About Lauretta

I am licensed to teach secondary mathematics by the South Carolina State Board of Education and the Maryland State Department of Education, middle level mathematics by the SCDE, and am endorsed by the SCDE to teach gifted and talented students. I have experience teaching Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Algebra 3, Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, and College Mathematics. I have tutored elementary through college students in mathematics for nearly four years.

My teaching style is based on learning style and needs of my individual students. I let students demonstrate what they know, and I guide them in the right direction for problems that they have more difficulty understanding. If need be, I can reteach a concept to the student that they student was taught from his or her teacher if the student did not understand. I have manipulative, or hands-on materials, that students can use if they are tactile learners. Students usually come to me with work or questions in mind, but if students have no work or question, then I am enthusiastic about teaching the students brand new material to get them ahead in their course.

Tutoring sessions with me are laid back with emphasis on learning content and creating a positive relationship between me and the student. The student's academic growth and depth of understanding of content are my two main goals for my tutees.

Other than education and mathematics, I am also interested in animals rights, nature conservation, health, science and psychology. I enjoy watching movies, singing, reading and spending time with my pet parakeet, Sky.
