Lanna is extremely excited to work with The Chicago Home Tutor. She will assist students on the North Shore and the northwest suburbs. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Purdue University in 2001 in Psychology, with a minor in mathematics. Feeling something was missing, she returned to school in 2005 to earn her teaching certification at Indiana Wesleyan University, re-enrolling again to receive her Master of Education degree in 2010.

She arrives with 10 years of teaching high school math at Whiteland Community High School in Whiteland, Indiana, where she taught a wide range of students from honors students to struggling students requiring special services. She has experience working with students with Autism, ADHD (which her daughter also has), LD, ED, and other learning disabilities. She specializes in Geometry, Algebra 1 and 2, Statistics, Finite Math, and Discrete Math, and also has knowledge of middle school math, trigonometry, pre-calculus and calculus. She cares about each and every student and will not rest until the student gains the knowledge he or she is striving for.

With a 13, 10 and 5 year old, she enjoys school sports and traveling with her family. She loves to read, make crafts and homemade items, and host Mary Kay parties.

What Parents Say:

The Chicago Home Tutor has had a transformative effect on our son's reading and writing ability over a really short period of time. Our tutor is fun, approachable and our son loves her classes. He learns by playing and he is proud to show us his progress. She details improvements and compares our child to the average at his age. It's invaluable to know where he stands and how he's doing great. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Chicago Home Tutor to every parent seeking for a top class tutor.

The Chicago Tutor was a wonderful gift during a challenging time for my daughter. The whole process worked marvelously smoothly. Ryan was terrific - he kept my daughter motivated and feeling secure. He was also responsive to changes when they became necessary. And he could teach the material well. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

Our tutor is an excellent and engaging tutor. She works with my 7 year old daughter on math concepts and is very effective. My daughter actually looks forward to working with her. She is very conscientious and professional; she is always prepared with materials and has multiple ways of approaching the subject. I would highly recommend the Chicago Home Tutor to anyone in need of a tutor.

I am so happy with the Chicago Home Tutor. You can tell our tutor, Laura, has prepared every class meticulously and knows perfectly what each student needs. My son has improved a lot with her help, and he smiles every time I tell him that he will be seeing Ms. R.
