About Lauren P.

In addition to 10+ years childcare experience, I have my Master's Degree in Education (with a concentration in students with learning disabilities), and am a certified NYC Special Education teacher, teaching English, History and Art over the past 4 years. I have a wide array of materials for SAT, English & Global Regents prep. I also have decoding and comprehension materials to systematically improve and track reading growth for any age level. I played concert snare drums and the drum set for five years and acted as a private tutor for the snare drum and drum set for three years.

To master 6th - 12th grade common-core reading and writing skills, contact TakeLessons.
