About Laken

I am currently scheduled to receive my Virginia State teaching certification to teach English and literature to middle and high school students. This certification involves years of complex research and experience observing and working in multiple schools. I have worked with teaching English in both India and Brazil and I have served as an assistant professor for hundreds of students in around eight classes.

One of my favorite parts of teaching is encouraging students to set and meet their own goals. All people want to learn but sometimes require some assistance reaching their potential. My role is to help keep students motivated and help them recognize their own talents within the field of English, utilizing those talents to build important academic and life skills (such as critical thinking, writing essays and reading competency, and analysis).

I am excited to meet you.

I have a wealth of experience in publishing my own creative writing and research pieces in collegiate journals and websites all around the world. My study advice has been featured in Teen Vogue and published in an anthology. Furthermore, I am knowledgeable in teaching English in three countries: India, Brazil, and the United States.

Thank you for looking over my profile. Learning is a journey and I hope that we can start that adventure together!

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.

Bible Studies

I have worked as a Supplemental Instructor (assistant professor) for three years in the subjects of collegiate New Testament and Old Testament survey courses. I have worked with two different professors in our department, up to eight classes of students (equaling a couple of hundred pupils), and have received positive reviews regarding my knowledge of the course material and my professionalism with students.
