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