"Hi there! My name is Laura and I am an experienced and dedicated educator. After spending four years teaching English as a Second Language in middle school, and an additional five years of teaching writing at the collegiate level, I am now offering educational services independently. I have 5+ years experience with tutoring developing writers at the high school and college level, with an additional 4+ years of experience teaching writing and reading to elementary and middle school students.

My undergraduate degree was in Creative Writing with a minor in Publishing and Editing, and my graduate degree was in Applied Linguistics. I am a Massachusetts certified teacher for grades 5-12, and I have extensive experience teaching multilingual students of every age group. I specialize in social studies, reading, writing, ESL, and home schooling. When I work with learners of any age level, I focus on building strong relationships so that students feel comfortable and seen through their learning process. Learning can be vulnerable and scary, so my priority is to help you feel at ease, supported, and ready to excel!

I've helped dozens of families and students of all ages in achieving their academic goals. I hope I can help you achieve yours, too!

I have five years of after school experience with ages pre-k to 6th grade, where I was focused on homework help, reading writing, educational fun, and age-appropriate social-emotional development. In addition, I helped establish a home-schooling system for a family with three children (pre-k, K, and 1st grade). Through that process, I've taught phonics, reading, and math, to name a few of the subjects we've covered.

I have 5+ years of tutoring experience at the collegiate level, where I was focused on writing development for students from all majors and language backgrounds. Those students ranged from first-year college students to PHD level medical students writing their dissertations and doing research.

In addition, I spent four years as an ESL teacher at the middl" less...
