About Lauren


Bio

Hello! I have always had an affinity for science, math, and teaching. I recently moved to Twin Falls from Pennsylvania, where I completed my P.h.D. at Penn State in Soil Science. During my doctoral program, I taught or TA'd five different college level science courses. I have tutored junior high and high school students in chemistry, calculus, pre-algebra, algebra, and algebra II.

Hello! I have always had an affinity for science, math, and teaching. I recently moved to Twin Falls from Pennsylvania, where I completed my P.h.D. at Penn State in Soil Science. During my doctoral program, I taught or TA'd five different college level science courses. I have tutored junior high and high school students in chemistry, calculus, pre-algebra, algebra, and algebra II.

I have taken many courses in chemistry, physics, math, statistics, and earth sciences as part of my course-work and excelled in them. I have been involved in scientific research for the last ten years, where I have had the opportunity to apply my knowledge of scientific and mathematic principles.

I take teaching to be a very serious matter- not that I don’t like to have fun, or that I don’t have a sense of humor- but that I take responsibility for potentially impacting a person’s future.

The structure of my lessons may vary slightly from student to student or week to week, but it is typically as follows (for students with recurring, weekly tutoring sessions). I prepare a review/refresher of materials learned in class that week (5-10 minutes). I ask the student to discuss what they find difficult in the material covered. I ask the student basic questions on the material covered in order to fully assess their understanding of the material (10-20mins). We spend the remaining time of the session (30-40mins) working on practice problems that I determined to be most difficult for the student. We discuss strategies for problem solving and methods to avoid common mistakes and pitfalls.

Let me know if I can answer any questions for you. I hope to hear from you soon!

Good session.

My daughter indicated that she thought the session was very productive. She said that the subject matter was explained in way that she understood it.

Just plain AWESOME!

After many weeks of struggle, my 10th grader finally told me she wanted a tutor. After a very well prepared 2 hour session with Lauren, my daughter is understanding chemistry!! She is confident in taking her next test. We look forward to working further with Lauren!
