About Laura

I have been an educator for more than 25 years. I have earned a BA in Literature from Wheaton College and a Masters of Education from The University of Southern California. I spent 10 years working in college admissions and then an additional 15 running my own large preschool with 50 teachers and 250 children. I love tutoring students, and focus primarily on students who are struggling with writing skills including research preparation, grammar, syntax and flow, paper outlines, the writing process and creating papers that flow with assigned rubrics.

I also have scored 96% on the MAT (Miller Aptitude Test) within the last year and excel at standardized test tutoring in the areas of reading and writing. Even the most difficult assignment can be accomplished with teamwork! I also scored 96% on the LSAT and enjoy working with students on strategic approaches to standardized tests that will help them be more successful.

I am a Mom of three and have been happily married for 25 years. I live in a smoke free home. I am an outstanding English tutor because I am patient and really enjoy the writing process. I am intensely curious and enjoy helping students work from an assigned task to a complete paper. I will help students focus on common grammatical errors, sentence flow and adherence to an assigned rubric. There are many "tricks of the trade" that students can quickly grasp when working one on with with me that will make them much more successful writers.

I am technologically savvy and am happy to tutor through Wyzant, Skype or Google Hangouts. I live in Folly Beach, and am happy to travel to James Island, Johns Island or the Charleston peninsula for tutoring. I love animals an am happy to meet in various public libraries or quiet public locations for tutoring. I will consider in home tutoring on a case by case basis.
