What is Heads Up Learning?

What do parents say?

I would never have thought that it was possible to learn French online, but somehow Laura makes it happen! My son was a complete beginner when we started lessons four months ago, and I’m truly shocked at how much he can speak (and even read!) in French in such a short time. Much of this, I think, is due to the fact that Laura’s lessons are so fun, my son wants to practice… If you are looking for a tutor and are hesitant about an online format, don’t be – just hire Laura. =)

Laura’s curriculum has evolved throughout the year to follow the interests of the students and their holistic development. She skillfully works to problem solve with the best interest of her students always in mind.

Kind, delightful, effective, and deeply engaged tutor who has helped our child (2nd grade) thrive during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our child’s reading has improved and Laura has been able to help our child keep their love of math going. In addition, our child wanted to learn French, which is one of the main reasons we began working with Laura. Although our child had no background in French, in mere 4 – 5 months, she is singing and reading in French.

Laura is an amazing educator! She is knowledgeable, skilled, sweet, and patient. But beyond that, she has a deep understanding of how children think and feel, and is able to work with them in encouraging ways and troubleshoot when needed. I have never met such a sensitive, thoughtful and resourceful tutor. We only hope she’ll still be available if we need her again.
