About Lauren

I am a certified teacher with 9 years of teaching experience. Five of those years were spent teaching 6th grade math. Previously, I taught 1st grade (all subjects) for one year and 6th grade (all subjects) for two years. Currently, I am teaching technology to grades PK-8.

I have been tutoring privately for 6 years in multiple subject areas, mainly math. I have taught all subjects to elementary students and have tutored: elementary math, pre-algebra, Algebra 1, Geography, Science (earth and life science), and literature.


I love to teach and I really enjoy working with students individually to watch them grow as learners. I use a wide variety of teaching methods when tutoring and will not only help your child with certain subject areas, but I can also help with study skills, organization, and note-taking techniques. Tutoring isn't just about completing homework or studying for an upcoming test, it's also meant to build a strong foundation for a future independent learner. I'd love to work with you and your child and help him or her succeed in academics, raise self-confidence, and foster a love of learning that will continue throughout their academic career.

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.

Algebra 1

I have tutored multiple students in Algebra 1 for 5 years. For all of them, I witnessed a dramatic increase in their confidence levels. For most of them, their grades also improved greatly.

Most importantly, each student was able to express comprehension of material to me clearly in both written and verbal form.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught for 8 years in elementary schools. I spent 2 years teaching a self-contained 6th grade class (all subjects), 1 year teaching all subjects in 1st grade, and 5 years teaching 6th grade Math. I have also been a private tutor for many students ranging in age from 5th-8th grade.

Elementary Math

I have taught both 1st grade and 6th grade and am certified K-6. For 5 years, I taught 6th grade Math in a departmentalized middle school. Additionally, I was a private tutor for many students in pre-algebra, algebra, and 5th/6th grade math.

I began and coached a math club in my previous school. We met weekly after school and then went to local competitions twice a year.

I have a love of numbers and math and have discovered many ways of teaching varying topics to all learners.

Prealgebra

I tutored many students in prealgebra for 5 years. I previously taught 6th grade prerequisites for prealgebra.

Study Skills

I have taught for 8 years in elementary schools. I spent 2 years teaching a self-contained 6th grade class (all subjects), 1 year teaching all subjects in 1st grade, and 5 years teaching 6th grade Math. I have also been a private tutor for many students ranging in age from 5th-8th grade. I have been exposed to and have taught many studying techniques which also include time management and organization.
