"My name is Laura H., and I have been teaching in the high school English classroom for fifteen years. I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of South Alabama dual majoring in English and Secondary Education and a Master’s Degree from University of West Alabama. I am currently working on an EdS in Instructional Leadership. I have enjoyed my time in the classroom immensely as getting to help adolescents achieve their dreams, be it writing an excellent paper or making a qualifying score for college entrance or scholarships, is the best part about what I do!

I enjoy working with middle and high school students wanting to learn to read with more fluency and comprehension or write with more ease of analysis. I have taught everything from basic level high school English in all grade levels to writing research, analysis, and college entrance essays to ACT preparation with which I have had numerous students score above a 30 in both English and Reading sections with several scores of 35 or 36. Currently, I am teaching and working with students in high school AP Language and Composition, and last year, I obtained one of the highest percentile scores in my state for AP Exam results. I feel that I am very good at what I do, and my scores support that. I think all children have potential and just need someone to help them discover it! I look forward to working with you on discovering yours.

I have an average score of 28 in English and 26 in Reading on the ACT given to all juniors in my school system. With many advance students, I help them to achieve scores of a 36 or 35 in those two areas thus allowing them to comp out of English courses at some Universities. Additionally, I teach AP Language and Composition and averaged a 73% passing rate last year- almost 35% above the national average. I have multiple degrees up to the graduate level and have taught high school English for 15 years.

I would love to work with you! I know together we can make your academic goals a success. Contact me so we can get start" less...
