About Laura

I have recently graduated from the Commonwealth Medical College with a Master in Biomedical Science. Previously, I had graduated from the University of Pittsburgh this spring. My degree is in neuroscience with minors in Spanish and chemistry and a concentration in anthropology. I graduated Magna Cum Laude and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa Honors Society.

Throughout the past few years, I have gained much experience in teaching and tutoring. I was an undergraduate teaching assistant for a large introductory biology class for two years in which I held review sessions and tutored individual students. I was also a teaching assistant for a Freshman Programs class in which I acted as a mentor and helped the students get adjusted to the university. In addition, I tutored at a local high school in Pittsburgh for a year. I worked with 9th and 11th graders in algebra and physics. I have also tutored various students in math and science around the Lehigh Valley. I've also been very involved with the American Chemical Society Chapter at Pitt, in which I've done multiple volunteer efforts aimed at teaching local middle school students about chemistry during "Saturday Science" events and helping the Girl Scouts get their science badges.

I really enjoy teaching and tutoring and would love to continue to do so. My strengths for tutoring are math, science and SAT/ACT prep, and I am comfortable tutoring any age. I've worked with children as young as 2 to college students.

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.

ACT Math

I have tutored in algebra and geometry extensively. These are the two subjects most heavily tested on this exam. I also work for a major test prep company in SAT and ACT instruction.

Algebra 1

I've tutored extensively in algebra. I've tutored in a public high school in Pittsburgh. I've also tutored many local student independently in algebra I and II.

Biology

I have a Bachelor's in neuroscience. I also have a Master of Biomedical sciences. Both of these degrees have allowed me to master basic biology. In addition, I was a teaching assistant in an introductory biology class at the University of Pittsburgh for multiple years.

Chemistry

I minored in chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh. I have a strong understanding of chemistry and have tutored multiple high school students in the subject. At Pitt, I also taught Saturday Science Events, in which we taught middle school students about basic chemistry topics in a fun and interactive manner.

SAT Math

I have tutored in algebra and geometry extensively. These are the two subjects most heavily tested on this exam. I also work for a major test prep company in SAT and ACT instruction.
