About Lauren

Does doing math ever feel like speaking and writing in a foreign language? There are so many new terms and formulas and word problems... but what do they all MEAN?

That's where I come in! Whether you feel totally lost or just need a little extra help, I would love to show you much sense math makes when you hear it in language you can understand.

Here are some of the areas where I can help:
-homework assistance
-test preparation
-catching up on missed lessons
-getting ahead on future lessons
-gaining confidence
-memorization tips
-study tips

A little more about me:
I earned a B.A. from North Central College in both Mathematics and Education. I have an Illinois Initial Secondary Teaching Certificate in Mathematics for grades 6 through 12 with a Middle School endorsement; however, my passion is for private tutoring. I am a part-time math tutor and full-time stay-at-home-mom to my little girl. I enjoy playing board games, watching Star Trek, baking pies, and... of course, doing math.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Finite Math

I'm qualified to tutor Finite Math because I have a B.A. in Mathematics and in Education (North Central College in Naperville, IL). I have done extensive coursework on all of the topics in Finite, such as probability, statistics, set theory, matrices, and calculus.

Great Tutor — My daughter's lessons with Lauren have been great. I love that Lauren gives her the time to figure out the problems on her own, but will notice her spending to much time on a problem and will question what she is thinking. My daughter will at times not want to say what she is thinking in fear of being wrong. My daughter is usually on the right path in what she is thinking, but when she is not Laur ...
