With State testing underway it is important now more than ever to help children do their best in school. Extra tutoring may be just what your child needs to help him/her gain that extra step towards higher success.
Throughout the school year (and now accepting applications for the summer) I am able to tutor any child in any subject matter. My name is Laura Van Loenen. I have worked as an Elementary teacher in a local school district for 5 1/2 years. I have experience working in multiple grades: 1st, 4th, and 5th, but also have my certification in elementary education grades K-9. I have recently earned my Masters in Educational Technology. I have been trained in an ELL (English Language Learners) program through K-State. I have a concentration in English literature as well as Psychology. In addition to all of this, I have been trained by The Kansas Reading Academy in the 5 essential components of reading.
Tutoring sessions are 1 hour in length. We meet at the Johnson County Library at 9875 West 87th Street, Overland Park, in a confined quiet room, an ideal work environment for concentration and focus. If you wish to sign up for more than one hour at a time that may be arranged. The cost for my professional services is $45/hour (or $75/hour for two students at a time). Tutoring is available every day of the week to best meet your scheduling needs. The materials used for tutoring will be the student's current curriculum with additional educational resources for extra support. By team-building with your child's teacher, a plan to focus on the key areas he/she needs extra support with will be created.
You may enroll in tutoring sessions by contacting me by either the e-mail address or telephone # associated with this posting. If you have any questions you may contact me either of these ways as well.
Your child's education plays a large role in the type of person he/she will become. Invest in your child's future by giving them what they need now for a better tomorrow.
I look forward to hearing from you,
Laura Van Loenen
***IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to budget cuts by the Kansas Board of Education, most local school districts will no longer be offering summer school. Therefore, tutoring slots are expected to be filled up fast. I urge you to sign up as early as possible.***
