University of Missouri (Chemistry)
My name is Lorraine S and I have my BS in Chemistry from the University of Missouri. I was a teaching assistant during my senior year of college and really enjoyed it. I love helping students to understand and, if not enjoy, at least respect chemistry for its importance in life. My favorite thing is that moment when the light clicks on and the student gets it. It makes it all worth while.
I am also available for math help. I took many math classes (through Calculus III) in college and was very successful in them. As a chemist, math is the basis for almost everything that we do, making it very important to understand.

We sought assistance one week before our child's final exam. It was our goal to find someone to help with a cumulative geometry review by refreshing a year's worth of information in an extremely short period of time. Not only was Lorraine able to help with the specifics of the review process, but she also taught/re-taught additional, helpful math skills.
Unfortunately, we have had some tutors who were not able to quickly understand the problems and provide clear (or accurate) instruction. Lorraine was extremely knowledgeable. As a result, our child received extensive and thorough assistance in only two sessions, and there was never any time wasted. Most important to us was the fact that she explained as she taught; then watched while our child practiced enough problems to work without major assistance. She never proceeded until she was confident that each concept had been understood and well-practiced.
The final exam results were wonderful; however, the greater, long-term benefits lie in the fact that our child has now more securely grasped some valuable mathematical skills and approaches which will serve as a foundation for future math classes.
Lorraine is fabulous and very knowledgeable in the subject. She is patient and offers many teaching styles to ensure her students understand the subject. I recommended Lorraine, she is worth the time and money.
Our daughter was struggling and frustrated to the point of wanting to give up. After working with Lorraine we saw an immediate change in her confidence level. Her progress was steady and permanent. When she began with Lorraine she was barely passing, on the verge of failing. After working with Lorraine, I am proud to say she finished with a B avg for the year. She is now enrolled in Calculus and maintaining a B/B+ thanks to the foundation provided by Lorraine. I really don't know what we would have done if a friend had not recommended Lorraine to us.
I can say without hesitation that you will not be disappointed if your child works with Lorraine.
Thank You Lorraine.
Lorraine has been tutoring my son in Pre AP Geometry and Chemistry. It has made such a difference in his grades and confidence. I knew immediately she was the perfect tutor for my son. She knows the material and his grades improved instantly. She is outstanding and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Lorraine has been able to decipher confusing Precalculus homework and explain it so my daughter retains the information. She also makes difficult concepts in Chemistry easier to understand. I highly recommend her.
Before I met Lorraine I struggled with algebra and was on my fourth attempt to try and pass it. Lorraine was very enthusiastic, friendly, and broke down every equation and expression in terms that I could understand. I am by no means a math person and she never got frustrated or impatient, even when she would have to explain them over and over.
Because of her great coaching, personality, and teaching style I was able to pull off an A- and I only wish I would have contacted her weeks before or I easily would have got an A in algebra. I cannot express how much I appreciated her help and the tutoring investment was small for what I was able to accomplish; in fact she continues to help my with my current algebra class.
Lorraine, thank you for helping me accomplish what I never thought I could, you are a Rockstar!
I found Lorraine to be a knowledgeable and experienced tutor. She understands people are individuals who learn at their own pace. While assisting with my algebra class; she was patient, took time to work each equation while explaining every step.
One quality I believe students will especially appreciate is her ability to make math seem fun. I never thought it could be possible, but I began to enjoy my first algebra class. Lorraine was patient and encouraging as I learned basic concepts and how to solve equations independently.
Lorraine is kind and has a pleasant personality. I believe she cares about her students and wants them to be successful. I am grateful for her patience and encouragement that helped me to overcome the fear of learning something new.
If you are looking for a tutor who has experience, knowledge, patience, and overall just a nice person; I highly recommend Lorraine, it will be a rewarding experience.
I met with Lorraine about once a week for the last half of my semester of Personality Psychology. She was so helpful and always willing to do whatever she could to help me understand and be successful. She was always very patient with me and would make sure to thoroughly explain any questions I might have. I saw an increase in my grades when I was getting help from Lorraine! I would definitely recommend her!
Excellent knowledge of the college algebra skills I needed, patient and to the point! Easy to find her location and very accessible. Once you give her a try you will want to come back and see her!
Lorraine is a great tutor. Geometry & Chemistry doesn't come easy for my daughter but Lorraine has away of explaining it so that she really understands it. Lorraine is patient and kind. Highly recommend her.
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.
