I am a Yale Graduate with a focus on tutoring math and science. In addition to tutoring in high school and college, I have been tutoring for over 9 years in New York City.

I enjoy helping students understand math and science. I work with them to understand the patterns and connections between different concepts to help deepen their comprehension and improve their retention. I ask questions and draw parallels to earlier ideas to help them connect new information with the ideas they already know.

I know the formats of the SAT, ACT, and AP tests very well and work hard to demystify these tests so the students feel confident and prepared on test day. I work with students preparing for all sections of the test or individual parts depending on need. We focus on test taking strategies, deconstructing how the test asks questions, and strengthening understanding of the content. For AP tests I make sure we review both the material from class and also the way the test expects students to apply that knowledge.

I look forward to hearing from you about your tutoring needs and coming up with a plan for success.

Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus is one of my favorite topics because it ties together most of the math learned by students prior to calculus and allows deeper understanding of how math functions. It also forms the foundation to allow a deeper exploration of sciences especially physics. My passion for the subject allows me to help students see these connections and use them to form a deeper understanding of how calculus can help strengthen their understanding of how math works. I spend time getting to know each student and their strengths and weakness and use those as building blocks to help them see the connections that calculus makes to earlier subjects.

Great physics tutor

Lauren is very helpful, knowledgeable and accommodating. I highly recommend her. She’s also easy to communicate with and is flexible.

Elena, 13 lessons with Lauren

Great tutor

Lauren has been helping my son with SAT prep for the past two and a half months. My son feels that he is benefiting a lot from the time he spends with her and his prep test scores have been consistently improving. She sends detailed notes to me of the material she is covering in every class and gives me constant updates of what they still need to work on. She is a patient and knowledgeable tutor. Highly recommended.

Gustavo, 53 lessons with Lauren

Patient, kind, knowledgeable tutor.

Lauren was available to tutor my daughter at a moment's notice. She helped her review for her exam and helped her with homework problems that she did not understand. My daughter enjoys it when she can get help from Lauren. She listens and asks questions to find out her weaknesses. We highly recommend!

Regina, 2 lessons with Lauren

My son was very happy with her.

My son wants to continue using her. He was quite happy with her and thought she was knowledgeable. Haven't seen any new test grades so might be amending review :)

Rose, 4 lessons with Lauren

Extremely knowledgeable, great to work with!

Lauren is tutoring my high schooler in AP Calc and AP Environmental. She is extremely helpful, clearly teaches and reinforces concepts. My daughter loves working with Lauren!

Caroline, 27 lessons with Lauren

Great calculus tutor

Lauren was amazing, knowledgeable and patient. She really helped my daughter get through some difficult concepts. She has a calm soothing way. I would use her again in a second

Diane, 3 lessons with Lauren

Great Chemistry Tutor

Lauren came to the rescue with great tutoring for our high school junior cramming for a chemistry test. She knows her subject matter. Our son received a 90 on his exam!

Nancy, 1 lesson with Lauren

Great tutor!

Lauren helped our son finally achieve the SAT score he needed to gain admittance to his #1 college choice! He had previously taken the SAT twice.....prior to the second time, we sent him to a month long weekend training program. It simply wasn't enough to bring his score up to where it needed to be. Lauren was truly the answer we needed! She took great time to assess his strengths and weaknesses so she could utilize their time together effectively. His score improved by 220 points! She's a very patient tutor and has great knowledge about the mechanics of the SAT test. If you're looking for someone to tutor your child on the SAT, Lauren is fabulous and we can't thank her enough!
