About Laura


Bio

Hi, I'm Laura! I graduated summa cum laude with honors with a bachelor's degree in Biomedical Engineering. I started tutoring about 8 years ago while I was in college and I developed a passion for helping students enjoy subjects in which they had previously struggled. In order to do this, I have a wholistic approach to tutoring, in which I identify the root cause of the learning struggle. Oftentimes, I find fear and anxiety play a major role, as those emotions inhibit both ability to think...

Hi, I'm Laura! I graduated summa cum laude with honors with a bachelor's degree in Biomedical Engineering. I started tutoring about 8 years ago while I was in college and I developed a passion for helping students enjoy subjects in which they had previously struggled. In order to do this, I have a wholistic approach to tutoring, in which I identify the root cause of the learning struggle. Oftentimes, I find fear and anxiety play a major role, as those emotions inhibit both ability to think and the desire to learn. As I tutor, I ask a lot of questions, to discern each students unique roadblocks and then tailor each lesson and each explanation to maximize learning. My students find they understand the subject better and feel they actually enjoy the subject for the first time!

I have 8 years of experience tutoring, including 3 years at my university. I tutored physics, chemistry, calculus, and dynamics in both one-on-one settings and also taught physics supplemental instruction sessions with 10-20 students. I have done private tutoring for the last 5 years in one-on-one settings with university students in introductory math and computer science, as well high school and middle school students in a variety of math classes. I have also taught high school algebra at a school for refugees.

I tutor most STEM subjects for middle school - college. My specialties are math up through calculus 1 and physics, but also tutor chemistry, computer science, and dynamics.

Send me a message to schedule your first session. I would love to help you excel and build confidence!
