University of California, Santa Barbara (Biological Sciences)
My name is Lauren and I moved back to the area after graduating from University of California, Santa Barbara in June 2013 with a Bachelors of Science degree in Biological Sciences. In a few years, I hope to go back to school to earn my Masters in Nursing or attend Physician Assistant school. My favorite subjects in school and to tutor for are science and math classes!
I know how important school is for planning and preparing for the future. I also understand how it can be difficult and frustrating at times! Tutoring is an excellent way to learn a different approach or technique to a subject you are having difficulty with. While taking classes in college, I would tutor my friends and fellow classmates and would explain how I would approach the questions. I love seeing the joy on a student's face when they finally understand a concept that they have had trouble with. I love helping students make school more enjoyable and not so stressful. It should not be a struggle in your life!
I took math classes all four years in high school and loved it so much that I continued to take math classes in college as well! While in high school, I took both the SAT Math subject test and the AP Calculus test. I understand how these tests work and how to do your best on them.
I also took science classes are four years in high school and continued in college when I decided to major in Biological Sciences. I love all types of science and have tutored for biology, anatomy & physiology, and chemistry.

Lauren was very helpful with our daughter in AP calculus. Our daughter was struggling with formulas, concepts and linking the different equations in problem solving. She was having problems with word problems and graphing. Lauren was very patient as far as our daughter's frustrations. She has very good communication skills, in her ability to listen and teach to our daughter's strong points while strengthening her weak points. They got along very well, and she was able to help our daughter understand that she knew more than she thought and to have more confidence in her abilities. Our daughter went from a D in class to getting a B on on her final semester grade with a B+ on her final exam.
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.
