Rand Consulting LLC offers a range services including; direct consultation with parents/students as a learning specialist, direct consultation with parent/student/school system as an educational consultant, child advocacy services within the PPT and 504 meetings, educational testing, and comprehensive college planning and placement services including individual SAT tutoring.
Lauren started her business in June 2010, incorporating in February 2011, after working in the school system tutoring and child advocating for over 10 years. Lauren holds a masters in special education and prides herself on being able to support the learning process of children, particularly in those who learn in a nontraditional manner.
Lauren would like to add this about her services, “Over my 13+ years in the public school system I have worked alongside mostly middle and high school students with a wide range of disabilities including behavioral disorders, learning disabilities, attentional issues and those on the autism spectrum. I have developed model programs for effective co-teaching models both in the middle and high school level. In addition I established a successful program to integrate students with serious emotional and behavioral issues back into their neighborhood middle school. After leaving the public school to raise a family I began to work part-time on an individual basis with students initially in the role of a tutor. This evolved over time as I began to see that providing subject-based assistance did not truly allow for the student to learn how to learn. I decided that I wanted to utilize my expertise on how students learn, my knowledge of the school system and curriculum, along with my skills as an educator and advocate to provide a unique service which would allow learners, with short-term assistance to reach their potential.”
Setting aside time just for family is how Lauren keeps her busy schedule balanced, she makes days and times just for family and doesn’t let work intervene. She also credits the support of her husband and utilizes in home child care when needed.
To other mom entrepreneurs she advises, “find an area of expertise or niche where you excel. Try to connect with those in this area to see if there is a need. If so, then utilize connections, word of mouth, and other avenues to develop a business. Don't get discouraged!”
