I am an engineer with a Lean Sigma Master Black Belt certification, who has been tutoring elementary, middle, high school and college students for the past 10 years. In addition, I have been teaching physics and math at IUS and Ivy Tech for the past 8 years, and teaching leadership skills in the business world for the past 10 years. I see myself not only as a tutor, but as a role model and mentor for all of my students. This year, two of my students graduated from high school, and I started tutoring them when they were in the 5th grade. Another passion of mine is to help young people prepare for standardized tests (ISTEP, ACT, SAT, GRE, MCAT, etc.).

Laura made email contact within the day and we had a session within the week. My son has told me that Laura was helpful and he really liked her, we have already scheduled another session. All of this coming from a young teen!!
Laura was a big help in preparing for my SAT test. She gave me some great tips, and we went over the areas where I missed questions the first test. I am confident that my score will improve this time.
Laura is an excellent instructor. My twins utilized Laura for physics and calculus and she was wonderful - both girls passed their college classes.
Laura, thank you, thank you, thank you so much for your courtesy and time spent with me going over my final exam. Your help was very appreciated and truly helpful!! I wished I'd had contacted you earlier in my class... I would definitely refer you to anyone needed help in math! Thanks so much!!
Laura has been working with our son to help bring up his grade in his Physics class. Laura is able to explain concepts and the associated math to our son whose grade has improved. Laura was able to identify one of our son's problems and focused in on helping him overcome the problem. We recommend Laura for Physics and any of the related subjects she has knowledge.
I needed a tutor for college physics and Laura has been fantastic. She was helpful in teaching me a method to approach problems, and assists me in finding where I have gone wrong in solving problems. She is also very patient when I need to go back over information from previous chapters.
I needed help with the stats portion of my thesis project and I couldn't believe how quickly Laura was able to put things in order. She is an outstanding teacher and I would highly recommend her.
Laura got right to work with me and I left feeling that I could do the work. I am gaining confidence that I can learn algebra where I was totally lost before. THANK YOU LAURA!
Laura was prompt and ready from the first lesson. She is extremely knowledgeable in the subject content and my son is feeling more confident already. Wish we'd found Laura sooner!
Laura was very accommodating. She worked with us on short notice. She explained the material so that my son understood.
My 17 yo son is being tutored by Laura for the math portion of the ACT and SAT. My son states that it is worth every dime...he tells me she is tremendously kind, patient and explains in ways that he understands. I know if he felt it was not worth it, he would tell me because when I initially told him he would be tutored, he was less than thrilled....so, if he didn't like it or think it was worth it, I am certain he would say. Since his first session, he has never complained or argued about going. Very very happy we found Laura...she is very flexible as well. Highly recommend.
Laura was pleasant and prompt. My son really liked her as well. She was able to provide more recommendations aftet just the first session.
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.

I have used Microsoft Project for the past 15 years to manage and coordinate projects at work - from simple projects (such as coordinating a design review) to projects on the scale of remodeling a dozen hospital units.

I find that more and more elementary schools are dropping spelling as a subject, and as a result, I added spelling to my list of tutoring subjects 2 years ago. I use a curriculum that builds on basic phonetic rules, noting exceptions to those rules as they occur.
