Background & Approach

Lauren Porter is passionate about learning!  She became a teacher for Seattle Public Schools in 2006 and has been helping kids become successful readers, writers, mathematicians and scientists ever since.  Lauren experiences huge achievements in the classroom.  Her students often make gains of 2 years or more as measured by district and state assessments!  And more importantly, she fosters a love of learning and an internal sense of confidence that keeps kids going long after her time with them is done.  She believes strongly in the power of education and is committed to making it work for each and every child.

Becoming a mom has changed the focus of Lauren’s life and career.  In order to spend more time with her children, she is now offering her talents as a private tutor for Puget Sound families.  Lauren works one-on-one with students to determine their own unique strengths and challenges.  Her data-driven approach is strategic and effective.  Lauren consults with parents and teachers to ensure she is providing the best service possible.  You can expect your child to learn, grow, and shine as a result of working with Lauren!

Lauren is a Highly Qualified Teacher with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Language and Literature from the University of Puget Sound and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Antioch University Seattle.  References are available upon request.
