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.
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 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.Marley, 15 lessons with Laura
Energetic Math tutor who really connects with Teens
Laura has been a very effective geometry tutor for my 10th grade son. She demonstrates a high attention to detail and is proactive in her approach to instruction. My son felt very comfortable learning from Laura and feels secure heading into his 10th grade accelerated math class. Thank you Laura!!Leslie, 5 lessons with Laura
Flexible & knowledgeable tutor
Our daughter needed short term (a few days) help with her online college algebra class. Laura's fast communication, quick scheduling & excellent tutoring was greatly appreciated.Andrea , 3 lessons with Laura
Knowledgeable and professional math tutor
She went out of her way to help me, and she let me stay as long as I needed to before an exam. She is very knowledgeable as well as kind. Laura really explains things so it is very easy to follow and very interesting. We studied for over an hour with no break and I still was focused and followed everything she explained. Thanks Laura!Judy, 5 lessons with Laura
Knowledgeable and patient tutor
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.Teresa, 39 lessons with Laura
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.Diana, 5 lessons with Laura
Laura helped make learning geometry fun!
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.Braydn, 4 lessons with Laura
Patient and capable
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.Romey, 13 lessons with Laura
Great first experience
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.Gretchen, 2 lessons with Laura
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!Joshua, 6 lessons with Laura
