About Laura

I'm a Stanford graduate, completing my undergraduate degree in History, and currently pursuing a Masters in Computer Science. For the past year I've taught Stanford undergraduates as a Teaching Assistant (T.A.) for the Stanford Computer Science course CS107, and I have been tutoring students at every level for the past six years with demonstrable success.

My areas of expertise include test prep (in particular for the SAT), Spanish language, writing and literature, and English language, writing and literature. I received a perfect score on both English sections of my SAT (800 Reading, 800 Writing) and have been tutoring other students in the English SAT section for the past five years. During my time at Stanford I've also been a writing tutor for the Structured Liberal Education (SLE) program, a residential Great Books program that teaches incoming freshman how to analyze the Western literary canon. I've been working as a writing tutor through Stanford for several years, gaining experience cultivating sophisticated writing skills in my students, teaching them how to improve their essays and develop their own distinctive voice.

I also have six years of experience in individual math tutoring through the elementary, middle and high school levels (prealgebra, precalculus, calculus, linear algebra) as well as the math portions of the SAT and ACT. I developed a mathematics curriculum for the F4ED program that operates among elementary schools in the Palo Alto area.

I am a native Spanish speaker, born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and have been tutoring beginning and intermediate Spanish for three years.

I look forward to working with you to raise your knowledge, skills and confidence to the next level.

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.

Computer Programming

I am a Master's student in Computer Science at Stanford University. For the past year, I have been a Teaching Assistant for CS107: Principles of Operation Systems, which is the third course in the introductory sequence of computer science, often considered the cut-off course for majors in the field. As a popular T.A. I gained experience explaining complicated concepts about memory management, machine language, the intricacies of C/C++, pointers, and more in clear and accessible language to underclassmen.
