Online Reading Teacher

I'm a certified reading teacher. I love books, I love imagination, I love teaching people to "see" their stories, but I also love helping them grow in their ability to read and understand what they've read. When a person struggles with knowing how to pronounce or understand the words, reading becomes too much trouble. This is where I come in. I have strong skills in teaching pronunciation, phonics, letter-sound strengths. I'm very patient and willing to help students every step of the way. Just call on me.

I love teaching! I have a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Education and have been teaching ESL online to business professionals around the world; particularly in the high-tech field. I have taught English internationally in China, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kurdistan and Mozambique for more than

Lori, one of the best teacher I have seen. As a not native English speaker I was thinking I am doing a good job in my English communication, but then started taking classes from Lori and I improved a lot in my English communication. She is one of the teacher who puts all her energy to make sure what ever you are learning you never forgot in life.
Without any second thought you can go ahead and start taking class from her.
She is doing really amazing job in this profession.
I am very thankful for her teaching and she is very good human being .
Sena
As a working professional in the airline industry, my role has been revolved around customer support & service for many years as a flight attendant and a gate agent. A friend of mine referred me to Lori given that he has a positive experience in improving his communication skills in English. Because I interacted daily with customers with different language backgrounds, I as non-native English speaker wanted to better communicate with them in a sophisticated way. Lori captured every single incorrectness from me - she is not picky but detail-oriented - and helped me speak more naturally but precisely. Although Lori and I only e-met online, she used a variety of tools to maximize her teaching effectiveness for our class by using Google docs, Skype, useful resources online, etc. Lori was also flexible to accommodate my availability. She is a thoughtful person who uplifts and challenges me, which I really appreciate! You would be fortunate to have her as your English teacher!
Owen Lee
It was very fortunate to meet with Lori. I was looking for someone who can help me hone my professional communication skills in English at workplace in both speaking and writing. During class, I experienced many WoW moments because she didn't simply spend our class to find incorrect grammar and misspellings. Instead, Lori fundamentally changed my thought process in my English writing from a cultural perspective so that I don't just mechanically emulate my mother tongue into English. Instead, I was always encouraged to put myself on the American audience shoes in regards to the best optimal story-telling context. Also, she has a very good understanding of difficulties for international folks in English pronunciation. This is one of the beauties you would enjoy when you have Lori as your coach. She just doesn't ask you to mimic her pronunciation. Her pronunciation class is designed to help you understand how to make sounds properly and to reduce accents. Last but not least, Lori is a wonderful person to work with. She is humble, tactful, and generous of spirit. I highly recommend you to start one class to get a sense of what I just said. Meeting her is Believing!

Learning to read or learning lessons in reading is unique with me by the way I present my materials and the lessons I use to help students learn to read and lessons in reading. I will use manipulative materials that will be fun and engaging which will allow the students to learn in a more positive way. Students won't even know they are learning, but think they are having fun learning the lessons.

"Maurice is an outstanding educator, an educator that makes students feel capable and confident in accomplishing whatever academic goals they may have or struggle with. He puts all his focus on what students first need to learn in order to get to their goal. He's one of the most understanding educators I've had the pleasure of working with. His patience, regardless of the students difficulty on grasping the academic concept is astonishing. If a student isn't understanding one learning style, he'll try a different way until the student does."
