Let's get our math confidence back!
My Name is Lori. I had always struggled in math and I had a lot of math anxiety all throughout school. The funny thing was, as much as I struggled in math, the more I loved math. I had a few amazing teachers that encouraged me and helped me realize it wasn't that I was bad at math, I was just missing pieces of information, and I just had to learn where I could find that information.

My Name is Lori. I had always struggled in math and I had a lot of math anxiety all throughout school. The funny thing was, as much as I struggled in math, the more I loved math. I had a few amazing teachers that encouraged me and helped me realize it wasn't that I was bad at math, I was just missing pieces of information, and I just had to learn where I could find that information. I worked my way through college earning a BA in Mathematics with a certification in Secondary Education. I then taught High School mathematics in NJ for 4 years. I taught Algebra 1, Geometry and a class for students who couldn't pass the state tests. Before I was hired I had been a long term sub at the same school district teaching Pre-Algebra, Algebra II and Probability and Statistics (not my greatest strength, but I learned I had the tools to learn and teach the material as long as I make it interactive for students and myself).
I have been home with my children for 16 years, and while I have been home, I worked on my master's in math education. I have also been tutoring: Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, College Algebra, Business Calculus and basic mathematics throughout the years. Math has never come easy to me, so I typically understand what students have trouble with, and I have become very good about taking the fear out of math away from others. Eventually I would like to get back into the classroom, but for me tutoring one-on-one really helps me gain insight into how students are thinking, and allows me to cater to the individual as to what they may need to help them learn.
Lori, has been such a blessing to our family. She is an awesome tutor that is patient and very knowledgeable. I would recommend her as a tutor.Tina, 11 lessons with Lori
Knowledgeable and patient
I was lucky to find Lori as my math tutor. She is very patient and knowledgeable in math. She has helped me to overcome my anxiety when it comes to math. Lori goes over every problem step by step, and if you don't understand she will explain everything in a way you can understand.Rich, 14 lessons with Lori

Lori is helping too much with my son's algebra lesson. She is very kind person and is a motivated with adolescent people.Roxana, 16 lessons with Lori
The most amazing thing that I have noticed in my daughter that she looks forward to go to Lori. It tells me that Lori is kind of a teacher that student will love to go to. My daughter is getting a lot better in her math concepts like Fractions, place value, it was just her third lesson with Lori and I felt a big difference in her math progress.Sobia, 20 lessons with Lori
Very Helpful and Knowledgeable and patient tutor High Recommended!
Lori took extra steps and contacted the school teacher to get some of the work that Jenson has been doing ... she is awesome!!!!!!!!Jenson, 16 lessons with Lori
Great to work with, helped us at the last minute, wish all teachers were like her
My son liked how she worked with him more like a friend then a teacher. She gave him positive feedback which he wasn't receiving at school and made learning about a subject he hates more interesting He was able to pass a final that hinged on him getting a passing grade or he would have failed the subject. He made it and I'm sure he wouldn't have if we hadn't found her.Tammya, 2 lessons with Lori
Lori is an excellent tutor! She has helped our son so much and only in about a 1/2 dozen sessions. She is very flexible and goes out of her way to accommodate us! I just can't say enough about her. And on top of everything, she makes it fun for our son to learn!!!Carol, 24 lessons with Lori
I have a tough time with math and need to do all the steps rather then quick reasoning. Lori was a great. I tried learning through the Internet and failed, so it was nice to have someone speak your language so to speak.Samantha , 1 lesson with Lori
