About Laurence

I have been tutoring Math and French for about 10 years now. Before that I was teaching computer science at college level in Montreal, Canada (where I am from) and then in a private school to children from Kindergarten to grade 8. My training as a computer programmer has allowed me to have a better than normal understanding of computer software in general. I strongly believe that you need to master topics real well before you can even start to explain them to anyone. I gravitated towards tutoring because I prefer the one on one experience compared to a classroom environment. The best part about tutoring for me is when the students show mastery of the material through assignments, and when they report that they did really well on their quizzes & tests.

In math, I have tutored over 20 students in subjects ranging from elementary math, geometry, pre-algebra, SAT and ACT math, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus, and statistics. The students I have worked with mostly get a B or above in their classes. I not only possess phenomenal math skills but I also have the ability to communicate them effectively. For French, I have mostly worked with students in the IB program, teaching conjugation, grammar, written and conversational skills required to pass the French IB exam. The students I have worked with have passed their exams with a 5 or above (on a scale from 1 to 7). I am a native French speaker. I am very strong in grammar, conjugation, oral and written skills. Great for conversational French too!

I look forward to helping you be more successful in your classes!

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.

Algebra 1

I have worked with students taking pre-algebra to college algebra so I have extensive knowledge on the subject.

Algebra 2

I have worked with students taking pre-algebra all the way to college algebra, including algebra 1 & 2, so I have extensive knowledge on the subject of Algebra 2.

Computer Programming

I studied Computer Science in college and was a programmer. I have taught basic programming to kids using Java and a software called Mediator.

French

Very strong in grammar and conjugation. I also make sure students pronounce words/sentences correctly.

Prealgebra

Since I know what to expect in algebra classes, I am the ideal candidate for prealgebra. I not only make sure students understand the material but I also make sure they are ready for what is coming up.
