Dear students and parents,
My name is Lauren, and I am excited to offer my services as a tutor. I received a Flinn Scholarship and a National Merit Scholarship to attend the University of Arizona and obtain a B.S. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Ecology and Evolution coupled with informal science education and food culture and history are my passions. I have a background in evolutionary genetics, botany, macro-ecology, herpetology (the fantastical study of amphibians and reptiles), tutoring, and science education. I have professionally tutored peers and athletes at a variety of interest and knowledge levels, and I occasionally volunteer as a teacher's aid at a local elementary school. I have taught all ages up to adult and am comfortable with content tutoring as well as study habit development and test preparation.
Regarding my tutoring philosophy, I am dedicated to student success in all areas and practice firm yet relaxed tutoring techniques. I believe that students should first feel comfortable and confident in their own ability to learn, and my ultimate goal is to build this confidence. I understand that not all students learn in the same way and am happy to adapt my strategy to meet specific student needs. I do assign additional work for my students if needed, but nothing that will add over an hour per week to their already busy schedule. I also like to encourage parent involvement as a tool for reinforcing content covered in tutoring sessions.
I look forward to helping you and your student succeed!

Lauren is a great tutor! I am currently taking chemistry 138 and have never taken chemistry before. Currently she is helping me with organic chemistry and not only does she know the material but she breaks down some of the steps so that I can understand it. She is very patient, polite and is always on time. I would defiantly recommend her!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I obtained a 4.0 in physics courses (including labs) taken at the University of Arizona. I have also served professionally as a biology tutor and teaching assistant for over two years. In addition to tutoring, I have two years of experience mentoring college scholar-athletes in study skills and habits.
I have tutored and mentored scholar athletes at the university level for over two years. In addition to this experience I received a 3.98 GPA in undergraduate studies. I believe firm yet constructive feedback is the best way for students to build confidence in their own study abilities. I practice a no-excuses study policy that emphasizes personal accountability.
