Greetings tutor seeker! My name is Laurie and I tutor in math, chemistry, and chemical engineering. I love these subjects and love to help my students understand them. My aim as a tutor is to increase my student's understanding of the material not just to the level of proficiency but to the level of enjoyment. I get to know my students and use that knowledge of their life interests to explain concepts. I work to be a catalyst to their learning process rather than just another robotic drone endlessly citing boring theorems and definitions.
I think of science and math not as subjects but as languages. I work with my students on communicating in these languages rather than just the concepts. For example, when you think of the word, "sun" an image and feel of warmth and brightness comes with the word. I seek to make this connection for the student with the subject matter vocabulary and concepts. Terms like "reaction" and "equation" can have life when they are used in the languages of science and math.
