About Laura

My name is Laura and I have been a teacher/ tutor since 1986 (don't gasp) in public and private schools. The classes that I have been teaching are Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, College Algebra, and PreCalc. The last 6 years I was acting Department Chair for the school's math department.

I have always felt it is important to know and understand how to do math concepts using pencil and paper as well as using a TI-84 calculator. I would be thrilled to assist you in your mathematic journey (be it a journey you enjoy or one that you must endure). I will share my brain with you. If we need to fill a hole in your learning so that you can continue and be successful - I can help with that as well.

Contact me and we can make plans to get started.

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.

ACT Math

I have helped many students prepare for the ACT. I have old ACT review problems that we can work through and learn strategies. The level of math classes that he has taken will greatly affect his prep.

Algebra 1

I have taught Algebra 1 at the high school level for 20 years. I have experience working with students with all different abilities.

Algebra 2

I taught algebra 2 for 13 years. I am very comfortable in pencil and paper method as well as helping understand how to use the TI graphing calculator.

Elementary Math

I have a great understanding of basic skills that students need to succeed in basic math and can help with building those skills to be able to apply them to other math courses and levels that they will encounter.
