About Laura

With 17 years experience as a college English teacher, I can help students in junior or senior high school (or, of course, college) with their reading and writing skills. Need to improve your grades? Struggling to write a paper? Working on making a great college essay for applying to your favorite school? Sometimes even one meeting with a tutor is enough to make a real difference. If you need someone to help in your student's life, contact me!

I'm a friendly, supportive, patient tutor with plenty of strategies for success. I've worked with students from all ability levels -- from upper level honors students who love English and Language Arts classes to those who are most frustrated and impatient with anything to do with books and essays.

We can meet at your local library for tutoring. I look forward to hearing from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I have 17 years experience teaching college English.

Literature

I have taught literature in both high school and college, including courses in world literature, poetry, American and British literature, women's lit, and many others.

Reading

An important part of learning is knowing how to read for key ideas and themes. I have 17 years of experience teaching college students how to read essays, works of literature, and even their textbooks more effectively.
