Introduction: Conscientious, resourceful Master Teacher with extensive knowledge in educational strategies to include all subject areas, highlighting Reading, Writing, Comprehension and Language. I am a highly effective communicator, facilitating positive lessons and establishing excellent rapport. I was awarded Teacher of the Year by my school district, and create uniquely tailored lessons to promote accelerated student growth. My experience includes 20 years in general and special education, and Speech Therapy. My clients consist of both children and adults. Observing my students excel and attain their goals is my greatest satisfaction, along with the confidence and self-esteem that is gained in our time working together. Teaching is my passion, as is demonstrated by my many former students who are now successful in their lives, and with whom I still communicate with. Providing students with Outcome Based Education, along with the tools to succeed and beyond is my goal. *Payment can include cash, check or Zelle! *Note: Only afternoon and evening lessons. Thank You!

Hire her NOW! She is literally PERFECT! I mean for what she charges? And you’re getting two-in-one - teacher and speech pathologist. She could easily be getting 2-3x her rate for the value she brings to the table. Get this - not only did she purchase and supply the books she uses to teach my son to read, but she also helps him with the speech issues he has - for no additional fee! The other day she sent him a card letting him know he was her star student (way to boost a little guy’s confidence and improve performance) and she is the most patient, kind yet firm instructor EVER with no problems effectively teaching my 6 year old online. She also sends me a super detailed report of everything they worked on and progress made after each session. I mean what more could you ask for? You hardly find people with this level of care, diligence and work ethic anymore. And then at that price?! I am SO glad I found her! You better snatch her up fast before she comes to her senses and realizes she should triple her rate😃.

I found Laurie giving 110% in her preparation for the needs of each students. She would evaluate each child to discover their specific needs and designed their program to meet those needs. Her connection with her students was exceptional, She made it her business to meet their personal needs no matter where they fell, academically, socially, or physically. I found Laurie to be a teacher who has expertise in so many areas. She has high level skills in language development, in writing and research skills and of course basic fundamental skills just to name a few. I found her ability to communicate with her students at level we all strive to be. She is an amazing teacher. One we all strive to be.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    As a Certified A Teacher and Tutor, with 20 years in the classroom and 10 years as a Tutor, I prepare for each individual student, providing many avenues of learning, and follow up with a detailed report. I also offer a free initial consultation wherein I evaluate you (or your student) extensively. At that time I set up a Detailed Program Plan to provide excellence in learning to achieve your goals. Should you refer someone to me who signs up for tutoring, I will give you one free lesson. Also, if you have a 2nd child, I offer $5.00 off the 2nd child. Thank you!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Kindly send a message to me through Thumbtack, and I will respond as soon as possible! We can discuss what your educational goals are, and set up a time for a free evaluation. I will evaluate you (or your student's) skills, and set up a learning plan, and discuss it with you. We then set up a regular day and time to meet.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    As a Certified A teacher, I have 20 years of classroom experience with Mesa Public Schools. I've also been awarded Teacher of the Year, and served as a Reading Specialist for 7 years. While I have taught all subjects, my focus is on Reading, Writing, Comprehension and Language. In addition to learning, it is of the utmost importance that my students gain a strong sense of self esteem as they accomplish their goals. I have been tutoring for 10 years, and enjoy what I do tremendously!
