    Lauren has worked with my 13-year-old daughter (now 14) for over a year through school and during the summers. She has been great! She is very patient and helpful, working through everything calmly including just getting onto zoom, counseling my daughter to be on time and prepared, reviewing assignments with her. She has a great rapport with kids, connects with them, and therefore builds trust and gets results.

    Lauren (our Hammond Bell tutor) is an energetic, passionate, caring and positive tutor that has become a saving grace for our 10-year-old daughter who has dyslexia and executive function issues. Her approach involves really getting to know each child then molding the programs to their unique personalities/needs. For my daughter, Hammond Bell has brought the fun back into learning and built my daughters confidence. And she also has worked with my daughters school so that we can do the tutoring at school, leaving her after-school hours available for rest and play. My daughter LOVES working with Lauren--even on Zoom, something she never enjoyed before. Each week, I get a very detailed description of what Noel has done and is learning. I can tell that Lauren really spends time on these updates and she always makes herself available to me to answer any questions. My daughter has been consistently 2 years or so behind academically, but with Lauren, I really feel that shifting. We had tried many programs before Hammond Bells, but they all required heavy parent involvement (something that did not work for our family) and homework. I would recommend Hammond Bell highly to any parent who is frustrated by not seeing results and being told they need to do more at home to reinforce learning. Lauren is a real gift to our entire family.

    Lauren is an amazing tutor! My daughter has been working with her on reading and spelling for 3 months and there was immediate improvement that continues to get better. My daughter actually enjoys the tutoring sessions which says a lot in itself. Lauren is wonderfully positive and full energy during each session and makes the tutoring fun. I highly recommend her.

    This review is for Tutor Lauren, from the initial consultation about my daughter receiving specialize tutoring due to her learning disability of dyslexia, I felt she offer a spirit of confidence, professionalism and a skill level that my adult daughter would be in good hands. My daughter was preparing to take a very competitive exam for a career training program (apprenticeship). Lauren was able to take her from elementary math to a high school level in a matter of months. Lauren’s support of math and other technical subjects were covered in a mutual time schedule with no missed appointments and she also offered flexibility in case of schedule changes if needed. She is very patient and gives reassurance that boost my daughters confidence for taking this exam. It has been a pleasure for my daughter to work with Lauren, that such, she will gladly come back for her tutoring services in the future with apprenticeship homework. We highly recommend her personally as an eager, easy going and skilled tutor and sweet person. I give her a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 star rating. Thank you Ms. Lauren for all your help with our unique situation. Sincerely, Karen J.

    Frequently asked questions

    When meeting with a new student we conduct initial assessments to collect baseline data. This allows us to determine strengths as well as areas that need to be addressed. An individualized tutoring plan is created and the student is matched with a qualified tutor. Weekly data is collected to ensure that appropriate progress is made.

    Lauren, the founder of Hammond Bell Educational Services, LLC, has a Master's Degree in Special Education with an emphasis on Specific Learning Disabilities.

    Hammond Bell Educational Services, LLC operates on a tuition-based payment model that is due on the 1st of every month. Families are charged the same amount each month regardless of how many lessons are in that month. We plan for a total of 46 weeks (holidays, tutor vacation, and student vacation are worked into this model) and split into 12 equal payments. This keeps our pricing simple and consistent. 

    Sessions are 50 minutes long and are priced as a comprehensive package. This includes the following:

    -An Initial assessment and written evaluation

    -Reassessment every three months to ensure adequate progress

    -Detailed weekly lesson notes

    -Written input for IEP/ 504 meetings

    -Individual student licences to powerful intervention programs that target individualized reading/ math levels.

    "It is my passion and I have been helping students reach their academic goals ever since!"- Lauren

    We work with students in grades 2 through adulthood. The programs that we use are specific to students who have difficulties in reading and spelling, as well as math and executive functioning difficulties. We have experience working with students with a range of challenges and disabilities and have a toolbox of strategies and resources to successfully address the needs of all students.

    We recently participated in a webinar to show other educators effective tools for teaching online. We showed them how to find and incorporate relevant games to reinforce academic content, how to collect data to ensure progress, and how to make tutoring online engaging and fun. 

    It is highly recommended that you work with someone who plans to conduct an initial assessment to determine areas where there may be foundational gaps and areas of need to be addressed. It is equally important that data is regularly collected and shared with you and that communication is open and consistent.

    Does this teacher have experience working with my age group? How will she/he make sure that I am continuing to learn and grow? What goals will this teacher set for me? Does this teacher have experience targeting students with needs similar to my own?
