I have taught in public, private, and charter schools for over 20 years, and I have been a private tutor for six years now, specializing in Reading and test preparation. I always work to individualize tutoring plans to ensure students receive the maximum benefits using various techniques, such as multimedia sources, technology, and the latest teaching materials. A key element in tutoring is the connection a tutor makes with a student which gives him/her intrinsic motivation to want to impro...

My 10 year old daughter just loves Laura's lesson because she is nice, patient and explains problems very clearly. We are glad that Laura can help us out.

She has our son go through his homework, and then works through some reading, then asks him what he learned. We are seeing his comprehension increase, as well as his abilities to sound out words. We are pleased.

Laura was a big help tutoring my daughter over a few months. Helped her with the material and perhaps the biggest benefit was strategy of taking the SAT. Her scores improved by 160 points. Thanks Laura!

My daughter loves working with Laura because she is very encouraging and makes her feel as if she is very capable of learning to read better.

Ms. Laura is a brilliant educator. She has been tutoring our eight-year-old son for the past year and it has been a great experience. She has helped our son significantly develop his reading and comprehension skills. He began the year below his grade level and he ended the year well above. Ms. Laura has helped pique his interest in reading and now not only does he love to read but he has inspired his younger sister to join in the fun! It's just wonderful. You will not be disappointed in hiring Ms. Laura. She is both caring and extremely experienced; she is warm but also firm. Her techniques should be made standard for all tutors. Again, excellent educator.

She is pretty patient and caring about the needs of my daughter, creates different ways for my daughter to read and interpret the text.

Laura has been tutoring my girls for 8 months, she is a very patient and enthusiastic tutor. We come from Europe and arrived with two girls starting school (7th and 10th graders) with barely a few words of English. We hired Laura for ESL but she proved to be very helpful with my girl's homework. She patiently reviewed lessons in Language Arts, but also in Social studies, Sciences and Civics. We appreciate her versatility as she did not focus only on ESL but often came with resources directly related to the girls' needs. My girls both enjoy the fact that Laura understands what is helpful for them. She also switches from my 12 year old to my 15 year old with no problem and adapts the contents to their level and their age. Both my girls speak good English now and are getting better and better at school. Within a few months, both of them had A and Bs in Language Arts.

Laura is a very patient and caring tutor! Our son enjoyed the sessions with her very much and was always looking forward to her return visits. Best of all, we saw solid improvement in his speech, reading and comprehension. We definitely recommend her!

My son worked with Laura to prepare for the reading section of the SAT. Laura came to the home for a first meeting free of charge and we all sat down to review our goals and her strategy to help my son achieve that goal. She was patient, knowledgeable, and offered multiple strategies that helped him achieve an excellent score on his first attempt of the SAT test. We would highly recommend Laura for any student looking to prepare for the PSAT, SAT, or any standardized test where reading/vocabulary/English subjects are involved. Very pleased.

Laura is a great tutor, she has helped me learn the basics of Portuguese that I will need to know when I arrive in Brazil in 3 weeks! She is very patient and has given me the resources I will need when I arrive in Brazil! Thank you so much!

Virginia S is the ideal tutor, and is a quality teacher. I look forward to my son working with her now and in the future.
- Harry R. from Reidsville, NC
Virginia was a great tutor, she helped work with my friends and me on English, we are all from different countries. She helped us work through tough assignments and gave us confidence to study English. Thanks!
- Enoch C. from Greensboro, NC
I have been tutored by this person for about 3 months. She is the best tutor that I have ever had. She tutors me in social studies and English, and I have an A in both classes. She is very helpful with homework, and also helps me prepare for tests and quizzes. Overall, I would say she is the best tutor, and I recommend her to anybody looking for a good humanities tutor.
