Laura developed a love for math while competing on her high school’s math team. Both Laura and the team won national math championships. She went to M.I.T. on a full Navy ROTC scholarship, and was then stationed as an officer in the Philippines and Panama. Since then, she has worked in fields as diverse as IT, local politics, and costume-rearing of endangered whooping crane chicks. Her diversity of life and work experience adds to her ability to connect with students of all levels and backgrounds.While getting her Master’s in Entomology at the University of Maryland College Park, she was a teaching assistant for biology, and served as graduate student body president. After trying tutoring a few years ago, she has been wonderfully surprised at how fulfilling and enjoyable it has been. She enjoys all topics she tutors, especially her SAT prep classes and enjoys being a “math therapist”. She helps students realize they can do math, and even enjoy it!
Laura enjoys gardening, her cats, and travel. She has visited 25 countries and 48 states so far.
All topics I tutor are endlessly fascinating to me, and I enjoy sharing my love of the material with students in my SAT prep classes. But, the most important thing I can do is help you overcome your obstacles. Each person learns differently, so I strive to make the material understandable and interesting to you.
Things are going well. Youngest just started with Laura Moore. Older two sons worked with her. Youngest is rising junior. She’s got a really good rapport with them. They liked working with her as a person. She’s also really knowledgeable about math and science. She’s able to help them with the things they don’t understand. She was a big help with her middle son. Helped him to feel more confident and comfortable. Middle son struggled with academic and virtual learning.
Can’t say enough good things about Laura. We loved the fact that kids can take so many practice SATs/ACTs. Being able to address what each student needs is really valuable. We wouldn’t have gotten as much out of a class. We’ve spent a lot with you, but both older kids received big scholarships so it was worth it. I get asked about test prep often and always mention PrepMatters.
