About Laura


Bio

I taught high school math for 8 years in Montgomery County. I taught Geometry, Algebra 2, SAT Prep and Pre Calculus. I ‘retired’ to raise my family, but I have been tutoring pretty regularly for the past 5 years. I have mostly gotten clients through word of mouth and through friends of friends, but I thought I would try using Wyzant to get more clients.

All of the students that I have tutored say the same thing- “wow- that makes so much sense”. I have the ability to explain math topics...

I taught high school math for 8 years in Montgomery County. I taught Geometry, Algebra 2, SAT Prep and Pre Calculus. I ‘retired’ to raise my family, but I have been tutoring pretty regularly for the past 5 years. I have mostly gotten clients through word of mouth and through friends of friends, but I thought I would try using Wyzant to get more clients.

All of the students that I have tutored say the same thing- “wow- that makes so much sense”. I have the ability to explain math topics in a way that teenagers understand. I won’t talk above their level and expect them to ‘just know it’. I explain topics in full detail and will provide alternate explanations and examples. I bring a textbook with me and sometimes bring worksheets and other helpful tools. I can honestly say that I have helped at least a dozen kids raise their grade after meeting with me 2-3 times. Sometimes it only takes an hour to teach a student some topic that they just can’t figure out!

I have a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and began teaching math immediately after graduating from college. I taught a wide variety of students in 4 different subject areas for 8 years. I have also tutored those same subjects for about 10 years.

During the school year, I am available almost every evening from 4-8 and on Saturday mornings. During the summer, I am totally flexible and will work with you to find what works best for both of us!

Laura was great!

She worked with my daughter on SAT prep and was tremendous help. Very patient and really knows how to explain concepts thoroughly so that my daughter “got it.” Highly recommend.

Lou, 1 lesson with Laura

Patient and clear

Laura helped my daughter work through problems for 8th grade geometry class. She set a nice positive tone and pace, allowing my daughter to work through the problems (rather than just showing her the answers). So when they were done, my daughter felt she actually could do the next set on her own. My kiddo ended their session feeling much more confident.

Very helpful!

Laura stepped in when we were in a pinch. My daughter had missed some content and now that we are out of school, she was having a hard time moving forward. Laura was readily available, easy to work with, professional but accessible, and got the job done. Great tutor!

Results!

Laura's teaching style has resulted in my son rapidly catching up and learning new concepts. A's on his last two quizzes!

Jennifer, 7 lessons with Laura

Great first session

My son said he liked the way Laura explained things to him on their very first session. He felt like he could tackle his Algebra test more confidently. We will be using her again for help!

Wayne, 20 lessons with Laura

Patient and accommodating to different styles of learning for not everyone learns the same way.

After only one - 1hr lesson Laura had already helped make concepts begin to flow more easily and actually so much more easily then being in a classroom for 80 min each day.

Finally!!!

Laura explained the Algebra II concepts in a way that made sense to my daughter for the first time. Definitely will be booking another session. So thankful that she responded to me so quickly.

Great Algebra 2 tutor

My daughter always struggles in math. She’s in high school and in algebra 2. We only had one session so far but my daughter left that session saying that she understands better and that Laura helped her a lot. She was early and waiting for us at the library. And was ready to review old stuff with my daughter and take control and make use of the entire hour. My daughter has tendency to bring one worksheet. Say she needs help on that one sheet that takes 15 minutes. I’ve had plenty of tutors who after that 15 minutes are asking my kid for direction on what else she needs help with and when my kid just sits there confused, they are like "ok well I guess we are finished then." I’m SO HAPPY Laura didn’t do that. She knows math builds on itself and if my daughter is struggling now there HAS to be past ideas and concepts she didn’t understand either. I would HIGHLY recommend Laura. Plus she was REASONABLE in pricing so I can afford to have her tutor more often and get my daughter caught up and help have her not be embarrassed to go to class anymore where other students roll their eyes at her because she asks the teacher so many questions. Very grateful to have Laura and my daughter looks forward to seeing her again!

If you need a Trig/PreCalculus tutor for your son/daughter, you won't be disappointed!

My son is enrolled in HS Trig/PreCalculus, and was failing the class miserably. He was struggling just to keep up with the class, and memorize and keep all of the formulas straight. After just TWO sessions with Laura, he has changed his attitude, learned several new ways to graph, relearn a lot of the material he was having trouble with. As a result, his overall grade is beginning to climb, and he is beginning to feel much better about this class as a whole! I highly recommend Laura as a tutor to help your child succeed!

Excellent Tutor

My son enjoyed studying with Laura. We plan to use her each week until he is confident enough to pass his GED! She was very prompt and professional.
