Welcome to my page! My name is Laura and I have 5 years teaching experience. I graduated from Florida State University in 2009 with a degree in Secondary Mathematics Education. I am certified in mathematics for grades 5-12 in South Carolina and Florida with an add on for working with the Gifted and Talented. I absolutely love teaching math and specifically enjoy working with students to individually meet their goals.
My experience in classroom teaching is with grades 6-12 in subjects from 6th Grade Everyday Math through Algebra 2 Honors. I have tutored pre-algebra through calculus. I have worked with students with special needs and with students who have a real talent in math. I enjoy working with students at all levels in math, but would consider my strengths (and interests) to be in Algebra 1 and Geometry.
When working with students I like to adapt the material to their learning styles and interests. I feel that private tutoring is a great way to work with individuals to meet their needs and harbor a great love and interest in learning.
I have experience, and am able to work with, students who need intervention, enrichment, regular homework assistance, test prep, and online class assistance.
Learning, understanding, and teaching mathematics is my passion and I am excited about the opportunity to share it with you!
