My love of teaching comes from a passion for the applied sciences. I love seeing the look of understanding on my students' faces when a seemingly incomprehensible topic suddenly makes sense. I have experience tutoring in Chemistry and Algebra through a teaching assistant position at Texas Woman's University.

As I graduated with high honors and a double major, I understand the values of hard work and diligence and have had great success instilling comprehension and application of Chemistry to my students; I have had the immense pleasure of observing students realize their own potentials and overcome obstacles to achieve their goals and improve.

I have experience being a Teaching Assistant through the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry for Texas Woman's University for multiple years. I have taught laboratory classes and tutored for Introduction to General Chemistry, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Quantitative Chemical Analysis, and Physical Chemistry.

I received my B.S.N. and, in the process, have taken and made A's in Biology, Biochemistry, Anatomy and Physiology, Microbiology, and Pathophysiology. I use a variety of teaching methods and have had great success explaining biological concepts and applications to my students.

I earned a Teaching Certificate through the State of Texas, and am licensed to teach Chemistry, Biology, and Physics in all state high schools. When I took the ACT, I scored a perfect score and am more than capable to help with ACT Prep.

In order to challenge (yet not overwhelm) my students, I assign personalized homework for each student after the session as well as periodical quizzes designed to test comprehension and retention of material. This allows me to assess how the student is progressing.

I am more than willing to either travel for sessions or have sessions online. My base rate is $55/hr for in-person sessions and $45/hr for online sessions.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your academic endeavors!

Amazing, Smart, Funny and Knows Just How to Explain Hard Concepts

Laura is phenomenal and I am so thankful that I found her to help me work through Organic Chemistry! After just 1 session, I was able to understand all of the concepts that I was struggling with.

Zoe , 3 lessons with Laura

Professional, clear and useful tutor.

I liked that Laura was personable but also made good use of our time by asking me questions about the problems we were working through and engaging me every step of the way. Her notes are clear too.

Laura V. on Honors Chem.

My first session with Laura was spectacular. Not only did I learn a great deal, but I am much more confident going into my exams. I hoping to continue to work with into the new year.

Paul, 1 lesson with Laura

Great tutoring

Laura taught me about English and grammar, correct sentence structure and reading skills. Previously she helped me shake the rust off my math skills and get prepared for the ACT test.

Scott, 2 lessons with Laura

Excellent ACT prep

Laura is helping my son prep for the ACT. She really has my son engaged. If the practice tests are any real indication of how his next real test will go, it will be amazing!

Mark, 5 lessons with Laura

Great teacher, and dealt with my own ignorance every step of the way

Laura helped me understand concepts I should’ve learned in school, but didn’t and always did her best to help me understand what I was doing.

Max, 1 lesson with Laura

Well prepared and very helpful tutor

AP Chem topics and help with preparation for test. Very knowledgeable and really helpful.

SATISH, 3 lessons with Laura

Great Chem help

Laura broke down and simplified conversions for me. She also went the extra mile and sent me helpful tips that I will definitely use down the line. If you need some help with chem give Laura a buzz and I'm sure you will not be disappointed.

Randolph, 1 lesson with Laura

Fantastic tutor !

Laura is extremely personable and relates well to both adults and students. Very knowledgeable in subject matters plus prep for PSAT,SAT & ACT. Laura is truly a gem, and her advice and assessment of students is helpful and needed when navigating AP stem courses. My daughter is actually looking forward to her coaching sessions with Laura. My daughter feels confidant she understands the work and has strategies to use.
