My daughter has benefited greatly from her sessions with Lori. Before, her biology test scores were in the 70s. After working with Lori, her last test was in the 90s. Lori is very nice and upbeat and is good at explaining difficult concepts. I highly recommend her.
Lori was just what was needed to clarify and focus the subject necessary for passing with high marks. She is an excellent tutor/instructor!
Lori is a very awesome tutor. She's very understanding and also broke things down so I can understand them. She is a very wonderful tutor and when it comes to chemistry, she knows it best. I do recommend this tutor to anyone who needs a flexible, professional tutor.
My daughter feels confident and never seems to dread going for a session. She's motivated to do the assigned homework, and I'm very glad for that.
I has having trouble in general chemistry as I was studying for my DAT. I was getting scores of 13 and 14 on my practice tests but with Lori's help, I got a 20 on the chem section of my actual test. She is very helpful when going through problems and will go out if her way to make sure you understand everything!
My son took a summer chemistry class. It was very fast-paced and proved to be very challenging for him. I reached out to Lori, and she was very accommodating with scheduling sessions. We were able to get something on the calendar with very short notice. I communicated some concerns about my son's learning and retention patterns, and as a teacher, she was able to pick up on any issues and give him pointers in how to overcome them. Lori is a very kind, patient and understanding tutor who made my son feel at ease. I highly recommend her for tutoring.
Lori was great to work with. She traveled 40 minutes to meet with me and she tried to help me with anything she could.
Lori has been instrumental in helping my daughter through GT10 Chemistry. They work well together. My daughter is able to describe the work they're doing at school and Lori is able to explain, reinforce and facilitate practice problems so that the learning really sinks in. Thank you Lori for all of your hard work!!!

Not only is Lori, a bright and capable tutor who knows her material flawlessly, she also knows how to engage her student and explain to them in a holistic way how to improve. My daughter, after her first meeting with Lori said, "I'm so happy that Lori explained the material (from my AP Biology class) in a way that I can understand it." Now that they know each other better, Lori is also able to help my daughter with study skills as well as teaching her things that she was not able to pick up in the classroom. I highly recommend Lori as a tutor.
I am taking AP chemistry this year and it has been difficult. Lori is able to explain information to me in the simplest way for me to understand the material. She is very patient with me during our sessions. I would definitely recommend her to anyone having difficulty with chemistry.
Lori is an excellent tutor. She knows exactly what she's talking about and she's so easy to talk to. I wanted a tutor who lives and breaths anatomy and that is exactly want Lori is. She is so helpful and makes it easier to understand the material that you need to know. She explains everything so well, and gives you advice on different ways to study different information. She has helped me out a lot and I know she can do the same for anyone else.
I had trouble understanding chemistry but with Lori I found it so amusing. I was so glad to work with her. She's so patient, lovely, helpful, and much better than my regular teacher. If you don't understand any concepts which are related to chemistry, don't waste your time and take a chance to work with Lori.
Lori was great when my daughter called me from college saying she no longer had a tutor 3 weeks before finals. Lori was a great find. She called my daughter up set up some study times. My daughter really enjoyed her session with Lori.
Lori is fantastic and is really knowledgeable about genetics. She takes things little baby steps at a time to make sure that you really understand what is happening in this subject. She invests much time and preparation into her sessions. Although this is great, she charges you for her preparation which causes her to be a bit pricey. Extremely helpful though! Great tutor.
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 was incredibly patient working with my son. She was very prepared and it was definitely time (and money) well spent! I highly recommend Lori. She seems to relate very well with children. We will definitely continue to use Lori.
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.
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.
