Introduction: Pleasure to meet you. My name is Lauren; I am a tutor and editor with over seven years of experience. I hold a bachelor’s degree in creative writing and a master’s degree in social work. **EXCLUSIVELY WORKING ONLINE** TEST PREP I assist students in demystifying the test prep process, teaching a combination of foundational knowledge as well as strategy. I specialize in helping students to raise their scores to qualify for “reach” schools. I am experienced in helping students who may struggle with test-taking anxiety, working to boost their self esteem. Typically, I suggest 8-10 tutoring sessions. I average a 3-5 point increase on the ACT and a 200-250 point increase on the SAT. I personally scored in the 99th percentile on the SAT. I offer a half hour-long trial session to all prospective clients. EDITING I specialize in assisting clients to communicate effectively and eloquently by helping them to find their true voice. I offer both developmental and copyediting services, meeting with clients over Zoom to discuss and clarify feedback after each pass of edits. I have edited over a dozen fiction and nonfiction manuscripts. I have been published in Newcity Chicago and have held positions composing and editing documents used in medical litigation cases. I have worked extensively with clients who speak English as a second language.

I found Lauren by chance and after talking to her and understanding her approach to her tutoring process, I knew she would be a great fit for my daughter. My daughter has not only improved in her SAT prep, but she has also gained confidence in her test taking skills. She continues to improve every time she does her prep testing. I’m encouraged by her improvement thanks to Lauren. If you are looking for a great testing tutor, the. Lauren is it!

Lauren was very easy to work with. She takes her time to make sure she delivers to the best of her knowledge, and most importantly she treats the project very personal to make sure all sides are happy with the product. I would highly recommend her for resume and cover letter writing/editing and rewriting.

My daughter really loved working with Lauren-- my daughter is a bit shy and she warmed up to Lauren immediately. We are going back to her for writing support after getting some SAT support earlier in the year!

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Lauren and the great job she did working on my book. I want to commend for her professional approach when editing my book. The experience of working with her was so enlightening, she brought a personal touch by communicating with me through the zoom app to assure she was capturing my true expectation of the task of editing my story. She was able to bring to life what I could only think and place it on paper and now the world will read it, thank you, Laura for a job well done. Thank you!

I would definitely recommend Lauren to anyone looking for an ACT or SAT tutor. She really took the time to explore each and every problem so I could understand each concept fully. She was very patient with me when I did not understand something. She gave me extra study resources that I used to learn in between sessions. My ACT score improved 8 points in 6 months with Lauren's help and I encourage anyone looking to improve their ACT or SAT score to learn from Lauren.
