About Lauren

This will be my 10th year tutoring elementary to high school aged students, varying in subjects from math and science to test preparation and study skills. I am excited to continue my work in the education field.

To give some background on my experience in education, I began as a private tutor 10 years ago and loved helping kids find their own paths to success. This led me to a minor in Education at UC Berkeley followed by graduate program in Education at Mills College. Throughout this time, I was trained in some of the best teaching philosophies and practices and was lucky to experience hundreds of hours of fieldwork in multiple math and science classrooms.

I went on to teach 6th grade science and then returned back to high school to teach Biology and AP Environmental Science. I have recently moved to New Haven and am currently writing science curriculum for Mosa Mack Science Inc., but am also excited to work with students again!

With the education I have gained from these wonderful institutions and the amount of teaching experience I have had, I feel well-qualified to help any student reach their goals. It is my belief that every student has their own unique needs and with the right personalization and support, every student can succeed.

Why Math? Many of my education fieldwork experiences were in Algebra 1 classrooms, supported by incredible undergraduate and graduate coursework specifically in math education.

Why Science? I have taught all of these subjects in my teaching career, so I not only have a firm background in the subject matter, but also prepared and practiced teaching methods to delve into this material.

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson!
