About Lauren

I am a graduate from Tulane University, with double majors in Biomedical Engineering and Neuroscience. I also completed graduate coursework at Georgia Tech, where I was a TA for a problem solving class as well as two senior design classes. For the past five years I have been teaching and tutoring math and science. I have worked primarily with high school students, although I have some experience with college students and have taught biology, chemistry, anatomy, physics, calculus, precalculus, geometry, and all levels of algebra, to name a few.

Through high school, I earned all A's and graduated with a higher than 4.0 G.P.A. I took all the higher math classes, through AP Calculus BC, and would feel confident teaching any high school math classes.

In college, I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a 3.7 G.P.A. As an engineer, I was required to take a refresher course in Calc I/II (recommended to incoming freshmen), Calc III, and Differential Equations. I also took two classes in Statistics, including how to use Excel to perform statistical calculations.

Since I have background in biosciences as well, I could also tutor biology, psychology, and related areas.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Differential Equations

I was required to take differential equations for my engineering major and received an A. Further, engineering is all about differential equations, and I had to use the material many times throughout my education both as an undergraduate, and then again in my graduate coursework. I feel very confident tutoring anyone else who is having troubles with differential equations.

Electrical Engineering

My undergraduate degree is in Biomedical Engineering, which is an interdisciplinary field including elements of Electrical Engineering. In the graduate level classes I took at Georgia Tech, I was focused on Neuroengineering, which is a subspecialty of Biomedical Engineering which relies heavily on Electrical Engineering and Bioelectricity. I have taken classes in Circuits, Bioelectronics, Bioelectricity, Digital Signal Processing, and Digital Controls. My Bioelectronics class focused primarily on op-amps and included a circuitry lab, and I also took a Hybrid Neural Microsystems lab course which made use of function generators, oscilloscopes, and several types of electrodes, and required extensive programming in MATLAB and Simulink. I also worked for a time in several various Electrical Engineering labs, some more Bioengineering, and others focused on traditional Electrical Engineering.

Logic

In college, I took a course in Symbolic Logic, offered as both a Math and Philosophy course. I easily earned an A in the class, and often helped other students in my class. The course did not even count as credit toward my degree in Engineering, but I took it for pure fun, and found it was one of the most enjoyable classes I took in college.

Lauren is good at helping me stay on track and move through the material at a steady pace — I like that Lauren pushes me to get the work done. I have LD and I'm challenged more than other students so I appreciate someone who encourages me to stay focused and who is patient enough to repeat themselves until I understand a concept. ...
