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!

Excellent- she helped my 2 teens

Laura has a great rapport with teens, both my son and daughter liked her teaching style. My son needed review help for a timed electrician apprentice program math test and my daughter reviewed SAT math. Thanks Laura!

Laura is just Awesome for Precalculus!!!

Laura is Awesome. I'm so confident after seeing the first test score of my kid. She scored a 96 after 3-4 lessons. My daughter is picky about her tutors and she immediately got comfortable with Laura and her methodologies.

My Niece loved her!

Laura is helping my niece prepare for her pre calculus final! My niece said Laura made it very easy for her to understand. Laura was super flexible with times even though she was in a different time zone and helped her over the weekend. I am beyond thankful 😃

Laura is a lifesaver, extremely knowledgeable, Patient and explains things to my daughter to where she completely gets it. Laura is flexible with her schedule as my daughters schedule can get very complicated at times.

Knowledgeable and patient

Pre Calculus- Laura worked with my daughter on pre calculus concepts. She explained problems, helped my daughter work through the process and gave her confidence to continue on her own.

Karen, 3 lessons with Laura

Flexible and helpful

Laura has been wonderful, helping my son fill in holes from algebra due to schools shutting down last spring. She is able to help review current mistakes as well as reinforce underlying theory to support further learning. We highly recommend her!

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.
