I love watching children learn. There is something called the ‘Lightbulb Moment'. It is that moment where everything seems to just click, and they understand! From teaching 3- and 4-years olds to begin to read to then watch them progress throughout their academic life is a priceless experience.

    Thank you, thank you and again thank you! My daughter mastered missing numbers! She just couldn’t get it and then I found Laura. Yes! Looking forward to our next session as we begin learning times tables.

  • Mark Crest

    Times tables! Ah what a nightmare. My 10 year old son just couldn’t memorize them. He sat with Maura for 45 min once a week for 2 months and knows them all. She would assign him homework, it was all themed around race cars. He looked forward to her homework. He is now doing division with her once a week. Thank you! I can’t recommend her enough!

  • Emma Prang

    Laura helped my daughter learn to blend. She’s 5 and was really struggling. She took a 6 week class, twice a week, plus homework with Laura. She is now able to read and blend her words more accurately. Laura spent a good 30 minutes getting to know her and created material around her likes!

  • Mark Fritz

    Once a week Spanish lessons with Laura are fun, engaging and interactive. My son is learning so much, he actually enjoys the homework she sets.

Primarily children aged 4 - 11. 

I have also worked with older children who have IEP in place. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

In the wake of the pandemic, many people have been forced to become teachers. This for me gave me a chance to homeschool and teach in a sliently more freeing way. 

I am a bubbly person and believe children should be encouraged and praised for their learning not solely driven by targets and paperwork. 

I have enjoyed being at home and teaching more and more remotely. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure you have a meet and greet session first. You want to make sure that that whomever you hire is a good fit for either yourself or your child and in some cases both!


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Write out exactly what you want from the sessions. 

What are your long term goals?

How often do you want the lessons?

What days and times?

Is there a specific area you want to learn more about?

Is there a specific area you are struggling to understand?
