“**Outstanding, Really an Amazing Math Teacher**”

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

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 has helped Marley in her other subjects as confidence overcomes academic anxiety. It is not an exaggeration to say that Laura M. has taken Marley off a potential path of being a school dropout and put her on a path to high academic success.. We are very grateful to have her as a resource.

Laura and I went through my geometry homework for the summer and she explained all the problems very well and she was very patient with the technical difficulties that we had.

When my daughter missed several weeks of school due to an illness, Laura worked with her to explain the concepts she missed. She also gave her strategies for studying for the final (Honors Algebra II), which were very helpful. Over the years, my daughter has become convinced that she is not good in math and Laura helped take away her anxiety. She sat for the test with more confidence than she's had in years. We are definitely having Laura help her with Honors Pre-Calc right from the beginning of school next year.

We could tell that Laura has had a lot of experience with students. She is patient and quick to give positive reinforcement. The lessons were in simple terms to understand. Laura has helped us accomplish getting Braydn's homework finished while learning how to do geometry.

She taught my daughter college level geometry. She is a very capable teacher, I would recommend her to anyone facing challenges with any level of mathematics.

We were shocked at how much work she accomplished with our son. She coordinated with his math teacher so that he's prepped for the week. Plus, he likes her style and trusts her.

Laura is knowledgeable, professional, punctual, and thorough in her approach. She is especially adept at identifying, addressing, and eliminating existing "weak spots" so her students can move forward with confidence. Laura creates a comfortable environment for her students and enables a bond through her teaching methods. I recommend Laura as an excellent tutoring-choice for students of all ages!

Laura is really helping my son to be seventh grader get his brain back into "math mode" painlessly. After 2 sessions he's gaining confidence and feeling like he doesn't hate math anymore. She keeps her instruction simple and its making a big difference so far. Thanks Laura!

Laura is an outstanding math tutor. I cannot imagine anyone better. Due partly to math anxiety my 12-year-old daughter Marley began missing a lot of school. Enough to put moving on to 8th grade in jeopardy. We tried several math tutors prior to Laura, who failed to help Marley and probably increased her anxiety and lack of confidence in the subject. Laura has been the only one able to reach Marley and teach her Algebra 1. Her growing confidence in that subject has helped Marley in other subjects as well. Marley is back on track and I have no doubt this is due to Laura's effectiveness as a math tutor.

Laura really came to my rescue! My daughter was a patient at Hazelden receiving treatment for her drug and alcohol addiction. While there she needed an independent tutor to help her in Algebra. Laura didn't hesitate one bit with this unusual request. She was eager to help us and my daughter was able to continue her education while getting help. My daughter loved working with Laura and they were able to get a lot done in a short amount of time. We have since returned home from out of state and Laura will continue to tutor my daughter online. I can't say enough good things about her willingness to help at a time when my family was in crisis. She was our lifesaver for sure.

I needed a review with math to pass a test. I am so glad I chose Laura. She was very knowledgeable about all levels of math and helped me see the connections in a simple way to help me understand. She was prepared for my lessons and made sure I practiced the different problems until I succeeded. I feel confident I will pass my test.

Thank you, Laura M.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
