All of Laura’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Laura’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Genetics

I've taken several courses in genetics, both as an undergraduate and graduate student. In addition, I have a variety of lab experience in the field. As an undergraduate, I worked with a microbiologist studying the effects of gene deletion on biofilm formation (my duties included restriction digests, ligations, PCR, etc.). My current work has me reading primary source data on gene knockout/down/in projects, working with said knockout/down/in mice, as well as performing various molecular biological and genetic techniques (e.g. qPCR).

Organic Chemistry

I've been tutoring Organic Chemistry I and II since I was an undergraduate (beginning in the fall of 2007) until the present time. In that period, I developed my own curriculum, began my own review classes, and created my own materials (e.g. problem sets, practice exams, and so on). All in all, I've worked with hundreds of students at Binghamton University (SUNY), Cornell University, and most recently at UMass Boston. If requested, I'd be happy to submit examples of the materials I've developed and/or contact information of prior students.

Pharmacology

I have a wide variety of experience in multiple areas of pharmacology. Post-undergraduate, I worked for almost two years as a behavioral neuroscience lab technician in a lab studying the ontogenetic effects of ethanol. Through that work, I became adept at behavioral pharmacology and the various lab practices surrounding its application (e.g. dose/response curves, drug effects, interactions, opioid receptor functioning). I am currently in a Neuroscience doctoral program at Tufts University Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences and am focusing on work regarding GABA receptors, drug targets on said receptors, etc.

Approved Subjects

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
