Math is my favorite hobby!! My greatest passion is helping those who might not share my love for numbers to establish the fundamental groundwork needed to fulfill their success.
Although you might not see a pocket protector on me, I am known around my crowd as the "mathematics geek." I studied at Texas A&M in applied Mathematics with a concentration in both Education and Statistics. However, my undergrad work had a minor in Kinesiology and English along with with my Mathematics major. Yes, at one point, I was talking Calculus 3, Non-Euclidean Geometry, Bowling and Children's Literature all at the same time. As you can see, I am diverse and see a well-rounded education as super significant!!
I enjoy sports such as football, basketball and track and field. Obviously, it is more in the "watching" capacity these days. However, you will find me out for a run, in the weight room or hiking / skiing in the mountains in Colorado. I enjoy being around water such as going to the beach or lake or camping in areas around the country.
My career has been two-fold in Education and Business. My outstanding people skills complement my ability to translate complicated math jargon into understandable and manageable concepts. With experience in Engineering Calculus, Pre-Calculus, Pre-AP Statistics, Honors Geometry and Gifted and Talented Secondary, you will find that my comprehensive knowledge and experience is second to none! Having a coach-like mentality, I break the lessons down into individual parts and master them one by one. This allows students to understand the step-by-step process that fits together in the more complex problems. My greatest attributes are ... patience, perseverance, remaining calm in emergencies, and being kindhearted.
Passing your Math Classes is a "Right of Passage" and no one should ever have to "go it alone!" You will enjoy my teaching style that provides a perspective and a game plan to assure you are a Winner in any subject!
I LIKED NOTHING ABOUT WORKING WITH THIS WOMAN!!! DO NOT GET HER AS YOUR TUTOR!!! PICK ANYBODY ELSE!!! I am a senior who has less than a month before graduation. Being so close to my graduation date, I did not want anything to stand in my way of walking that stage so I decided to get some help since I struggled in Calculus. This is when I decided to hire Lora which was a HUGE MISTAKE!!! First off, I sent her my assignments a week in advance and texted letting her know what I needed help with. I also texted her my schedule of when I would be able to meet with her. The first session went ok and I was excited to start a new journey as far as math. After the first session, EVERYTHING WENT DOWNHILL!!! I tried to be as patient as possible but we all have our limits. I would try to set up times to meet and she would always be “busy”. She never worked through problems with me. She just did the assignments herself and sent them to me. I LEARNED LITERALLY NOTHING!! She never respond to my text messages or calls and when she did, it would be two or three weeks later. She would constantly apologize but things stayed the same. My final straw was when I had an AP Mock Exam to correct. I sent it to her on Monday in order for it to be completed two fridays later....the assignment was still not complete. Frustrated( as I should have been), I started texting her back to back with no responses. And when she finally did respond three days later she claimed that “ she was working on them” and that “there are other students ahead of me whose assignments she needs to complete first”. I expressed to her that I was highly upset about the way I was being treated and that I just wanted my assignment and she will not have to worry about me again as a client. At this point she felt that she had “tried her hardest to work with me but at this point she was going to have to block me”. And get this....I HAVE YET TO RECIEVE MY ASSIGNMENT THAT SHE “WORKING ON”, THATS FIVE DAYS LATE!!! My teacher more than likely won’t take it at this point so I have failed a class because of my “tutors” poor choices. Bottom Line: DO NOT GET THIS WOMAN AS YOUR TUTOR!!!! I WARNED YOU!!!
Lora worked magic for me! I could not grasp the concepts we were learning in calculus and she was able to break it down to me in easily understandable explanations. I scored a 63 on my test before Lora and a 104 on my test after 1 tutoring session with her! Magic!! Highly recommend her to anyone struggling in any math class! Especially if you need immediate help say on Wednesday for a test on Friday! That was me! 63 to 104 all because of Lora!
Lora patiently worked with me on my geometry assignment. I've never been more confused regarding proofs but Lora was able to break it down for me in terms that I could understand and now I have a much better grasp of this concept. She was super nice and has a great personality. The online lesson she put together for me was so easy to understand!! Highly recommend Lora as a tutor!!! Duke, 4 lesson with Lora
