Lisa, 6 lessons with LauraLaura was patient, knowledgeable, communicative, and kind. We couldn't have asked for a better tutor to get my kid through Algebra II. I highly recommend her.

Dear future student,

I have tutored and taught students since 1996 at levels from Pre-K to College. I have a Bachelor's degree in Math and an MD. In 2018, before I moved to Maine, I worked in the Boston area with Summit Educational Group, which holds very high standards for its tutors. This was an honor.

I enjoy tutoring because I get to provide real help to people as they pursue their goals. I also appreciate the challenges of listening well, assigning appropriate work, and giving...

## Five Stars

Laura was patient, knowledgeable, communicative, and flexible . Totally indebted to her for getting my daughter through algebra II. Thank you, Laura.

Lisa, 6 lessons with Laura

## Nana sits in and Katie Rocking!

I will consult Nana, but I feel she has truly given Katie a solid helping of both fundamentals and now Katie is truly teachable. I'll gush more about Laura later!

Michael, 7 lessons with Laura

## Kind, Gentle, So far--Impressed!

Laura is terrific thus far. My daughter is comfortable, absorbing. Laura used a board game reimagined to help assess and teach 4th grade math for my Katim! For further details, check back in about 10 days:)!😉

## Great Algebra II Tutor!

Laura was great. We would recommend her highly. Laura was on time and very communicative. My daughter was able to connect with her immediately and felt that she learned a lot more than she has in class.

JOHN, 1 lesson with Laura

## Very helpful.

Laura worked with my 10 year old daughter in math. We were visiting Maine for the summer and didn't want our daughter to lose her math momentum going into 5th grade. Laura helped get her back up to speed and showed her some new methods. Laura was patient, kind, gentle and soft spoken. My daughter responded wonderfully to her temperament and teaching methods.

Mark, 3 lessons with Laura

## Knowledgeable and patient teacher

Laura brought her TEAS book for the exam I need and that impressed me. We dug right in and found what I was weak in. I have a lot of homework and I will see her next week. She adjusted her method of teaching to accommodate my old fashioned method. She is a good teacher.
