Private Reading Teacher

My teaching certificate includes an endorsement in teaching reading K-12. 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 words, reading becomes an unreachable ordeal. 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.

About Lori

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

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!

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!

Lori is not only a great teacher, but a dear friend and mentor. She has tons of experience teaching students of different ages (from little kids to adults), with various social and cultural backgrounds, and all over the world (North America, Asia, and Africa)! Her teaching is very because she teaches to not only impart knowledge/skills, but also pass on a good spirit.

I tutor grade school kids - high school and increase their interest in the subject, be it reading, writing or math. Keeping the student interested in what they are learning and curious to learn more propels them toward higher learning in the future.

Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

Shelley is fantastic. She made me feel at ease right away, even though I have no prior singing experience and I was incredibly nervous. As early as my second lesson, I could already hear a difference in my voice when I listened back to the recording of our session! She really knows what she's doing and it shows. I highly recommend Shelley. In addition to being a great music teacher - which she is - she's also so pleasant to work with! She's fast to respond, very accommodating with her schedule, friendly and easygoing, and professional. I started out thinking I'd just take a few weeks' worth of lessons to get out of my comfort zone. Over a year later, I'm still here, and looking forward to every week.

Books, short stories, plays will be the focus. Writing about the materials read and testing retention will be only a slightly secondary focus. Assignments will be based on the student's present level of advancement and tailored to that level.

"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."
