About Lauren

I started teaching about 7 years ago, with horseback riding lessons. I taught everyone from 3-year-olds to 50 year olds, and figured out how to present information to all levels of riders. Around that time I started tutoring, too; I tutored a 6th grader in all her school subjects. Since then I've kept teaching riding lessons whenever I can, and I've tutored while in college both as a job and as a friend helping out. I love learning, and it's great to see someone else learn, from the opposite point of view. To be the one helping someone else understand a concept, or work toward a goal, and perfect a skill is a ton of fun for me.

I've taken plenty of algebra and calculus classes to be strong in those subjects, but I think I have a particular strength in this area because of all the science courses I've taken that apply the math. Application gives a better understanding of mathematical concepts, as well as more practice!

I have a bachelor's degree in chemistry, so of course I've been through plenty of classwork in the subject. But the qualification to tutor in particular comes from my tutoring over the years, which has kept me sharp in the fundamental concepts and how to teach those concepts to those who have never been introduced to them.

I love to help students learn! I can work at the student's pace, whatever that might be, and I make a point to understand what individuals need help with specifically. Even if I'm strong in math and science now, it took time for me to understand how to learn these things, so I'm particularly good at understanding the way a student is struggling with a concept; along with that, I know very useful study skills and skills to help learn in class that will have a huge impact on success.

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.

Elementary Math

I've tutored in many different levels of math, from middle school classes all the way through college-level calculus classes, which almost always require refreshers on concepts introduced in middle school.

Lauren is great

Lauren is really helpful. She is very knowledgeable about science in math, a great communicator and was willing to accommodate us on a very short notice when my son needed to meet with her urgently. We highly recommend her.
