About Laurie

My love for learning and working with our youth never ends.
I have taught in the Highland Park Independent School District and the Dallas Independent School District.

I have 30 years teaching and tutoring experience of Public, Private, & Homeschool students,
I instill joyful & healthy attitudes toward mastering skills & testing. Having taught through the 1980's through 2016, I fully understand how to navigate through the STAARS & ISEE tests in the State of Texas.

Strong foundations for these tests help students later for advanced placement into College. Being a Mom of both a Public School & Private School (Hockaday) graduates, I "Get the Stress" that families are experiencing in 21st century.

I am a lifetime certified Teacher 1-8, ALL Subjects, in the State of Texas.
I specialize in tutoring Math & Reading, grades 1-8,
and working with children with Learning Differences.

My Math topics cover all math to pre-algebra, and I understand the building blocks for Math & Reading sequentially from grades 1-8.
My techniques can quickly help remedy skills that have been missed in a fun & rewarding way.
My goals for each session are customized to each parent & student need. They range from tackling Self Confidences, Homework Help, Test Prep,and simply helping students to be "Happy Kids & Learners"!
I challenge my students to do more without overwhelming them.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping in any way I can.

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.

Common Core
