I am a retired teacher, private tutor and adjunct professor with a love of teaching and learning. I have over twenty years teaching experience and over five years private tutoring experience. I am qualified to tutor in all subject areas with special emphasis on reading, writing, math, science and executive function/test taking skills. I nurture strong relationships with my clients so the needs of my student are met. I specialize in reluctant and/or disillusioned students and am successful in making my students love learning again. I cultivate a safe environment in which my students are encouraged to ask questions. I make learning fun!

During my over 20 years of teaching, I have taught children in grades pre-k through 8th grade in all subject areas. I have also coached elementary school teachers in science and math.

Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

I have worked as a math and science teacher and math/science coach for over twenty years. I am an adjunct professor In math methods. I have tutored children who believe math is 'not for them' and have had success in giving them the confidence to believe they can do math by breaking down concepts into manageable 'chunks.' I have experience with math dyscalculia. I think with the right approach, the willingness to keep trying different methods and imparting to the student and parents that progress in math is attainable, my students can learn and be excited by their own achievement.

Very well prepared

Laura helped my son with an annotation assignment. She had read the book and done a lot of preparing ahead of time, reviewed themes and symbols with him, and helped him with a well organized plan to meet the requirements. She is clearly a very experienced teacher, encouraging, thoughtful, and efficient. Would definitely recommend.
