Lauren exceeded my expectations. She always went above and beyond for me and my sister. She helped me become a stronger student in writing and math. There is not one bad thing I could say about her. She was also very professional, very understanding, the work quality was outstandingly amazing, and she would always make time for us even when her schedule was full. I wouldn’t be who I am today without her. I would HIGHLY recommend Lauren !!

Lauren worked with my son to improve his essay writing skills. She was always positive and encouraging. She helped him understand how he could use different choice of words to express the same idea. I see an improvement in his writing skills after he worked with Lauren. I will definitely recommend her. Thank you Lauren!

She did an amazing high quality job of editing my manuscript, more than 40 pages over just few days. Not being an expert in my technical business related field, she managed to make both major and minor changes to improve the flow, clarity, gramma, punctuation, etc., and she was very consistent with respect to the content and original meaning. I would highly recommend her for her professionalism, punctuality, very high standards in editing, being very responsible,...I’m very demanding but she significantly exceeded my expectations!

I took the ACT before tutoring with Lauren and had little to no confidence in myself and my score reflected that. However, once I began tutoring with Lauren, my confidence in the material and general understanding of the test itself gradually improved. I have no one but her to thank for my improvements in test taking, and I highly suggest choosing Lauren as a tutor as she has helped completely change the way I approach a test, and perform better when it comes to test-taking. My younger sister will be tutoring with Lauren for the ACT, and I have 100% confidence that Lauren will be able to help my sister the way she was able to help me.
