I’m Laura, and I’ve tutored all levels (K through adult) in a variety of subjects, with over 1,000 hours of tutoring experience. I have worked for three tutoring companies and have also taught students through independent tutoring requests. I’m a professional member of the National Tutoring Association, which requires members to adhere to its Code of Ethics.
I work primarily with students grade 8 through adult in Prealgebra
1, Algebra 2
prep, SAT prep
skills. I’ve seen that these math
and writing foundations are essential to lifelong academic and professional success!
What is it like to work with me? Rather than just teaching you how to solve a problem, I can explain the “why” behind the concept. This will help you think critically about an assignment so you can apply the concept in future learning. I often ask questions to check your understanding and help you think through the material.
For academic sessions, I try to identify knowledge gaps and then fill in these gaps with the fundamentals as we work through your current assignments. For test prep sessions, I focus on reviewing key concepts and testing strategies in the weakest testing area while also practicing skills in your areas of strength to help you gain confidence in taking the test.
I offer session lengths of one hour or longer. Sessions of 1.5 to 2 hours are suggested for ACT and SAT
prep because we’ll be preparing in three different ways: reviewing subject matter, learning test strategies, and practicing the test. Two-hour sessions are also helpful for catching up in a class or for reviewing an entire topic, especially before an exam.
