About Lauryn

My name is Lauryn H., and I am excited to apply to be a tutor. I am hard working and love to contribute my time through education.
I am a current graduate of Sonoma State University in Geography and Environmental Sciences, and I am currently working towards my master’s degree in environmental science at San Jose State. I am striving to use my environmental education towards education with children. In the past year I have been working with Sonoma County Regional Parks as an Intern. In this position I have learned how to work with children from ages 4-13 and have been able to create lesson plans through programs that bring awareness to climate change, history of native Americans, and how to create a healthy environment by working with the outdoors. I have spent many weeks taking children on field trips through the Sonoma County Parks, and have found that my passion is to educate.

One of my favorite things I have done with this position is using a solar oven to show that there are alternatives to cooking that do not use any unsustainable resources. We would slice apples and bake them for the students to try. Many of the students reported back that this was one of their favorite aspects of the field trips because it empowered them to go home and teach their families about alternative cooking sources.

My goals for being a tutor are to encourage and empower youth and expose them to education. I want to show children that no matter what age, no matter what background they come from that they all have a chance to keep growing and learning.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Botany

I currently study ecology which has extensive botany qualities. I currently am a teaching assistant at San Jose State where I help with students in identifying plants, plant structure and anatomy. I work by introducing regions of plants, Latin names, and then actually bringing in samples, or doing field exercises. I have approximately 4 years of educational experience.

Cooking

I have been cooking for 16 years and love to teach others recipes and what they mean. I currently succeed in cooking vegetarian dishes and desserts. I would love to teach baking as I have taught baking to roommates and family members in the past. I have taken two classes in cooking and I have even gone to a camp to encourage my cooking skills.

Elementary (K-6th)

I currently am a K-8 tutor at a local after school learning academy. I have been reviewed and approved to teach K-8 subjects, I have also been fingerprinted. I have two years experience working with children outdoors, and in a classroom setting. I have led field trips, taught a LEGO engineering course, and currently teach/tutor. I tend to tutor one level ahead of what they are learning. If they are struggling we go through homework thoroughly. I recently helped a student receive an A on a math exam where they were about to fail the entire grade level. I also help with science in every grade level and history as my education is in Geography which helps with world understandings.

Saxophone

I have 7 year of experience with alto-saxophone. I had played throughout high school in marching band and our wind ensemble band. For wind ensemble we had to audition memorizing many songs along with the chromatic scale. I have been a section leader in the past for two years and in this position I taught a group of students how to play alto saxophone, and how to memorize music.

Soccer

I have over 16 years experience with soccer as I have played since I was 6 years old. In high school I was on JV and joined varsity. On varsity we went to CIFS where I felt confidant enough to teach others techniques and skills. I have previously been a referee in soccer and have thoroughly learned the sport. I still play in adult leagues.

Softball

I have played softball for 9 years and have currently co-coached an adult softball league. I can teach drills and specifically I can teach underhand softball pitching and teach catchers the most efficient ways to catch. I am well versed in the game and would love to teach someone some methods.

Writing

I'm a current tutor for English and Math. I have extensive AP knowledge and teaching experience.
