"Lauren (our Hammond Bell tutor) is an energetic, passionate, caring and positive tutor that has become a saving grace for our 10-year-old daughter who has dyslexia and executive function issues. Her approach involves really getting to know each child then molding the programs to their unique personalities/needs. For my daughter, Hammond Bell has brought the fun back into learning and built my daughter's confidence. And she also has worked with my daughter's school so that we can do the tutoring at school, leaving her after-school hours available for rest and play. My daughter LOVES working with Lauren--even on Zoom, something she never enjoyed before... Read more

"Lauren is an amazing tutor! My daughter has been working with her on reading and spelling for 3 months and there was immediate improvement that continues to get better. My daughter actually enjoys the tutoring sessions which says a lot in itself. Lauren is wonderfully positive and full energy during each session and makes the tutoring fun. I highly recommend her."

Hammond Bell has worked with my 13-year-old daughter (now 14) for over a year through school and during the summers. She has been great! She is very patient and helpful, working through everything calmly including just getting onto zoom, counseling my daughter to be on time and prepared, reviewing assignments with her. She has a great rapport with kids, connects with them, and therefore builds trust and gets results.
