Peak Tutoring in Colorado Springs - Helping Students Achieve Peak Academic Performance and Confidence

 

Welcome to Peak Tutoring in Colorado Springs! My name is Lara, and I am a licensed teacher with a Master's degree in teaching. I love working one-on-one with K-12 students in Colorado Springs (live) and anywhere in the world (online). Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to set up a no-risk, introductory tutoring session. 

Why Hire a Tutor?

 

Parents have had me work with their children for many reasons, including:

  • To complete homework and minimize homework battles at home.
  • To improve in an area of weakness. 
  • To keep skills sharp and prevent the scientifically-proven phenomenon of "summer slide" or "brain drain" during breaks.
  • To preview material over the summer in order to lay a foundation and build confidence going into a new school year.
  • To help a homeschooling parent by teaching a particular subject like math. 
  • To help students stay current with schoolwork from another state while living half time in Colorado and being coached in competetive ice skating. 

Why Peak Tutoring?

 

Customized Lessons

I tailor-make lessons to meet individual needs, instead of using a "canned" program like some learning centers. We can use class materials to do homework, or we can focus on a skill that is currently a struggle. I enjoy finding just the right resource or activity that will help get a concept across. It is so rewarding to see the "lightbulb click on" when a student successfully masters a new skill.

 

Flexibility

In addition to flexible lessons, I also have flexible hours and meeting locations.

 

Professionalism & Integrity

Unlike some tutors, I am a professional teacher. I have been background checked and fingerprinted and carry liability insurance. I am punctual, dress professionally, and have warm rapport with kids of all ages. I communicate regularly with parents about what happened during each session and let them know if I think their child is no longer in need of my services, so they don't keep paying unneccessarily.
