“**Very thorough, communicative, and flexible!**”

I am a 2016 Amherst College graduate with a BA in Mathematics and Theater & Dance. I have recently move to New York from Naples, FL to pursue my career in playwriting and want to continue my passions in math and education through tutoring! I have spent over 5 years tutoring elementary, middle, and high school students in a variety of subjects

Lara is approved to conduct lessons through Wyzant Online. Wyzant Online allows students and tutors to work remotely via video, audio, and collaborative whiteboard tools. For more information about how online tutoring works, check out Wyzant Online.

If you’re interested in online lessons, message Lara to get started.

We called Lara to give my 8th-grade son some one-on-one help preparing for the SHSAT, and he felt that she did a terrific job explaining math concepts that hadn't been clear to him before. She came to our sessions very prepared with problems for him to work on, and also gave him an assignment for the next session. Their time together was very productive. She was also quick to respond to me, and very accommodating schedule-wise.

I would highly recommend Lara for math and/or test prep.

My daughter was struggling in Geometry, and Lara was a tremendous help. She is very patient and attentive. After working with Lara, my daughter was able to grasp concepts she was having difficulties with. Plus, Lara prepared an excellent review sheet to summarize the topics they covered. I highly recommend her!

I understood everything! She was patient and knowledgeable. The writing section started to seem easy when she explained. Looking forward to another lesson

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.

I've spent the past five years aiding middle and high school students in a variety of mathematics courses like algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus. My primary goal is to ensure that my students have a grasp of the material and to build their confidence in the subjects they are studying. With geometry, I help students to remember and understand the ideas behind the many equations they will come across throughout the course, and I advise techniques that help the students write clear and concise proofs that are often required in the course. Most importantly, I provide practice problems for the student and oversee how they work toward the solution. This better helps me understand the student's thought process and allows me to catch any mistakes or confusions the student may be having.

Geometry was my favorite subject in school, and I truly enjoy teaching it. I hope I am fortunate enough to work with you in this subject!

It is extraordinarily important for a student to have a good grasp of precalculus as it forms their foundation moving into the harder calculus courses. For me, it is essential for the student to understand how and why they are approaching each problem in a certain way as opposed to memorizing which formulas solve their respective questions.

I majored in mathematics in my undergraduate at Amherst College where I took courses like Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, Analysis, and Groups. In high school I took AP Calculus AB and BC.

Calculus is a lot less intimidating than people tend to think, and I'm excited to help you tackle this subject!

The SAT is all about confidence and practice. SAT tutoring sessions start out with the student taking a practice test so that I can see which types of problems they need help on. From there, we will work on those specific types of problems and continue to take practice portions of the exam to see improvement or any other weaknesses.

I majored in Theater & Dance as well as wrote a Playwriting thesis for my undergraduate degree (which was produced by the college and performed for three nights on campus). I have done extensive coursework on this subject including several acting courses, playwriting courses, directing courses, a course on playwright Anton Chekhov, a course on play reading, and courses in scene design and contemporary dance. In addition to this, I have performed in countless school plays, local theater productions, and college productions since I was in elementary school. I am currently pursing a career as a playwright and thus am actively participating in writers workshops, helping other writers with their selected works.
