Hello! My name is Mrs. Laura H. and I am a science teacher and department chair in a Public School System. I am triple-certified in science, endorsed in the areas of Chemistry, Earth Science and Biology. This fall starts my 15th year of teaching. I have a great rapport with students and have an easy-going personality. My niche in tutoring is being able to put difficult concepts into layman's terms that everyone can understand. Outside of teaching and tutoring, my husband and I love spending time with our dogs and our horses. I look forward to being able to work with each of you in the field of science.

Laura replied on 5/8/2014

The student was a very smart young man to work with. At our last session, he had missed class and was quite confused with the material. We worked diligently on the basics of Stoichiometric calculations, including percent yield and limiting reagents. After about 45 minutes, he dismissed me for the rest of the session. I asked him twice if I could help more in any other way to which he replied no. I encouraged him to practice the calculations as practice builds confidence with the subject matter. I conveyed these thoughts to the mother in a lesson review and to her husband in an email as they both had separate WyzAnt accounts. As stated to both parents, it was a pleasure to work with such a bright young man for the time I was able.

Great Tutor — Laura was very professional. She went through the material my daughter was having problems with and came up with a plan to help her to better understand the concepts. My daughter felt much more confident with the material after a few sessions with Laura. I would highly recommend her. ...
