About Laura

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 as well as to give me an opportunity 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 $45/hr for sessions and I offer discounted rates for group sessions within the same family.

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

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.

ACT Science

I have been a teaching assistant for the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Texas Woman's University for many years and have had great success mentoring students in the concepts and applications of chemistry.

I studied to become a RN at Texas Woman's University 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.

Algebra 2

I have had experience and great success tutoring Algebra skills through a Teaching Assistant position at Texas Woman's University through the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry as chemistry and math are related.

Biology

I studied to become a RN 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.

Chemistry

MCAT

I feel particularly qualified to tutor for the MCAT as I am incredibly well-versed in all areas of chemistry, biochemistry, and biology, and am approved to tutor those subjects through Wyzant. Having earned my Bachelor's of Nursing degree and taken numerous psychology, anatomy, and sociology courses, I am qualified to tutor in those subjects as well. I have tutored students for the MCAT before and have had great success with my methods.

Organic Chemistry

I have taken both semesters of Organic Chemistry at Texas Woman's University and have been a teaching assistant for the Organic Chemistry laboratory course with great success. I have also been a teaching assistant for Introduction to Organic Chemistry, which is required for Nutrition majors. I have utilized my skills with Organic Chemistry to aid students struggling in Biochemistry and Inorganic Chemistry (I am currently enrolled in Inorganic Chemistry).

She was knowledgeable, kind, and had a great sense of humor! When she left my daughter's words were, "that was the best hour I have ever spent!" Thanks Laura! And, by the way, she made an A on the exam!
