As a teacher and a tutor, it is my philosophy that EVERY student has the capability to be successful in school. Your child is, of course, an individual and they need individualized attention when it comes to learning or brushing up on skills for school. Through my experience I have found that applying different instructional techniques depending on a student's needs and unending patience can provide great improvements in both skills and student confidence. By providing this service for your child, they will receive tutoring sessions that are tailored to their learning needs to channel their strengths to improve other necessary skills.
My qualifications include:
Masters in Education from Johns Hopkins University
Secondary Science Teacher Certification (3 years teaching experience)
Pennsylvania Tutoring Certification (10 years tutoring experience)
Experience working with and understanding the learning needs of students grades 1 to 12
I am especially passionate about tutoring because it allows me to make a huge impact on a student's learning and really understand their needs and strengths as a learner. If you have further questions, do not hesitate to ask!
"Laura is fantastic! She helped give our son self esteem in math...which improved his grades dramatically! We couldnt be happier! "
- Jennifer R., Parent in BRIDGEVILLE PA
"Laura has done a wonderful job tutoring our son. She primarily worked with him on his 9th grade algebra. Where once he was doing everything he could to avoid doing his work he now is tackling it without any hesitation. What's more this seems to be carrying over to his other subjects. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Laura to future pupils and their parents."
