Hi!

I moved to Minneapolis from South Florida 8 years ago, where I have certification in Secondary Math, grades 6-12, and Special Education K-12. 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 for 20 + years.

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! I always find time to assist my students, even if it is simply over a text or email to get through a difficult concept.

My hobbies include spending time with my family and pets and spending time outdoors whenever possible.

Laura is wonderful!

Laura has been working with my son for several weeks to help him catch up and stay on track in a challenging Algebra class. My son appreciates her patience and teaching style, which includes multiple strategies for solving a problem. My son has so much more confidence since working with Laura and is doing great in the class. Laura is extremely responsive and flexible, which I appreciate as well.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Laura helped my son significantly raise his math grade. She was familiar with the curriculum our school uses & was able to explain Algebra 2 to him. Laura had great flexibility, and honestly wanted him to improve. Laura was incredible!!

AMAZING :)

My daughter has improved incredibly with her geometry honors class since Laura began tutoring her. Laura is very smart, patient and a wonderful listener and person. My daughter looks forward to her weekly lessons with Laura and understands 100% how she teaches geometry. We so thankful we found her.

Very knowledgeable and made things easy to understand

Laura helped my daughter get ready for a unit test in Algrebra 2. She was struggling with some concepts and needed the extra help. She was much more prepared for the test and ended up with a better grade as a result!

Patient and knows her stuff

Laura has helped my son with his algebra 2 class. He is now grasping the homework and has more confidence. My son usually dislikes tutors, however with Laura, he is comfortable with her and asks questions. Laura also has a flexible schedule.

My 14-year-old daughter has worked with Laura twice so far, and has already gained confidence with her math skills. Laura is incredibly kind, positive and knowledgeable. It’s obvious she has a passion for teaching/tutoring!

My son really liked her approach

In our first session my son really liked her approach and her level of knowledge on the subject matter. We will plan to use her again. Subject matter was geometry.

Fantastic Tutor!

Great tutor! My 8th grade daughter felt comfortable from the very first session and was excited to be able to continue to work with Laura. I would highly recommend Laura to any family looking for a tutor for their child.
