About Lara

I am a first year dental student at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience from Muhlenberg College. At Muhlenberg I was nominated by faculty to be part of our excellent peer tutoring program. I was actively involved as a biology peer tutor from January 2014 to May 2017. 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 worked to improve the tutoring program by strategizing the best ways through which to tutor. As a head tutor, I also served as a resource and mentor to the peer tutors.

As a peer tutor at Muhlenberg, I attended (and presented) workshops to train tutors and achieved level III CRLA (College Reading & Learning Association) certification as a peer tutor. This indicates that I underwent at least 30 hours of training and tutored for at least 75 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 also was a biology lab assistant January 2015 through December 2016. I achieved A’s in Principles of Biology I, II, and III, Biochemistry, and Organic Chemistry I and an A+ in Organic Chemistry II and Microbiology 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.
