Bio

Hi, my name is Lauren, and I was a former teacher and tutor with Kaplan Test Prep for three years.

I have an undergraduate degree in chemical engineering, and a master in supply chain management.

Hi, my name is Lauren, and I was a former teacher and tutor with Kaplan Test Prep for three years.

My availability is in Mountain Time. I can offer lower rates for sessions over 1 hour!

I have an undergraduate degree in chemical engineering, and a master in supply chain management.

With Kaplan, I taught SAT classes at Harvard Square and other locations in Boston. I was a private tutor for high school level exams - SAT, ACT and PSAT - as well as elementary and middle school level exams - the SSAT and ISEE. I have over 300 hours of combined teaching and tutoring experience.

I have helped several students raise their SAT scores by over 250 points to break the high 1400's and 1500's. Whether you are working towards a certain goal, or aiming for a perfect score, I am confident that I can help! I am happy to review the basics or to help you get those last few points on the most difficult math problems, reading questions, and writing questions.

I teach all sections of the exams, and I work with grades 4-12 for standardized tests.

How it works:

1-3 sessions

If you are looking for just a few hours of tutoring, most test makers publish free practice tests or exam guides that we can work with.

3+ sessions

For long-term test preparation of more than 3 sessions, we will need a book for homework and practice. I am happy to work with any book you choose. The student must have his or her own copy, and I will buy my own copy as well. If you are looking for recommendations on prep material, I would be happy to research options and to let you know which books I have worked with before.

I can teach other topics including math, engineering, and supply chain, as long as the goal is long-term learning. There should never be an expectation that we will complete homework together during a session or that I will check your answers.

I can help you to prepare for a test, review ungraded examples, or understand a specific concept or formula. I do not accept requests to work through assignments / cases / projects (any graded work) together during a session. Please do not send me your homework. I have an undergraduate degree in chemical engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, and I am also a licensed chemical engineer who has recent teaching experience in engineering subjects. I completed my master's in supply chain management from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. My classes covered flows through a supply chain, forecasting, transportation, and inventory management. While at MIT, I also completed a course on managerial finance at MIT Sloan.

I have over three years of experience in test prep tutoring and was a former tutor at Kaplan. I now work through Wyzant, which offers me more flexibility and allows me to use a greater number of tutoring resources. I took the GRE myself when applying to MIT. While I never tutored the GRE at Kaplan, I have personally studied this test.

first session

Lauren is fantastic, she listens and she’s very patient. I now have confidence that I will pass my class this semester.

Dee, 1 lesson with Lauren

Great Lesson, Thanks

My daughter worked on ACT science problems and found Lauren knowledgeable and organized … she clearly knows her material, thank you.

Carolina, 1 lesson with Lauren

Fantastic tutor!!!

Lauren was very flexible with scheduling, attentive to my daughter during the session, and had a great individual follow-up. Looking forward to the next session!!

Andrea, 2 lessons with Lauren

Act prep

Lauren reviewed all subjects on the act with my Son and provided him with great feed back and useful tips to help him prepare for taking the ACT. She sent him a detailed outline of what was covered along with the tips in writing which is very useful for a kid with ADHD as he would have struggled to remember everything. She also provided him some math problem she wanted him to work on prior to the next lesson

Mary, 2 lessons with Lauren

great tutor

We use Wyzant all the time. Some tutors are ok, some inconsistent, and some like Lauren are great. She is working in th ISEE with our daughter. She enjoys working w her and can't say enough good things

Andy, 19 lessons with Lauren

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Lauren tutored my son for his SSAT test prep for two months. Lauren is knowledgeable and patient and has a calm demeanor that my son really likes. Lauren prepared ahead of each session for materials to cover, and then followed up after session with summary and next steps, which we find really helpful. Highly recommend!
