About Lauren

I've spent the majority of my life as a student and I know the benefits of studying along side an experienced tutor. After years of studying both independently and in study groups, I have mastered different methods of increasing comprehension and retention of difficult subject matters. Test-taking strategies are also a favorite topic of mine.

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interpersonal Communication as well as a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. I've been a Registered Nurse since 2011 and utilize my passion for education daily with my patients as well as with new nurses that I have trained. And yet, I haven't forgotten what it is like to be a high school student, studying for important exams and standardized tests. I remember taking the ACT and not being happy with my science score the first time I took it, even though I was an "A" student in my sciences classes. I worked hard (and with a tutor) to learn new test taking strategies that lead to a higher score (and admission to my first choice college!). These are strategies that I love to teach other people. It's a great feeling to watch someone face a topic they've previously found challenging and see them succeed!

My style is playful and high-energy. I believe the more engaged you are with the material you are learning, the more likely you are to truly absorb it. I'm a big believer in highlighters, colored pens, hand-drawn diagrams, and off-the-wall mnemonic devices. I have used these methods not only to earn top grades myself, but also in my experience leading study groups and individually tutoring high school and adult students.

Science has been a passion of mine since middle school, particularly because I had the privilege of being taught by teachers who truly allowed their students to engage with the material. I do not believe in simple memorization, but prefer to use interactive methods to heighten understanding and retention of complex scientific topics. Biology and Human Anatomy are two of my favorite topics to teach.

The ACT science test is unique because in many ways, it focusses on reading comprehension (being able to interpret graphs, etc) rather than simple knowledge based questions. This is actually great for the student, because with the right test taking strategies, you can be successful regardless of the particular scientific topic.

The ACT reading test can be extremely intimidating to some students, but it doesn't have to be. Your performance on this type of test can be greatly improved by implementing appropriate test taking strategies. I'll walk alongside you as you learn to use these strategies and celebrate with you as you see your scores improve!

Picking a tutor is a big decision! You need to find someone who not only knows the subject matter, but also someone you jive with personally. I'd love to set up a lesson to see if I'm that right person for you!

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 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 graduated Magna Cum Laude from a competitive BSN program.
