About Laurie

I have ten years' experience as Science Department Chair and Classroom Teacher (Biology, AP Biology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Ethics and Argument, and Anatomy and Physiology). I have written the science curriculum for our school from 5th to 8th grade and the Biology, Biocehmistry, Microbiology, and Ethics Curriculum from 9th to 12th grade.

I also was a graduate teaching assistant for the Microbiology Department at Oregon State University. I have three years microbiology laboratory experience working to characterize two proteins involved in the genetic engineering of plants. I co-authored two review articles for the journal Science regarding computer programs used to analyze DNA/RNA/protein.

My undergraduate degree is in Microbiology with a minor in Chemistry. I completed 1-3 credits short of coursework for a Ph.D. in Microbiology including many courses in Biochemistry and a strong interest and laboratory experience in Microbiology and Biochemistry. I discovered that I love to teach and have been happily doing so in Nevada. Now I would like to retire but want to continue to teach on a part-time basis in my home town, Albany. I believe in hands-on teaching in conjunction with a strong academic foundation. Science should be fun, interesting, and relevant to one's life.

Happy to help you if you are having difficulty or want to learn more than your currently are. Science is a lot of fun! Let me demonstrate your abilities to succeed in science.

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 10 years Biology/AP Biology teaching experience. I completed a degree in Microbiology.

Chemistry

I have an undergraduate minor in Chemistry and have taught high school Chemistry. My graduate work was in microbiology. I have been teaching high school for ten years and was the Science Department chair at my school.

Genetics

I took genetics courses in college, both in undergraduate and graduate school and have taught high school genetics for 10 years as part of the biology, AP biology, microbiology, and biochemistry curricula. I also read genetics journal articles regularly and take students every year to the Future of Genomic Medicine Conference at Scripps in La Jolla, California every year. I love genetics and can explain genetic and genomic concepts well as I have explained them effectively to my students over the years.
