About Lauren

Since I was a little girl, I loved reading, writing and learning new subjects, particularly those related to the human body. So, I knew a long time ago that I wanted to be a nurse. I was intrigued by anatomy and the wonder of the human body-how it all fit together and how the different systems worked. I was also intrigued by psychology-human behavior and what makes people do the things they do. I love to teach, and, as a nurse, I have a lot of opportunity to educate and inform. I recall in grade school my classmates often would ask me for help with their homework. I enjoyed sitting down and helping them as they learned new subjects, theories and interesting concepts.

I believe that teaching and learning are two sides of the same coin. An ancient proverb states "by teaching, one learns again". That is my motto! I believe that one of life's primary purposes is to learn: about our bodies, about the world we live in and the worlds beyond, and how to be better individuals. We continue to grow and expand our knowledge when we remain open to learning. Teaching and learning are part of the foundation of our society; they are catalysts to human advancement.

One of the greatest experiences that I ever had was attending nursing school, I was thrilled to be entering
the healthcare field! I minored in English and loved it. Yes, grammar, spelling, vocabulary, punctuation... it all comes together to form an amazing and magical symphony that we call speech.... communication. And, whether spoken or written, the ability to communicate with each other is powerful. It is a gift that we often take for granted. I can't imagine what it would be like without it, to not be able to hear or speak. That is what gave me an interest in learning American Sign Language. I found it absolutely fascinating, and so much fun to learn! I continued studying ASL for two years (up to Level 4) because of an incredible teacher. He was a virtual goldmine of information and fluent in the language. His presentation of the material and teaching style kept me hungry for more. I couldn't wait to get to class!

As a teacher, I love to see students who are excited to learn and hungry for knowledge, as I am. As a nurse, I want to LEARN as much as I can about each patient that I care for. By doing that, I am armed with the knowledge and information I need to give them the best care that I possibly can. Part of being a nurse
includes patient education-making sure that they understand discharge and post-surgical instructions, what their medications are and how to take them. The most important thing is prevention, so that hopefully, they will not have to return to the hospital. Often, lifestyle changes need to be made, and patients are encouraged to be active participants in their own care. Health is the new wealth. Without it, even the most simple tasks can be difficult. I am a huge advocate of an active lifestyle.

I have always loved my country and served in the U.S. Navy as a hospital corpsman. I was selected to be class adjutant at corps school. I learned and taught respect, discipline and attention to detail. I was also the drill instructor during recruit training for my company of 80 females, which I led through calisthenics, one-mile runs and marching formation.

While working at a local hospital, I received a commendation for mentoring student nurses during a pilot program called: "Nursing, the Caring Module". I was very excited to participate in this program. It gave me the opportunity to share my love of nursing. Now, my teaching was directly linked to the 'application' of the nursing process - the personal connection between nurse and patient. I wanted the students to not only complete the tasks, but to realize that the tasks revolve around a human being who may be going through a very stressful and frightening experience. No matter how busy we are, as nurses, we should always take a few minutes to pause and connect with patients on a human, individual level.

I have also been a martial arts practitioner and instructor for more than 20 years. My first teacher saw that besides the desire to help others, I had an ability to teach. So, in almost every class, I would be helping the beginners. In time, I noticed that by teaching others, I myself was improving. Over the years, I competed in many tournaments, winning an AAU silver medal at the age of 19, and never looking back. I realize today, that what really put me over the top was TEACHING. I have been with my present teacher for many years and I assist him with adult and children's classes in 2 locations. Needless to say, these classes require me to tap into ALL of my teaching experience and abilities.

One of my most rewarding experiences with teaching has been through my work as Director of Medical Research at Amazing Health, which includes a fitness and alternative health website. The site offers one-on-one coaching & consultation on many topics: weight loss, physical fitness, diet, detox cleansing, fasting and more. I have been consulting with this website for several years. During this time, I have had the opportunity to coach dozens and dozens of people from all over the world. I always like to leave clients with a step-by-step solution that empowers them to reach their goals.

The message is this: Teaching isn't just a bland process of transferring information from one person to another. No. Teaching is changing lives and impacting them in a positive way! I never want to stop teaching or learning. I want to always continue to grow and expand my knowledge. My goal is to help others do the same. I provide easy to understand lessons with practical advice and suggestions on how to improve study habits. I am very excited to help you achieve your goals in education. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule a tutoring session.
