Hello! My name is Laurie Brewer, and I am a math lover. I received my BA from the University of Virginia, and then got commissioned in the US Marine Corps. I ended up serving 22 years active and reserve, retiring as a lieutenant colonel.I began teaching 12 years ago, after seeing so many of my children's friends struggling with math. I have a masters degree in education, and I am Nationally Board Certified in Adolescent/Young Adult Mathematics. My passion is to help both advanced and struggling math students reach their full potential. I have found that effort and attitude have a much greater influence on student mastery of math than being "naturally good at math." I expect a lot from students, and I am prepared to give a lot in terms of time, encouragement, and support.I'm married, with 5 grown children, and we've been living in the Queen Creek area since 1999. I enjoy hiking, reading, quilting, watching movies, and hanging out with my family. I'm looking forward to a fantastic year!
