I'm Laurel! I went to the University of Southern California for my bachelors in acting and theater. . However, I am currently pursuing my second bachelors in psychology at Hunter college.
I tutor on the side because tutoring/teaching is something I'm quite gifted and passionate about. I have successfully tutored many subjects including Algebra 1 and 2, Elementary Math, Math Concepts,ReadingComprehension, Writing, Vocabulary, Grammar, Proofreading/editing, Chemistry, Beginners French, Study skills, and Test-taking skills.
I have been tutoring younger students since I was in the tenth grade. Since then I have tutored a variety of ages and subjects, for a total of about seven years. I definitely have a complete understanding of every single subject I tutor.
I will start by learning about you and evaluating your individual learning style. From there I will create a personalized, structured lesson plan, and we will work together to meet your academic goals. I tend to find most students need help with the fundamentals, so I always look to evaluate and solidify those. After that, we implement the individualized plan to help the student understand the material. I am a very patient and enthusiastic tutor, and I have worked with a range of students from those with learning disabilities to Honors and AP students. I absolutely love a challenge and will put not only my mind but my heart into your success!
I truly hope that you consider me for tutoring - I will do the absolute best job I can to help you succeed in your academic difficulties. One of my greatest jobs is when I see a struggling student finally grasp a concept we've been working on together! I hope to hear from you!
