Hi, my name is Laurie. The best way I can say it is "I love math". I have enjoyed math since I was a small child. Math is all around us and once you are comfortable with it, many aspects of life are much easier. My most recent teaching experience was in Texas where I taught 6th grade math for 4 years. I absolutely loved it. My students were/are able to see the true enjoyment I get from working with math. Budget cutbacks forced some lay-offs so I did not have enough seniority to weather the storm. (Recently moved to Rockford to renovate an old home and and be near my oldest daughter.)

I did quite a bit of tutoring immediately following my lay-off and enjoyed it immensely! Students are able to absorb so much more from a one-on-one lesson without the class disruptions and fear of answering incorrectly in front of their peers. I currently hold a valid Texas Teaching Certificate and will continue to obtain the necessary Continuing Education hours to keep it current. I look forward to working with your son or daughter as we conquer their fears and instill confidence.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I currently hold a valid Texas Teaching Certificate in Elementary Education for grades four through eight. Math is my favorite area to teach but am certified as a Generalist with the 4-8th grade category.
