Tulane University (Bioengineering)
Georgia Institute of Technology (Graduate Coursework)
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.

HS: 30/hr Elem/MS: 25/hr College: 35/hr Advanced students cost $5/hr more (ex: algebra in MS is 30/hr, AP in HS is 35/hr) I will consider discounts for groups or multiple hour commitment.
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.
My son has made great progress. He scored 9/10 and 10/10 in his last two Algebra assessments bringing his class grade from a F to a B.
Update: His grade is now an A. He took the Algebra 1 placement exam today and feels like he did well. We won't know the score until the end of April.
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.
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.
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.
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 R. passed a background check on 10/1/12. The check was ordered by Lauren through First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.
After sending a message to Lauren, you will be able to order a new background check for $7.99. As part of your tutor selection process, we encourage you to run updated background checks. Please also review the safety tips for hiring tutors.
