Learning how to learn is a skill not always addressed in school. When students get home they sometimes struggle with what teachers want them to do. Lorri specializes in equipping students with instructional scaffolding strategies to grasp underlying concepts and skills. Over time, these supports are gradually removed as students’ own cognitive learning skills and knowledge develop.

“The teacher is of course an artist, but being an artist does not mean that he or she can make the profile, can shape the students. What the educator does in teaching is to make it possible for the students to become themselves.” — Paulo Freire
