writing resumes, college applications, and test general preparation. Not all of my students that I worked with were college bound but we were able to find a community college program or vocational program that fit their needs to better equip them for a career after high school. My goal for each of my students was to find a program, whether it was a vocational school or 4-year university, that worked best for them.

Wonderful and very good at explaining

Spencer said, "Lauren taught me how to add fractions better which I didn't know before at all. She was funny like me and explained things so I could understand them. I could also ask her questions and didn't get confused." I'd say that's a great review for me! Thanks Lauren! See ya next Wednesday!

Dawn, 5 lessons with Lauren

Positive first experience

Great first lesson! My daughter loved Lauren and is looking forward to her next tutoring session with her. Lauren was very patient with my daughter and taught her using a variety of teaching tools. I could tell my daughter's confidence in math increased just after one lesson with Lauren.

Christina, 24 lessons with Lauren

Very Patient

Lauren has to be one of the best for Special Learners. I have two and she has satisfied Mom and motivated both kids; they are picky.
