About Lauren

I graduated from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania in May 2013, certified as an Elementary Teacher for students in Kindergarten through Sixth Grade. I started substitute teaching at a few of the school districts in Erie county that following school year (2013-2014). After a year of substitute teaching, I decided to go back to Edinboro University of PA to begin working toward my Master's degree in Reading. I graduated in December 2015 and became certified as a Reading Specialist in Kindergarten through 12th grade.

As I worked on my MEd. in Reading, I continued substitute teaching to gain experience in the classroom. After obtaining my masters degree, I was offered a Long-Term substitute position as a Reading Specialist at a local school district where I had the opportunity to work with small groups of struggling readers. Last school year (2016-2017), I taught 2nd grade at the same school district and I am excited to teach 1st grade this upcoming year. I have had many opportunities to teach all subject areas in elementary school, including Math, Reading, Science, Social Studies, Word Study, etc. Along with teaching, I have tutored students from various grades at the elementary level. I am eager to work closely with those who are struggling in any specific Elementary subject(s) and help them to become successful in their learning.

I have always loved Math. It was my favorite subject in school growing up. I feel that I have a deep understanding of how Elementary Math is taught and have had numerous opportunities to teach it in a variety of grade levels.

Through pursuing my Med. in Reading I have enhanced my knowledge in every aspect of the English language. I have learned many successful strategies for teaching Reading, Writing, and Word Study. I also have experience in assessing a student to determine their reading level and using that data to plan activities according to a child's specific needs.

Throughout all of my schooling, both undergraduate and graduate, everything I have been learned has been connected to the Common Core State Standards. I have a thorough understanding of the expectations established by these standards and am familiar with adhering to them during my instruction in Math and Language Arts across the Elementary grade levels.

I am a PA certified Elementary Teacher and have four years of teaching in a variety of grade levels.

If you are struggling in any Elementary subject, I would love to hear from you so we can schedule your first session. I am available most evenings Monday-Friday and Weekends (anytime) during the school year and I have a flexible schedule throughout the summer. I am also willing to meet at a location that is most convenient for 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.

Common Core

Throughout my undergraduate and graduate education, I have used the Common Core State Standards while planning all of my lessons for my student teaching and field experiences. I have also implemented lessons that adhered to the Common Core State Standards while substitute teaching.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education (K-6) and am a certified Elementary Teacher in the state of Pennsylvania. I also have a Med. in Reading and have my Reading Specialist certification in Pennsylvania. Last, I have three years of experience substitute teaching in Primary and Upper Level Elementary classrooms.
