About Lara

This is my 10th year of teaching high school level mathematics from pre algebra, algebra 1, geometry, algebra 2, and pre calculus. I love working with students and finding ways to help them understand the concept they are struggling with. I've had several students enter my classes "disliking math" and end up exiting "loving math." For me, students dislike math because it was taught to them in a way where they do not understand it. However, through differentiated instruction, they can strive to be successful and their motivation increases.

In addition to teaching high school level mathematics, this is my 6th year teaching beginning algebra and intermediate algebra at the college level. Like high school, as long as students put forth 100 percent effort and communicate effectively about their struggles, they will be successful learners.

My years of expertise allow me to pin point areas that students generally struggle with.

If you need any help understanding concepts in pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, algebra 2, SAT practice, or college algebra, please feel free to contact me.
