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**
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.
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.
