Lauren Altman

Lauren is currently a full-time teacher for Pittsburgh Public Schools and has been for the past 9 years. She enjoys tutoring because working with student’s one-on-one allows her to pace and focus sessions specifically to meet the needs and individual learning style of each student. Lauren frequently employs progress monitoring and benchmark assessments to demonstrate student growth.

Lauren believes that students often need more time to focus on skills and concepts presented in the classroom in order to meet the demands of core standards. She focuses on re-teaching in order to solidify a foundation for all students, and frontloading upcoming concepts to give students a preview of what’s to come.

*Lauren possesses all current Pennsylvania clearances.
