About Laura

I am primarily a K-5th grade reading/writing tutor, especially for ESOL students. I have been a teacher assistant in a public school in Prince William County for the past 6 years. I was previously an ESOL assistant for two years. Overall, I have worked in the public school setting for 11 years. My English writing/proofreading, reading, and speaking skills are excellent. I love working with students one-on-one or in small groups. I am very calm and patient and will help you based on your individual learning style. I also speak some Spanish.

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)

My qualifications and experience to tutor elementary students (in addition to having a BA degree), includes 3 years as a substitute in K-5th grade, 2 years teaching ESL students, 3 years as a Kindergarten Instructional Assistant, and 1 year tutoring students with Wyzant.


I can help with speaking, reading, and writing English. I am especially proficient at helping with writing.


I have experience helping students in K-3 grade in Reading, including ESL students. I like to make my tutoring sessions focused, but still fun enough to keep kids interested in learning.
