About Laurren

Hello, my name is Laurren and I am a recent graduate of Texas A&M University with a B.S. in Geology. In my undergraduate career I spent most of my time as a student at The University of Texas (Hook'em Horns!) before transferring to Texas A&M for better research opportunities in the geology field. At both UT and A&M I tutored intro geology and geography classes which allowed me to gain experience tutoring and teaching college level students. On top of that, my experience putting advance concepts into simpler terms is extensive. Most of my job experience revolves around teaching preschool and elementary aged children science.

I enjoy teaching and tutoring because it's challenging and rewarding at the same time. I love getting to see students succeed in the subjects they were struggling at with my help. I try to take time and evolve my teaching strategies based on the individual student and their learning style. Not only does this make the subject easier to grasp on their side, but it also allows be to become a more versatile teacher in the future!

I have taken the basic geology classes in multiple ways in my collegiate career. Those classes include, but aren't limited to: Intro to Geoscience, Historical Geology, Intro to Geography, and Teaching Earth and Space Science. Taking all these different types of basic geology classes allows me to have a firm grasp on what I am teaching to others. Those classes, along with other upper level geology classes, have given me the knowledge and tools I need to succeed at a tutor and teacher.

My current job right now is centered around the TEKS of K-12 students. We mostly focus on the common core subject of science and I am trained thoroughly on TEKS and the STAAR test for elementary aged students.

I have been a facilitator for elementary school children throughout college. I was a teacher to 5th graders for specific physical science lessons. I have designed and taught lesson plans for grades K-12 in multiple settings, both in my job and in my college career. Currently I work with elementary schools and homeschool groups to teach them about Earth, Environmental and Space science.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any more questions or would like to know more about a specific background of mine. If you are in need of a last minute Geology tutor before a test or just need someone to reteach a subject for you, I'm more than happy to help!
