About Laura

Hi! I love helping people, which is why I've chosen to be a tutor. Whether it's elementary-school-aged children learning the fundamentals, high school students preparing to take their ACTs, SATs or a class test, or adults who are working on a degree, I love being the person to help them learn new material and achieve their goals.

I was in the U.S. Air Force, where I worked as a Public Affairs Officer for six years. During my time in the military, and in years prior during high school and the U.S. Air Force Academy, I tutored my coworkers and peers on a wide range of topics. I have lots of experience in writing/English, but I also enjoy math and science and other subjects. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Humanities and my Master's degree in Liberal Arts, so I'm well versed in the full spectrum of academics. I'm excited about being a tutor and having the opportunity to teach others and help them overcome any struggles they have in the classroom.

I do have a cancellation policy of four hours, but I am happy to reschedule lessons in order to meet students' needs.

I am willing to travel in and around the local area (Pinehurst, Southern Pines, Aberdeen, etc.) in order to meet students in an agreed-upon setting.

While I can tutor students in a wide-range of areas, I enjoy problem-solving and that's what I love about math. I've studied math for many years (to include post-calculus classes) and have been tutoring my peers throughout all my classes. I work very hard to find ways to break down the concepts and explain the problem-solving process in understandable terms.

If you are looking for a tutor who is patient, kind and easy to work with, then I'm the tutor for you. Please contact me so we can set up a lesson!

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.

Logic

I have always had strong problem-solving and reasoning skills, which have helped me succeed in all areas of study, especially mathematics. I also enjoy solving logic puzzles. I took the LSAT, a logic and reasoning test, on a whim and scored a 92%. My strong communication abilities allow to me explain reasoning process to others, which helps them comprehend how to reach the solution.

Public Speaking

As a Public Affairs Officer in the U.S. Air Force I have had six years of real-world experience involving daily public speaking. Whether it was holding meetings with my 20-person staff, briefing the base commander about important issues or addressing media members in a press conference, I have accumulated hundreds if not thousands of hours of experience in this area. In addition to this, I have received official military training on giving speeches and interviews and, in turn, I have provided that training to many military members. I would consider myself an expert in this area and very well qualified to be a tutor for a student in need of public speaking assistance.
