Hi, I'm Laura! Here's the short version of what you need to know about me:

Experience:
Tutoring put me through college! I built a very large client base as an in-home tutor in Colorado Springs. I tutored middle and high school math, English, and ACT/SAT prep. I did that 20-30 hours a week for about three years before I moved here to Boulder. In addition to being an in-home tutor, I also worked as the branch manager of a tutoring facility for about a year. In that role, I helped to develop reading and math curricula as well as taught several classes in a larger classroom setting. I don't use this site very much, so it won't reflect this, but I have banked well over 300 hours of tutoring sessions.

Teaching style:
I'm very conversational and I love to make my own visual aids. I'll always bring supplemental materials for you to work on (always encouraged, never required). I'm relaxed -- if you need to tell me how much you dislike this class/teacher, do it. Texting or emailing me questions outside of our sessions is always okay (and free!).

Academic credentials:
I received my BA in Political Science from Colorado College in December 2012 and graduated with a 3.9 GPA. I'm currently a second-year law student at the University of Colorado School of Law, where I have a 3.7 GPA. I scored in the 90th percentile on my LSAT. I scored a 34 on the ACT and a 2210 on the SAT.

I won't recite my entire resume here, but you're welcome to see it on request! Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about me, my experience, my style, your own student's concerns, etc. I'm very responsive to email and I will respond within 24 hours.
