About Lauren


Bio

I have been involved in tutor from a young age. During middle school, I would provide extra help to other students in my classes who were struggling to keep up with the material. This continued throughout high school and I gained tutoring experience in a range of subjects including, science, math, writing, and history. I also mentored new members of my debate team by assisting with speech writing and presentations. In college, I went on to study neuroscience and I took all different science...

I have been involved in tutor from a young age. During middle school, I would provide extra help to other students in my classes who were struggling to keep up with the material. This continued throughout high school and I gained tutoring experience in a range of subjects including, science, math, writing, and history. I also mentored new members of my debate team by assisting with speech writing and presentations. In college, I went on to study neuroscience and I took all different science courses in biology, chemistry, and physics. I would often tutor peers in my courses and help them work through the material.

In addition, throughout high school and college, I have tutored in a variety of subjects including, writing, language, science and history. I am experienced teaching students as young as 7, so I am able to make material accessible to any age. I know that teachers can sometimes be tricky, so I work to help my students learn the material in a way that makes sense for them. I want you to do well in your courses, and I also want you to learn and enjoy yourself at the same time. I am currently working in a research lab studying biology and the liver and finding new and exciting ways to develop my science knowledge.
I really enjoy understanding how and why science works the way it does, and I believe that conveying those ideas really helps students master the material.

In addition to my love of science, I also enjoy writing and have experience helping students write literary essays, articles, personal statements, and academic research papers. I am passionate and encouraging about my students gaining the skills necessary to express themselves and their ideas in a way that both feels true to themselves and can be understood by others. If you are struggling to put your idea to paper, or come up with a central point of your argument, I can help you reach those goals.

Don't hesitate to reach out if you are looking for extra support in your classes. I am excited to help you through this process!

Lauren S is the Best!

Lauren is the best tutor ever! She makes you feel completely comfortable within the struggle of learning the advanced subject of Organic Chemistry. Lauren uses easy to understand tricks and explains everything within perfection. 6/5 stars because she deserves extra credit.

Cosette, 2 lessons with Lauren

Knowledgeable and Understanding

Lauren was really helpful explaining the topics in way for me to understand. This allowed me to see the concept in a different perspective and again better grades in my chemistry class. I will definitely be using her as my tutor for future classes.

Abigail, 6 lessons with Lauren

Lauren is amazing!!! I finally get chemistry!

In just one session, I had literally learned the fundamentals of chemistry/math with Lauren that I had completely forgotten about since high school. I was so nervous because I was really struggling with my course but she walked me through it with so much ease and patience. She was so enthusiastic about the material and made me feel so comfortable! I walked out of the session and completed my quiz/hw assignment acing both of them.

Knowledgeable & patient

Anatomy and physiology class has been a struggle for me and she was very helpful & patient with me. Definitely knowledgeable and was able to provide great information. Thank you

Keiondra, 1 lesson with Lauren

She very knowledgeable and concise!

My session with Lauren was my first experience with online tutoring and I must say that it went really well. I had an assignment due the same day and I was confused about how to do APA intext citations and she read my assignment and showed me how to fix the errors. Her explanations were concise and felt confident about turning in my paper. She's awesome and I will definitely book her again in the future.
