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 tuturing 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 uisng 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 abilty to explain math...

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 tuturing 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 uisng 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 abilty 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 explantions 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!

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.
