About Laura

Hi!

I just moved to Minneapolis from South Florida, where I have certification in Secondary Math, grades 6-12, and Special Education. I have taught in the public schools for 7 years, private/homeschool for 10, and online with Florida Virtual School for 2. I have also tutored a variety of students and levels from home school, private and public school, including online courses.

I have a knack of making math easier for my students and have had many go from hating math to truly liking it. Let me build your self-esteem in a positive motivating environment and open the doors for you!

My hobbies include spending time with my family, watching my boys play hockey and all forms of outdoor physical activities.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

My certification is in secondary mathematics, grades 6-12 and Special Education. I have taught Algebra I classes in public, private and home school for 8 years. Algebra I is my favorite subject to teach, as I love see the students make connections at this basic high school level so they can be successful in the more advanced classes. My experiences have given me the open mind to approach problems in many different ways, until the student understands.

Algebra 2

I have current certification in secondary mathematics, grades 6-12 and special education. I taught Algebra II classes in a private school for 7 years. I have 10 years experience tutoring Algebra 2. I love tutoring the Algebra series, as I have many different approaches, and enjoy seeing the "light bulb go off" when a student begins to understand.

Geometry

I am certified in secondary mathematics, grades 6-12. I have taught Geometry and Geometry Honors classes online, in public, private and home school and tutored geometry one on one.

Prealgebra

I am certified in secondary mathematics, grades 6-12. I have taught Pre-Algebra classes in public and private school for 8 years. I have tutored Pre-Algebra students for 10 years, and am often referred to others because of my patience and many different approaches I try until the student can make the connection to be successful. It is my joy to see the student become proficient at this level, as it sets up a future of mathematical success.

Outstanding, Really an Amazing Math Teacher — Laura is tutoring my 12-year-old daughter, Marley, Algebra 1. She is sooo good, really outstanding. Marley had math anxiety to the point of missing a lot of school to avoid it. In the past she has also refused or stopped private tutoring for the same reason. Only Laura M has been able to reach her. Laura has helped Marley overcome her math anxiety and actually learn Algebra at a fast rate. This h ...
