My name is Laura. I recently graduated from Rice University, earning my MS in Bioscience Research and Health Policy. I am also currently interning at the Baylor College of Medicine, advocating for greater awareness about certain tropical diseases. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a teaching certificate for all high school science subjects. I taught Biology and Chemistry in a 5A high school in Leander, TX. I graduated from the UTeach program at UT Austin which gave me four years of teaching experience and training. I am also the second oldest of seven kids so I am pretty much ready to hang out with a student of any age and get them interested in something. Science is fun to me and I think that the students I tutor can't help but feel the excitement I impart when I'm explaining something. I love to use experiments and games to teach a subject as well as digging up good story from the history of old scientists. My students call it "story time with Mrs. Moore". I also have a passion for music and have been in a choir and band ever since elementary school. I am a soprano in my church choir and just finished up four and a half years of marching band for UT as a trumpet player. This meant I got to go to all the football games which I was very happy about because I am also a huge sports fanatic. Hook 'em Horns!
I have played trumpet since I was 10 years ols, including 4 years in the Longhorn Marching Band at the University of Texas. I was one of the 70 out of 200 students who got excepted as a trumpet after rigorous tryouts each of these years. I have also played in their basketball/volleyball band. In high school, I got a one at state on three separate occasions.
