About Lauren

Hello Wyzant users! Two years ago I graduated summa cum laude from Northeastern University with a BS in biology and a minor in communications and have been consistently tutoring since. I have a very thorough background in tutoring biology and writing and am most effective in tutoring those subject areas. I received a score of 5 on the AP Biology exam in high school, and have tutored many AP biology students who have scored 5s.

In addition to tutoring, I also work as a professional science writer. A big part of my job is being able to translate high level science into layman's terms and interesting stories, and the way that I write translates directly into the style in which I tutor. I try to break down complex information and make it easy to understand by using examples, narratives, and interesting facts that my students are more likely to remember and can utilize in their learning process. When students are interested in what they're learning, and understand the material as a whole unit, it's much easier for them to recall specific information come test time!

Fantastic Tutor

Lauren tutored our daughter (High School Junior) for an upcoming Biology quiz. Our daughter said both sessions with Lauren were great and she felt completely confident going into the quiz today. As a parent, my communication with Lauren was top notch. She was on-time and communicative. We highly recommend Lauren to future highschool AP Bio students.
