I am an engineer with a Lean Sigma Master Black Belt certification, who has been tutoring elementary, middle, high school and college students for the past 10 years. In addition, I have been teaching physics and math at IUS and Ivy Tech for the past 8 years, and teaching leadership skills in the business world for the past 10 years. I see myself not only as a tutor, but as a role model and mentor for all of my students. This year, two of my students graduated from high school, and I started tutoring them when they were in the 5th grade. Another passion of mine is to help young people prepare for standardized tests (ISTEP, ACT, SAT, GRE, MCAT, etc.).

Great working with schedules

She definitely helped my son prepare for the college exam. He feels more prepared and thinks he will so just fine. She worked with our schedule, since we were on a time crunch.

Sarah, 1 lesson with Laura

Great tutor

Laura S. helped me out with my physics and did a good job and helping me understand it a lot better.

Jake, 1 lesson with Laura

Great teacher

Just had first lesson for 2 kids. Kids are apparently impressed (grudgingly let it on of course). We felt confident we had made the right choice. Results hopefully will confirm our first impression. Meanwhile she is prompt, responsive and affable.

Yunus, 15 lessons with Laura

Outstanding knowledgeable compansiante in helping students

It's been thirty years since statistics, Laura was very kind, I would highly recommend this great professor. I hope has a professor I can follow what it truly means to be an educator

David, 3 lessons with Laura

Prompt, professional, and caring.

We only have had one lesson so far but she has a plan for my daughter's lessons. We are looking forward to the progress she will make.

Karen , 8 lessons with Laura

Excellent Tutor

Laura was a big help in preparing for my SAT test. She gave me some great tips, and we went over the areas where I missed questions the first test. I am confident that my score will improve this time.

Timothy, 3 lessons with Laura

Wonderful

Laura is an excellent instructor. My twins utilized Laura for physics and calculus and she was wonderful - both girls passed their college classes.

Michelle, 3 lessons with Laura

Great Tutor!

Laura, thank you, thank you, thank you so much for your courtesy and time spent with me going over my final exam. Your help was very appreciated and truly helpful!! I wished I'd had contacted you earlier in my class... I would definitely refer you to anyone needed help in math! Thanks so much!!

Angela, 1 lesson with Laura

Great tutor and very responsive to our harried schedule.

Laura has been working with our son to help bring up his grade in his Physics class. Laura is able to explain concepts and the associated math to our son whose grade has improved. Laura was able to identify one of our son's problems and focused in on helping him overcome the problem. We recommend Laura for Physics and any of the related subjects she has knowledge.
