Teaching since:

Born and raised in Michigan, I developed a passion for helping others and a need for adventure. From working as a social worker to my treks up and down the world's highest mountains, I have spent much of my life enriching the lives of others while expanding my own horizons. In 2012, after spending many years living abroad in South Korea, I moved to California to begin a new adventure.

My teaching experience is just as extensive and creative. I started tutoring at after school programs when I was in high school, continuing my passion for school aged children through my years in college. After graduating, I took a leap and started my ESL experience in Korea, working with ages 3-50. Over the next 5 years, I switched countries and students many times, but my passion for teaching only continued to grow. Since coming back to my homeland, I have worked for several educational exchange programs, and continued one on one tutoring.

Lauren is very friendly and knowledgeable. She is great with my child. My daughters grade went up 1 whole grade after Lauren started helping. We love her attitude and approach to math!
