Hi! I'm Lara. I have been a teacher for 21 years. I have experience teaching high school, middle school, and elementary school. Most of my career, however, has been spent teaching fifth grade. I have the most experience teaching mathematics, and consider myself to be very strong at it and very helpful to my students. I would love to help you feel better about your learning and will plan exciting activities to do so. Looking forward to working with you.

I feel that I am able to present math lessons in a fun, exciting way through incorporation of technology, mnemonics, and hands-on learning with different math manipulatives. I was chosen to work on the Test Item and Review committee for the grade 5 Virginia SOL test from the Virginia Department of Education. This is because of my experience in teaching elementary mathematics. I have great knowledge in knowing how to break down multistep problems and explain math processes clearly. I also am very experienced with Test prep.

I have a thorough knowledge of elementary science, especially upper elementary. I like to incorporate a lot of visuals into my instruction along with stem activities if they can be integrated into the tutoring topic. I was previously nominated for the Presidential Award of Excellence for Mathematics and Science teaching.

Teaching reading and grammar has always been a strength for me. This area was my concentration in college as English was always my strongest subject. I am able to help with learning how to write papers, building endurance in reading, and strengthening reading and grammar skills.

I am excited to work with you. Let's start building that confidence, so that you feel comfortable with your learning. Please contact me, and let's get started.
