About Laura

Hi! My name is Laura. I'm currently a Sophomore at Swarthmore College, where I am studying English. I received high scores on both the ACT and SAT, and was recognized as both a National Merit Scholar and AP Scholar by College Board in my Senior year. I am also a Questbridge Scholar and have received training through this organization as an Essay Coach, a volunteer position in which I provided high school juniors from low-income families with guidance for writing College Admissions Essays.

Though I spend most breaks at home in Cincinnati, Ohio, I am available as a tutor in the greater Philadelphia area throughout the school year. I am also always available for online lessons. Alongside of tutoring with WyzAnt and volunteering as an Essay Coach, I have experience working with young children though ten years of babysitting and experience volunteering as a music tutor for high school aged students.

Reading, writing, and standardized tests have always been my forte, and I'm excited to share my knowledge in these areas with other students.

Feel free to send me a message if you're interested in meeting. Please note that I have discounted rates for online and group tutoring. I look forward to getting in touch with you!

Note: For in-person tutoring, I must ask that each lesson be a minimum of one hour long.
