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!

Different way to approch Pre Calc

Fast + result-driven!! Efficient processing! Great tutor for high school students. Glad to meet Laura for Pre Calc with my daughter. We are expecting a good grades for the future scores.

BOKYUNG, 2 lessons with Laura

Enthusiastic and knowledgeable tutor!

Laura was very patient with my daughter and accomodated us at the last minute when another tutor was unresponsive. My daughter feels she is more than ready for her big exam now.

Trigonometry

Communication was perfect. Laura helped our daughter right from the start. This was a great experience in every way. With SATs around the corner, We will definitely use her again.

Gerald, 1 lesson with Laura

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, 5 lessons 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.

John, 3 lessons with Laura

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!

Erin, 1 lesson with Laura

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.

Heather, 3 lessons with Laura

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.
