I am a credentialed chemistry teacher with significant one-on-one tutoring experience. I graduated summa cum laude from Brigham Young University with a B.S. in Chemistry Education. I spent four years not just studying chemistry, but specifically HOW to teach it. Following graduation, I taught chemistry and math for four years at High Tech High International, a project based learning public charter school in San Diego. I am now taking some time off to be a stay-at-home mom to my four young children, but I miss working with chemistry students.
As an undergraduate, I worked as a teaching assistant for several college chemistry courses and was awarded "Teaching Assistant of the Year" twice for my work. I was also hired by Nebo School District in Springville, Utah to start an after school science tutoring program for high school students. I am creative and energetic about making chemistry accessible to all levels of students. I am also young, fun, and good at making students feel comfortable around me. Please contact me if you are struggling at all in your chemistry class. I can help!
A Remarkable Tutor
Laura is a blessing. My son has had two sessions with Laura. I expect there will be many more. Laura is tutoring my son in AP Chemistry and we, the whole family (yes, really) is thankful and happier. Maintaining a good grade was causing him stress and he was dedicating much more time to chemistry as compared to his other classes. Their first session was right after my son had taken the SAT-Prep. He wanted to relax at home. Instead, I had made an appointment to have a tutoring lesson. The fact that right after the lesson my son was telling me that he would like to meet with Laura again is a strong and compelling affirmation of what an excellent tutor Laura is. She is kind and has a good sense of humor. Her knowledge and command of the subject matter is eveident and more importantly, she explains it well. We strongly recommend Laura!D, 10 lessons with Laura
Laura has been helping me with college chemistry and for the first time, I am truly understanding the course! She is patient when I don't understand something and has great tips and tricks to remembering concepts and methods.Addie, 6 lessons with Laura
My daughter was so excited after her first session with Laura. Lights were going on all over the place and she is back on track and feeling confident again. Thank you!Julie, 4 lessons with Laura
Makes chemistry understandable
I am a somewhat older student and up to this point, chemistry has been quite intimidating. I met with Laura for an hour and a half and I feel I understand much more than I have in the first six weeks of this semester. Laura patiently explains the concepts behind what the textbook is telling you, and translates everything into understandable language. I wish I had found her earlier!Vikki, 4 lessons with Laura
Laura is an incredible Tutor! My daughter, Ireland, absolutely wishes that Laura was her High School Algebra II and AP Chemistry teacher. She is smart, patient, and encouraging. But most of all, she knows the material and with great efficiency teaches it!Loretta, 21 lessons with Laura
The best tutor!
Laura helped me over the summer for a chemistry class. The class was not easy and very fast paced but with her patience and fun learning techniques I was able to receive an A no problem. I highly recommend anyone looking to really understand chemistry and get a good grade to contact her. She's very flexible with meeting and very easy to get a hold of.Brianne, 4 lessons with Laura
Great job at breaking everything down and explaining everything to me! She makes it a lot easier to learn the material and figure out the formulas and equations.John, 20 lessons with Laura
