About Lauryl

Hello!

Education and learning are core to my being, both as a student and a teacher. I have always loved school (I just recently completed my Master of Public Health at Tulane University) and I want to tap into that same curiosity and love of learning in my students. I individualize my approach; I test out strategies that are both effective and enjoyable, because learning shouldn't feel like torture.

As a student at Northeastern University, I served as a peer tutor as well as an ESOL teacher for the campus' dining hall employees. I have worked in classrooms (including special education classes) as a teaching assistant for children ranging in age from two to fourteen, working primarily on reading and writing skills.

I love language! Reading and writing are longterm passions of mine and I find neurotic enjoyment in proofreading and editing. My undergraduate degree in linguistics honed my analytical skills and trained my brain to locate patterns and notice anomalies. I find typos in everything I read (seriously, everything). I also completed coursework specific to bilingualism, language acquisition, reading, and ESL/ESOL education and have specialized knowledge in those areas.

I look forward to working with you! Please feel free to contact me with questions or to schedule a lesson.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have a Bachelor of Science in linguistics, with specialized coursework in bilingualism, language acquisition, and ESL/ESOL education. I also tutored English to adults with varied linguistic backgrounds through an organization I co-founded at Northeastern University.
