Bio

I'm currently a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University in Public Policy and Data Analytics. I have 3 years of experience tutoring Algebra, and additional experience in other teaching settings. I also make a living partially through photography and circus performance. Math was my favorite subject throughout school and I took Calculus for an elective as an undergrad and made an A.

I'm currently a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University in Public Policy and Data Analytics. I have 3 years of experience tutoring Algebra, and additional experience in other teaching settings. I also make a living partially through photography and circus performance. Math was my favorite subject throughout school and I took Calculus for an elective as an undergrad and made an A.

After completing my degrees at the University of Texas at Austin in Photojournalism and Psychology, I went to Brazil and taught English in Rio de Janeiro for 6 months. Although I enjoyed it immensely I decided to return to Texas to be with family and pursue scientific research. I worked in a neuroscience lab for 2 years at UT. Although I absolutely loved learning about the brain, I discovered that the particular kind of research I was involved in was not a good fit for me. I finally found data science, and learned data analysis through an online course, and having been working as a consultant since.

I'm also a circus artist (fire dancer, stilt walker, hula-hooper, juggler, clown, aerial dance/silks), and am available as a performance art or circus coach as well. I have trained in Swing and Lindy hop (and other partner dancing), as well as Samba, and more recently have been delving into partner acrobatics/acro yoga.

If you have any questions or want more specific information about my skills or qualifications, please feel free to send me a message!

Photography

I have a photojournalism degree from the University of Texas. I have been a photographer for 8 years and worked as a photographer for The Daily Texan and Onstage Magazine. I have been shooting weddings professionally for over a year. I am prepared to teach my students all the basics of digital photography and can also teach black & white darkroom (film) processing and printing, but would need an appropriate space.

Patient and relatable!

We used Lara to help my son with Algebra 1. He said she really helped him understand the concepts better and we would definitely recommend Lara! I will certainly be calling back if he gets stuck on another concept.
