About Laura


Bio

Hi! I'm Laura, and I just graduated from Colorado State with my master's degree in Chemistry. I'm also a graduate of Iowa City High School. My two main areas that I am passionate about are science and math. I've taught classes at CSU for six years (general chemistry lab and recitation and one engineering laser class) and realized that I love teaching. During the time I was at CSU, I also tutored a number of students in chemistry. I love seeing students "get it": go from not knowing what is...

Hi! I'm Laura, and I just graduated from Colorado State with my master's degree in Chemistry. I'm also a graduate of Iowa City High School. My two main areas that I am passionate about are science and math. I've taught classes at CSU for six years (general chemistry lab and recitation and one engineering laser class) and realized that I love teaching. During the time I was at CSU, I also tutored a number of students in chemistry. I love seeing students "get it": go from not knowing what is going on to understanding to having that knowledge and confidence that comes along as well.

I know that science and math are usually not students' most favorite classes in school. And I say that it's okay to feel like that! Part of the thing I love so much about tutoring is helping students to see subjects from a different point of view and at least become comfortable with what they are working on. With tutoring, I set goals upfront with the student (and parents if applicable) and that is always one of my main goals with students who aren't comfortable with their subject area: to at least be more comfortable and confident.

Along with science and math, I also tutor a number of other subjects that are listed here in my profile. If you are interested in working with me for tutoring but you don't see your specific subject of interest on my profile, please still reach out - there is a chance I just haven't added it yet!

Math has played such an important role in my education because science and math are tied so closely together. I enjoy working with students who have a difficult time understanding math and helping them use new strategies to become more comfortable working in this subject. I also really love to work with students who are working on both math and science classes at the same time and helping them understand how the two subjects are so tied together.

I've studied chemistry and science for ten years and am making it my career. I love seeing how the world revolves around chemistry and science in general. I've taught general chemistry labs and recitation courses at Colorado State and so enjoy seeing people come to understand how amazing chemistry is. I so enjoy helping people go further in their science knowledge and understanding.

I'd love to talk to you and see if we can set something up for tutoring! I'm fairly flexible about things - send me a message and we can work out a time. Cheers!
