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.

My experience includes 20 years in general and special education, and Speech Therapy. **Note: Accepting only elementary students at this time.** 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. Please note: I do not do proofreading for publications, such as APA proofreading. *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.

Ms. Laurie is an amazing tutor. She takes her time with my niece and now my nephew. She makes sure to send updates and she really cares about the kids and their education.
