About Lara

I am a senior Neuroscience major, English minor at Muhlenberg College. I am pre-dental and plan on specializing in pediatric dentistry after dental school. At Muhlenberg I was nominated by faculty to be part of our excellent peer tutoring program. I have been actively involved as a biology peer tutor since January of 2014. In August of 2014 I applied and was accepted to be a head tutor. As a head tutor, I develop and present workshops to train tutors for Muhlenberg’s peer tutoring program. With the select group of about ten head tutors, I work to improve the tutoring program by strategizing the best ways through which to tutor. As a head tutor, I also serve as a resource and mentor to the peer tutors.

As a peer tutor at Muhlenberg, I have attended (and have presented) workshops to train tutors and have achieved level II CRLA (College Reading & Learning Association) certification as a peer tutor. This indicates that I have undergone at least 20 hours of training and have tutored for at least 50 hours. I am patient and quick to think of creative ways to work with the material to make it interesting. I also have a lot of experience in helping my tutees improve in their subjects and reach their learning goals.

I have been a biology lab assistant since January of 2015. I achieved A’s in Principles of Biology I, II, and III, Biochemistry, and Organic Chemistry I and an A+ in Organic Chemistry II at Muhlenberg College. I also scored in the 90th percentile for Total Science on the DAT (which includes Biology, General Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry).

If you have any questions or would like to talk with me about how I plan to help you achieve your tutoring goals, please contact me! I look forward to meeting you and working with you.

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.

Dentistry

I am qualified to tutor in dentistry because I scored between the 90th and 98th percentile on all sections of the DAT. My scores are as follows: 20 Total Science (22 Biology, 20 Organic Chemistry, 19 General Chemistry), 21 Academic Average, 20 Perceptual Ability Test, 19 Quantitative Reasoning, 23 Reading Comprehension. I have been a peer tutor with Muhlenberg’s peer tutoring program since January of 2014 and have over fifty hours of tutoring experience, so I am confident that my knowledge of the material, as well as my experience tutoring would make me an excellent DAT tutor.

Organic Chemistry

I am qualified to tutor in Organic Chemistry because I achieved an A in Organic Chemistry I and an A+ in Organic Chemistry II at Muhlenberg College. I have been a peer tutor with Muhlenberg's peer tutoring program since January of 2014 and have over fifty hours of tutoring experience. I am confident that my knowledge of the material, as well as my experience tutoring would make me an excellent Organic Chemistry tutor.
