About Laura

Over the course of receiving my Master's and PhD in Biology, I have become familiar, and have experienced, the rigors of biological science classes. Material can be complicated and over time can be overwhelming - but I want to help!

During my tenure as a teaching assistant for college-level biology classes, I created and presented differentiated instructional materials to maximize positive learning outcomes. As a tutor, my goal is to identify the most effective learning strategies for students and create additional materials to target individual learning styles.

I am able to teach both high-school and college-level biology classes including: introductory biology subjects (including AP and IB high school courses), cell biology, molecular biology, microbiology, and SAT Biology subject tests.

My hope is that I can help students overcome the discouragement and frustration that so often is a part of high school and college-level biology coursework. I look forward to working with you!

**update: Because of my work schedule, I am only able to work with students on the weekends. I am also available for online tutoring.**

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.

Biology

I have a Masters and PhD in biology, and have over one year of teaching experience (as a teaching assistant) at a college-level. As a tutor, I require information about the class prior to meeting to prepare for the session and also to ensure I teach specifically to the class material. I also like to prepare additional exercises for students that target their preferred learning style.

Microbiology

I have tutored one-on-one and was a teaching assistant for medical microbiology at the University of Texas at Austin for three semesters. I have both lectured large student audiences (100+ students) and led small discussion groups on subjects in microbiology. In addition, I was nominated for a teaching award as a result of my TA work for microbiology.
