I have a passion for helping people reach their educational and professional goals. I have worked in education for more than 20 years. I was the Project Director for a large tutoring program that focused on increasing students' academic achievement.
I see myself as a student mentor as well as a tutor. I am qualified to teach all subjects in elementary and specialize in the following areas for high school and college students: study skills, writing research reports, scientific writing, statistics for social scientists, biology, psychology, SAT Reading, ESL/ESOL Algebra I and Algebra II. Also, I provide assessments in learning styles and multiple intelligences, which gives parents, teachers, and students insight into students' preferred method/methods to learn.
For Business ESL students, I have a solid understanding of business and prepared lessons to help you further develop you English language skills. I can meet you at or near your office in the morning or at lunch time for your lesson.
I have a diverse educational and professional background. I possess a doctorate degree in educational psychology, a master's degree in counseling, and a bachelor's in psychology with a minor in biology. I have utilized my writing and research skills in disciplines as diverse as education, public health, psychology, emergency medicine, marketing, and communications. I have published research papers in education, psychology, health care, and medical publications. I have extensively used both the American Psychological and American Medical Association styles. As part of my graduate studies, I successfully wrote a doctoral dissertation, doctoral research paper, and master's thesis.
In addition to my writing and research skills, I can offer students techniques to become better organized and to study more effectively for any subject. I find that sometimes students do not complete assignments based on what is specifically required from the teacher, which results in a significantly lower grade. I would be glad to help you become a better student and help you realize your full potential! I have a passion for helping people reach their educational and professional goals.

Please note that I do not conduct in-home tutoring. Most of my tutoring is conducted near the Market Place center in The Woodlands. Thank you.
We just started last Wednesday and we are working on my pronunciation. Ms. Laura is very patient, kind and knowledgeable. I know I will improve and do better with her teaching method.
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.
