About Laura

I am a Research Coordinator at Mass General Hospital. I have a BS degree in Biology and a teaching certificate for all high school science subjects. After college, I taught Biology and Chemistry in a large high school in Texas. I also recently graduated from Rice University in Houston, TX, earning my MS in Bioscience Research and Health Policy. I am the second oldest of seven kids so I am pretty much ready to hang out with a student of any age and get them interested in something. Science is fun to me and I think that the students I tutor can't help but feel the excitement I impart when I'm explaining something. I love to use experiments and games to teach a subject as well as digging up good stories from history or current events. I also have a passion for music and have been in a choir and band ever since elementary school. I spent four and a half years in marching band for UT as a trumpet player. This meant I got to go to all the football games which I was very happy about because I am also a huge sports fanatic! I am a Research Coordinator at Mass General Hospital.

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.

Algebra 2

I have tutored in algebra 2 before, and I'm currently a Geometry teacher, which involves a lot of algebra 2.

Chemistry

Taught HS Chemistry.
Took 4 Chemistry/Organic Chemistry courses in college, and several labs.
Chemistry was one of my best subjects on my MCAT.

Trumpet

I have played trumpet since I was 10 years ols, including 4 years in the Longhorn Marching Band at the University of Texas. I was one of the 70 out of 200 students who got excepted as a trumpet after rigorous tryouts each of these years. I have also played in their basketball/volleyball band. In high school, I got a one at state on three separate occasions.
