Lori replied on 9/23/2013

I really enjoyed helping Jamie with her genetics work. Her case was a special one. Jaime had less than 24 hours to complete an assignment that she did not understand. There was a three hour time difference between us and I had previous commitments to honor. Luckily, we were able to come up with a plan that allowed us to work together extremely efficiently. Under normal circumstances, I do not charge for my preparation time.

"Lori is great!"

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 1

Lori has helped many students to master algebra calculations. When students need help with their algebra class, the SAT, or a science class, Lori can help by modeling and reinforcing the algebra steps necessary to solve problems. With practice, these algebra steps become "good habits" that consistently produce the correct answers to algebra problems.

Anatomy

Lori studied anatomy in college, earning an A for the semester. As a high school teacher, Lori taught many anatomy units to biology and advanced biology classes. More recently, she has tutored several students in preparation for their college anatomy classes and the anatomy sections of the MCAT.

Biochemistry

Lori studied biochemistry as an undergrad and as a graduate student. She applied her knowledge of biochemistry in the laboratories of Johns Hopkins Medical Institution as a member of the Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology program.

Biology

Lori has been teaching biology for over a decade. She is comfortable teaching biology to both high school and college students. Lori's deep understanding of biology was established through her graduate studies at Johns Hopkins Medical Institution. Her friendly, supportive teaching style was developed while working at the Maryland Science Center and local independent high schools.

Chemistry

Lori has been teaching chemistry for over a decade. She loves helping students to understand chemistry and to perform all the necessary calculations with confidence. She is comfortable teaching chemistry to both high school students and college students. Lori's deep understanding of chemistry was established through her graduate studies at Johns Hopkins Medical Institution. Her friendly, supportive teaching style was developed while working at the Maryland Science Center and local independent high schools.

Elementary Math

Lori has many years of experience helping young students to succeed in math. Because she has studied childhood development, she is aware that many young students need more time for the problem solving centers in the brain to mature. For these students, Lori is able to focus on instilling math habits that lead to successful solving of math problems. That means that students can feel successful in math, even before their brain is ready for a deeper understanding of the concepts.

Elementary Science

Lori has been teaching science for over a decade. She has helped many young students to succeed in their science classes. Lori developed her friendly, supportive teaching style while working at the Maryland Science Center and local schools.

Geometry

Lori has been teaching geometry problem solving for over a decade. When a student needs help with their geometry class or with the geometry problems on the SAT, Lori is able to identify gaps in the student's knowledge and come up with a study plan that strengthens the student's skills. In the case of difficulty in geometry class, Lori is comfortable helping students with their current class work while also addressing knowledge gaps from earlier in the school year.

GRE

Lori has been teaching test preparation strategies since 1994. She taught group classes for a national test preparation company for several years. More recently, she has taught GRE strategies to individuals and to groups of science undergrads from Towson University. She teaches strategies for all sections of the GRE and enjoys helping students to learn and practice the required math content.

MCAT

I have over ten years of experience in test preparation tutoring (SAT, GRE, MCAT). I have four years of full time teaching experience in high school biology and chemistry. I have a masters degree from the Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology (BCMB) program at Johns Hopkins Medical Institution. I love helping students to plan test prep schedules that play to their strengths while also addressing their weaknesses.

Nutrition

Lori studied biochemistry during college and my first year in graduate school. As an advanced biology teacher, she taught how the biochemistry of proteins, fats and carbohydrates related to nutrition and health. Her daughters both have special nutritional needs (due to a milk allergy and Type 1 Diabetes). She completed independent studies in nutrition so that she can better help them with these challenges.

Prealgebra

Lori has many years of experience helping students to meet their goals on the math portion of the SAT. Some students need to go back to prealgebra problems before they can develop more advanced skills. Lori helps these students to develop math habits that allow them to solve prealgebra problems with confidence.

Because Lori has studied childhood development (specifically brain development), she is aware that many prealgebra students need more time for the problem solving centers in the brain to mature. For these students, Lori is able to focus on instilling math habits that lead to successful solving of math problems. That means that students can feel successful in math, even before their brain is ready for a deeper understanding of prealgebra.

Public Speaking

Lori studied public speaking in college and earned an A in the class. She has extensive experience speaking in front of a crowd, including work in college recruiting, presentation of scientific research during graduate school, and presenting talks covering a wide variety of topics to students of all ages. She has guided many clients through the preparation and practice required for the creation and execution of confident, effective presentations.

SAT Math

Lori has been helping students to prepare for the SAT for over a decade. She works with students to review any forgotten math facts (algebra, geometry, arithmetic, interpreting graphs) and she helps students to learn the patterns of how these facts are tested on the SAT. Lori develops an individualized study plan that allows each client to do his or her personal best on the SAT.

SAT Reading

Lori has been teaching SAT reading skills and strategies for over a decade. She specializes in connecting with students, helping them to identify their strengths and weaknesses, and identifying their goals for the SAT. Once goals and areas of weakness are identified, Lori develops a study plan tailored to the particular needs of the student. Using real SAT questions, she works with the student to address any areas of weakness. She also teaches the standardized test strategies that maximize performance on the SAT.

SAT Writing

Lori has been helping students to prepare for the SAT for over a decade. She addresses any areas of weakness (vocabulary, critical reading, writing mechanics) while also teaching students the test taking skills that will allow them to score their personal best on the SAT.

Study Skills

As a teacher at Boys' Latin High School, I had the opportunity to seek the guidance of our learning specialists. After three years of helping students to get organized and stay up to date with my classes, I am ready to help other students with their study skills.
