About Laura

I have a Bachelors in Linguistics and Spanish, a Masters from Portland State U. in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), and experience teaching and tutoring English in Portland, Seattle, and Paris.

I worked in Paris, France for two years, and have traveled to Spain and Latin America.

I worked as a Bilingual Assistant at Hillsboro High School for five years, and I helped in many math classes - most often Algebra 1. I know the book backward and forward! I also helped run After-School Tutoring, and the students came flocking to me for help with their math or writing homework. I am THE BEST at explaining things!

I teach part time in the ESOL program at PCC, and have past experience with the IELP at PSU, PELA, and ELS at Concordia University. But I also love working with people one-on-one, and have tutored at community programs.

Message me and let me start helping you now! I can't wait to meet you.

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.

IELTS

I have my masters in TESOL and have both taught and tutored international students in all levels of English classes, including tutoring Intensive English students on how to improve their essays for their upcoming exams. I am amazing at explaining English grammar, and helping you convey your thoughts with more exact English, while adding variety to your essays, all the while strengthening your ability to produce a strong essay in all the formulas you are asked to learn. I can't wait to help you!
