About Laura

Hi! My name is Laura. I'm currently an English Major in my junior year at Swarthmore College, one of the nation's leading Liberal Arts colleges.

I have been tutoring with WyzAnt for over a year now, helping students from middle school to undergrad with essays and standardized testing, and have also helped younger children with build reading and writing skills. Whether you need help filling out college applications, prepping for a big test, or just need someone to look over or help you work through your essay, I'm here to help!

I received high scores on both the ACT and SAT and was recognized as both a National Merit Scholar and an AP Scholar by College Board in my senior year of High School. 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.

Reading, writing, and standardized tests have always been my forte, and I'm excited to share my knowledge in these areas with other students. In addition to in-person lessons in the greater Philadelphia area, I am also available for online lessons with more flexible hours.

Feel free to send me a message if you're interested in meeting, I look forward to getting in touch with 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.

Proofreading

Writing has always been a passion of mine, something that I have studied both formally and independently since the age of 12. Helping students walk through essays, pinpointing grammatical errors, bolstering structure and watching ideas translate from conversations with a student into elegant written word is easily my favorite part of tutoring. I have helped students from Middle School to Undergrad in all stages of the writing process, and would love to work with you on breathing life into your essays!
