About Lauren

I recently earned my Master's degree in Marine Biology from Auburn University, where I was a lab teaching assistant for Organismal Biology, Principles of Biology, and Genetics. During that time, I was the most requested and highly evaluated TA since the department started the program in the 1970s. I was also a teaching assistant during my time as an undergraduate at Auburn, graduating in Marine Biology.

I'm have a very laid back style of teaching and scheduling, and have successfully tutored 20+ private students (and taught 1000+ university students) during my time in Auburn. Fortunately, almost all of my students want to come back and will ask me to tutor multiple classes during their college career! A few have even had me tutor them in history and med school classes, simply because my teaching style works so well for them. If you want to tutor with a friend, it's a great way to stay together in a class and I have reduced rates for each student!

My strengths are the sciences (Honors Biology/Honors Organismal Biology/Genetics/Ecology/Marine Systems, etc) and the histories (World History, European History, Modern/Medieval, etc). I've also had five years of French training and am exceptionally well versed in Music Appreciation.

I've also recently tutored Intro to Psychology, as well as Logic, Ethics, and a few other prerequisite type classes. Ask me about any other subjects or classes (especially sciences) and I'll see what I think my own abilities are!

I received an ACT score of 34, a GRE Biology Subject Test score of 830 (90th percentile), graduated undergraduate cum laude with honors, earned a Master's of Science degree, presented my research at multiple scientific conferences, received 20+ scholarships and research grants, received an award for most highly evaluated teaching assistant at Auburn University, and have studied and taught science oversees (Bermuda and the Bahamas).

The most rewarding part of my past has been watching students who once struggled now enter med school, vet school, optometry school, PhDs, and fellowship programs. I'll always be a mentor and friend to those students, and I can't wait to help others! No matter what your level, I know that with a little help and some fun analogies, I can help you reach whatever goal you desire. Send me a message, let me know what you're studying, and I'll talk to you soon!

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.

Biology

I received a GRE Biology Subject Test score of 830 (90th percentile), graduated undergraduate cum laude with honors, earned a Master's of Science degree, presented my research at multiple scientific conferences, received 20+ scholarships and research grants, received an award for most highly evaluated teaching assistant at Auburn University, and have studied and taught science oversees (Bermuda and the Bahamas), especially Biology.

Chess

I have been playing chess continuously since elementary school, and was active member of the community chess club in my home town until leaving for college. I still play on a regular basis with friends and family.

Genetics

I taught Genetics laboratory and lecture at Auburn University for three semesters, and also received an A in undergraduate Genetics and Advanced Molecular Genetics.

Music History

I have successfully tutored Music Appreciation and Music History for over 10 students the past 5 years. Before that, I received A's in undergraduate level Music Appreciation courses and participated in the International Baccalaureate Music Appreciation program.

R

I've earned A's in graduate level "Statistics in R" and "Advanced Analytical Statistics in R for Ecology". I have also recently used R to analyze the data for my Master's thesis and will be publishing data in R in the coming months.

Zoology

I taught organismal and zoological biology laboratory and lecture for 8 semesters at Auburn University. I've also earned A's in undergraduate and graduate level classes in organismal biology, vertebrate biodiversity, animal physiology, and invertebrate zoology.
