About LAURA

My name is Laura, and I am a Mom of two amazing boys, a fourteen year old son and a five year old son. I am a graduate of South Plains College, with an Associate of Science degree with a major in pre-pharmacy. I am also a graduate of Texas Tech University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development and Family Studies with a minor in Childhood Development. I am a third generation Texas Tech graduate! My grandparents attended Texas Tech and my Dad graduated with a degree from Texas Tech. I am currently working on a Master of Art degree in Marriage & Family Therapy at Northcentral University.

I am an experienced teacher with six years of teaching experience working with children, from infants to adolescents and even college students. I have been a Lead and Assistant Teacher and have taught Art, Foreign Language including French and Spanish, and Pre-Kindergarten. Most of my teaching experience has been with children 3-6 years of age. I have previous tutoring experience with children and adolescents. I have also been a Substitute Teacher in Lubbock ISD.

I have always loved learning! I have always tried to instill a love for learning in my students. If children develop a hunger and desire to learn, they will love education and will continue on this path for knowledge into adulthood!

It is a really great feeling when a student is having difficulty learning something and then the "light bulb" comes on and they finally get it! Some of my most favorite subjects to teach are French, Art, Math and Science. I have taught French and Spanish to children ages 2-6.

If you do not quite love to learn, let me help you put the spark back into learning and make learning fun! Contact me, Laura, so that I can help make learning fun again. I look forward to talking with you soon!

Sincerely,

Laura

Thank you, Kristy, for your kind words! Avery has been a joy to work with. She is so eager and excited and gives 110% of her effort in each and every tutoring session. Avery has made so much progress in such a short amount of time!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 7 years of teaching experience with children from preschool aged, elementary and college students. I have been tutoring a student in 1st and 2nd grade, in Reading, for almost 2 years. I have also taught English, French and Spanish to preschool aged students, ages 2-6 years old. I have experience working in a Montessori school and incorporate some hands-on Montessori teaching methods with my students, in addition to more traditional methods as well. I also have experience teaching Art, Math and Science to Pre-K and Kindergarten students. I have also tutored 2nd grade students in Math.

Phonics

I have 5 years of teaching experience in Pre-K and Kindergarten where I taught children aged 3-5 Phonics, Reading and Writing. I have experience with Reading programs and curriculum. I have experience with Montessori education, so I love incorporating hands-on Montessori materials into the learning process, such as puppets and manipulatives. I also use traditional teaching materials such as flash cards and worksheets. I like to incorporate modern technology such as IPads, the computer, and fun learning songs and videos. I am familiar with North Dallas schools and Lubbock ISD, and I have been a substitute in LISD as well. I will not only TEACHERS your child phonics, but they will LOVE PHONICS and LEARNING!
