Bio

I work primarily with college and graduate students to conquer your writing and research projects, from short essays to dissertations and grant applications (and everything in between).

Hello! I am Dr. Lauren, an academic writing and research coach. I work primarily with college and graduate students to conquer your writing and research projects, from short essays to dissertations and grant applications (and everything in between). I hold a PhD in sociology and taught at Penn State U. for 10 years, with an extensive research and publishing record and a history of working closely with students on their writing assignments.

I have taught hundreds of students as a professor, and I know that many students have great ideas but struggle to get them down on paper clearly. My philosophy now is the same as it has always been: I do not just help you get an A+ on that assignment, I teach you the tools you need to earn an A+ on your own in the future, again and again. I am also an excellent proofreader and can spot a grammatical error from a mile away--and explain to you how to fix it.

College and high school students, I can help you to: Write an essay; Plan, outline, and write a research paper; Organize your citations; Understand course material; Craft submissions for online discussions; Design a class presentation; Craft an academic scholarship application; and Write a college application.

Graduate students, I can help you to: Write, edit, and proofread a thesis/dissertation; Apply for a grant or scholarship; Craft a conference presentation; Prepare a journal article submission; Design a qualitative research study and analyze findings; Write an academic job application letter and CV; and Write a graduate school application.
I provide course assistance in these subjects: Sociology, Qualitative Research Methods, Women/Gender Studies, Racial/Ethnic Studies, Urban Studies, Social Work, Public Policy, Criminal Justice, Psychology, History, Political Science, and selected Humanities and Business courses. Students applying to college or graduate school: personal statements/statements of purpose are a particular specialty of mine.

A great knowledgeable, responsible and patient tutor

Dr. Lauren J taught me about doing research and writing a paper. She is a very knowledgeable and responsible tutor, and with my little experience she is very patient teaching me start from scratch. I highly recommend her!

Very knowledgable tutor

Dr. Lauren spent quite a time with me before and in the class for the projects that I'm working on. She is very knowledgable and provided me with many suggestions.

Incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and patient.

Dr. Lauren has helped me so much with understanding and creating a framework for me to work with. I have struggled with one class in particular that felt out of my capability and the content was honestly too boring for me to be able to understand in a meaningful way. Dr. Lauren explained it patiently in a way that I could understand and will help me going forward with how to tackle seemingly unmanageable tasks!

Dr. Lauren J is awesome!

Even though it was just one short session, Dr. Lauren J was attentive and patient with me. She was very good at listening and then giving feedback. Overall, a great experience. I highly recommend for academic help, especially with PhD stuff. We will most likely be having another session in the near future.

Sociology paper tutoring

We did a sociology paper for my final summer school work. It was really great and the teacher is supportive throughout the process. I am confident that I will get an A in the end.

Kevin, 7 lessons with Dr. Lauren

Excellent!

Dr. Lauren was excellent! She guided me through all details of my assignments; she checked the syllabus from my class and the professor's comments to ensure that we followed the instructions. She helped me organize my thoughts and develop a strategy on what steps to take to make my writing more effective. During the sessions with Dr. Lauren, I felt like I was working with my best friend. I highly recommend Dr. Lauren to everyone!

I recommend Dr. Lauren to help you.

She is patient and has excellent feedback with Design Search. Dr. Lauren helps me analyze some advertisements and work on an academic paper to present in my Ph.D. applications. She is a good listener and has important opinions.
