I am a middle school teacher in Philadelphia. I am certified to teach all subjects K-6, English Language Arts grades 7-12, and Mathematics and Science grades 7-9. I have experience teaching first, third, and sixth grades. I excel at teaching reading and mathematics to children. I have a proven track record of increasing the reading and mathematics levels of my students. In my high-poverty, Title 1 charter school, 100% of my students were assessed as proficient in reading and 79% as proficient in mathematics. My ultimate goal is to develop a love of learning in your child so they become intrinsically motivated, lifelong learners. I will assess your child's individual strengths and weaknesses in the first session as well as their attitude about school and learning before developing a personalized action plan that will enrich your child's strengths, further their areas of growth, and motivate them to enjoy learning.
I also have several years' experience as a PSAT/SAT tutor at one of the big companies. I have taken my time there and combined it with my own highly successful experiences at preparing for and succeeding at standardized tests. (The most recent standardized examinations I took were for teaching and I received a perfect score for both elementary and middle level English language arts). I am well-versed in test preparation and will help your child feel academically and emotionally prepared for the testing process. Additionally, I can assist your child in writing and revising their admissions essay. I personally have been accepted to Columbia, University of Pennsylvania, and New York University among other schools so you can rest assured knowing someone with true-life experience in getting into the tough colleges is supporting your child.
I have successfully tutored multiple adults who had previously failed the Praxis. 100% passed the test after working with me.
I am willing to meet in public places such as libraries or coffee shops to tutor your child. If you would like to eventually have me tutor your child at your home, please be prepared to give me three personal references and contact information for these persons.

My 11 year old loves Laura - she makes math fun and engaging. Very positive yet will make sure he understands what is being taught. Great!
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.
I am certified in Elementary K-6 in the State of Pennsylvania. I have taught as a full-time lead teacher in both first and third grade in a charter school in Philadelphia. I received my Master's of Science in Education in Elementary Education from the Graduate School of Education at University of Pennsylvania.
I implement a phonics-heavy curriculum (Harcourt Journeys) on a daily basis as a first grade teacher. I do daily phonics work with my students. My implementation of the phonics curriculum has been very successful and currently 100% of my students at a high-poverty, Title I charter school in Philadelphia have tested proficient in reading.
I scored a perfect 200 on both my Elementary Education Praxis as well as my English Language Arts (7-12) Praxis. I scored a 199 on my English Language Arts Middle Level Praxis (grades 7-9). I have successfully tutored two adults who previously failed the Praxis. One had failed twice before, the other failed once before. Both passed after working with me (one with only two weeks of preparation, the other with several weeks).
