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.

Vanessa, 6 lessons with Laura

Grateful to have found Laura!

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!

Maryann, 5 lessons with Laura

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.

Paul, 1 lesson with Laura

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.

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!!

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!

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, 59 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.
