About Lauren

My family and (husband and 18-month old daughter) I are recent transplants out of sunny South Florida to coastal NC. I grew up on the coast and cannot seem to pull myself away from the ocean, as it was the sole inspiration for my academic studies. I did however, take a leap and attend a small private university in the middle of Nebraska: Concordia University, where I double-majored in Geography & Biology (minored in history). I have recently completed graduate school with an M.Ed in Curriculum & Instruction with a focus on Environmental Studies. I am passionate about most every subject related to the environment and favor scientific subjects such as Biology, Ecology, and Oceanography. However, human studies are just as important and interesting and I am well-versed in these topics as well. I have a toddler with whom I currently stay at home with to provide initial education for her until she is ready for school. I am teaching a few courses online at nights, which allows me to be extremely flexible with tutoring and availability. I am extremely passionate about education especially topics concerning the environment and world around us. I would love to pass on as much knowledge and assistance as possible!

I have a major in both biology and environmental studies and have collectively dedicated 8 years of schooling to the subject, focusing on more the environmental side rather than medical biology, although I have extensive coursework in both. I made environmental science the focus of my M.Ed degree and consider myself an expert in various environmental science/biology sub-areas such as ecology, zoology, field studies, geology, earth sciences, oceanography, meteorology, and marine studies as well.

History was my minor for my undergraduate degree, I have always been extremely passionate about history of all kinds all over the world as it heavily relates to geography and humanity studies, which was my major during my undergrad. I consider myself an expert in the subject of geography, both physical and human. I have 8 years of schooling in the subject collectively and believe it is a subject that everyone needs to learn about to better understand the world we are a part of.

I am looking to gain one-on-one tutor experience with those students who are enthusiastic about putting forth effort to in turn receive encouragement and broader perspectives on the subject material and studies. I hope to positively motivate students and create an enjoyable learning environment as well as inspire them to find aspects to relate to and motivate them no matter what the subject of study causing them difficulty! I am extremely flexible and available!

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.

Social Studies

I am qualified to teach social studies due to my Major being in Geography and having a minor in history. Coursework included in my experience is Human Geography, World Religions, U.S. and World Government, U.S. History, History of Europe, and History of Asia. I am extremely well-versed in all aspects of social studies and feel confident that I can teach/tutor students of any age group on the subject material whether it be focused more on economics and government or on human history and geography. I have also recently completed an M.Ed. in curriculum and instruction with focuses on Social & Environmental Studies, including courses on subjects such as population and human effects on social aspects such as culture, religion, economy, government, and global environment.
