Information about Tutor Dr. La Vergne Lestermeringolo Thatch

I am an Academic Coach who is a teacher, tutor, learner, presenter, researcher, parent, wife, and consultant. I began my teaching career in 1991, in the New York Public School System, as a paraprofessional. In 1993, I became a secondary-level science and mathematics teacher. I planned instructional strategies that were appropriate to the needs and strengths of each student. I developed and facilitated workshops in high school Mathematics, Science and ESL/Bi-Lingual workshops for administrators, teachers, and parents.
As I worked diligently in the classroom with students, over an eight year period, one of my greatest accomplishments was the development of The Thatch Method. Within the teaching and learning model of The Thatch Method, the teacher and student roles are interchangeable. This effective method allows for a deeper levels of Science, Mathematics, and Reading teaching and learning.

I am known for my ability to go beyond the student?s difficulties in order to help him or her achieve his or her academic goals. Throughout my career, I have worked tirelessly to build educational environments and design instructional approaches that truly foster learning.
