About Lauren

My love of helping others to learn is based on a rigorous foundation of my own. I hold an undergraduate degree in English from the University of Pennsylvania. There I studied and learned from world-renowned authors and professors. I went on to complete graduate work at Cabrini College, where I am currently a candidate for a M.Ed. in elementary education with an initial teaching certification. When I am not tutoring on nights and weekends, I can usually be found in my classroom, working to instill a love of learning in all of my students.

There are few things I am more passionate about in life than helping others to learn. I take great satisfaction in working with my students to help them achieve their goals. With over seven years of experience tutoring students, I can say that I have much experience in meeting the needs of children of all ages. I use frequent formative assessments to drive my instruction, modifying and differentiating each session that I teach. I consider each student that I take on for tutoring to be my own special priority, and I spend much time outside of our sessions analyzing and reflecting upon my students' progress and creating materials to help them strengthen their weak areas. My students recognize my enthusiasm and dedication to their success, which in turn motivates them to work their hardest to improve. Over the years, my students have made great gains in both their test preparation scores and their overall academic progress, which I attribute to my unrivaled enthusiasm and knowledge of best practices.

I have seven years of experience tutoring SAT Math. One of the things that I love most about math is that there are an infinite number of ways to think about and approach a problem. Throughout my sessions I present my students with multiple strategies and methods for engaging in SAT math problems, guaranteeing their chance of success.

Reading and writing are my favorite subjects to teach and the ones in which I consider myself to be a true expert. I am able to provide my students with multiple means of understanding a passage and deriving needed information efficiently and effectively. Moreover, I am able to distill very technical grammatical concepts into easy-to-understand rules. My students have experienced remarkable gains in their reading and writing as a result of their time with me.

I would love to provide you with more information about my tutoring services. Please feel free to email me with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

College Counseling

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Pennsylvania and I am currently pursuing my M.Ed. at Cabrini College.

One of my favorite ways to help my students is to assist my high school juniors and seniors in applying to the colleges of their dreams. I have several years experience walking students through all aspects of the college application process, from initial forms to application essay. My degree in English and my previous experience as an editor have prepared me well for assisting students in crafting stellar application essays that truly make them stand out. I have helped countless students get into top colleges over the past few years and I would love to offer my services to your high schooler!

Elementary (K-6th)

Teaching is both an art and a science, requiring not only natural talent but in-depth study as well. Currently, I hold an elementary teaching certification for grades PreK-4. To continue to gain expertise in this area, I am pursuing my M.Ed. from Cabrini College. I then plan on gaining certification as a Reading Specialist.

I have applied the knowledge I have gained from my courses to my teaching in the classroom. Over the past three years, I have worked in the Upper Merion Area School District in various roles, including instructional aide, student teacher, and now substitute teacher. From these varied experiences, I have gained a deep knowledge of elementary standards and curricula. Furthermore, I tutor many elementary students outside of school hours, helping them to eliminate gaps in their knowledge and be successful in their grade level. I love working with this age level and would be thrilled to assist your learner in any way I can!
