I have a degree in math and have dedicated the last 15 years of my career to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education. I have been a teacher at a middle school and a university.

I am well-versed instructional technique techniques, designed to improve comprehension, confidence and retention. I have provided quality instruction to over a thousand students and have brought STEM enrichment to thousand more over the course of my career.

  • Kevin

    She was easy to correspond with. We event over the elemental concepts of Differential Equations. Also gave me material to work on.

  • Marilyn

    Lara has brought my grandson up to date on 6 weeks of class in just 2 weeks. Very good tutoring techniques.

  • Cayley H.

    Lara is punctual, patient, creative, and determined. Our son is encouraged because he feels like he is finally grasping the logic behind the math, instead of just memorizing how to do a particular type of problem. Wow. That is exciting. I am looking forward to the next math test.
