About Laura

I graduated with honors from Houghton College where I majored in English and Writing (with a minor in art). While there, I tutored high school students for a year by looking over their essays, poems, and short stories and helping them develop the content and express themselves better.

I enjoyed my time as a tutor because I was able to see the students improve and expand their writing horizons. This is something that I enjoyed doing in college, myself, as my professors did the same for me.

I have a passion for writing and editing with a love for the English language and languages in general. I enjoy almost everything about it. I know that I would enjoy tutoring future and current writers; helping guide their abilities even if only in a small amount.

I took French lessons for five years in high school as well as spent a short amount of time in Paris, France studying the art and architecture.

I have a Bachelor's in English and Writing, spent five years as part of a writing peer's group at my local library, and another year as a writing tutor for high school students. I am very eager to help anyone that I am able to with their writing.

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.

Drawing

I graduated college with a minor in art, studying multiple forms of artwork. Drawing is by far my favorite medium as I have practiced and worked hard at it for as long as I can remember. I have also spent two weeks abroad studying the different artwork and museums in London and Paris as part of my education.
