Meet Laura

I have had the opportunity to tutor 2 children, ages 9 and 11, in English/Reading and Mathematics. The two children are Israeli and were living in the U. S. (in Boston) for 1 year. I was thrilled to watch them grow from nearly illiterate in the English language to zipping through not only their homework and school reading, but novels for pleasure such as Harry Potter, within 9 months time. Having private tutoring after school allowed them to continue speaking English amongst one another and at home. It also kept them from becoming discouraged with their school work,... more
I have had the opportunity to tutor 2 children, ages 9 and 11, in English/Reading and Mathematics. The two children are Israeli and were living in the U. S. (in Boston) for 1 year. I was thrilled to watch them grow from nearly illiterate in the English language to zipping through not only their homework and school reading, but novels for pleasure such as Harry Potter, within 9 months time. Having private tutoring after school allowed them to continue speaking English amongst one another and at home. It also kept them from becoming discouraged with their school work, and able to keep up with the other students in class! I hugely enjoyed working with the girls and learning how to harvest their strengths. Not only did we focus on their schoolwork, but we engaged in activities such as arts and crafts, which inspired the older sister (now 13) to attend a school for the arts when she returned home to Israel. They became like a second family to me and I was appreciative to learn as much from them as they learned from me. I am currently a swim instructor at Radnor Community Swim at Radnor High School for children ages 4-11 (employer = Woolery Enterprises). I was a camp counselor for children at the Fox Chase CORA Center, where I started an Art Program within the summer camp. I have taught private flute lessons and I also play the piccolo and alto flute. I would love to offer private lessons to children starting to play! I taught CCD at St. Thomas the Apostle Church for 3 years, 3rd grade class.
