About Lauryn

Hello,

My name is Lauryn and I am a recent graduate from Oklahoma State University. I graduated with a degree in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in mathematics and psychology - a strange combination, but a fun one. I love math, but, even more importantly, love helping others develop a better understanding of mathematics. Given the right approach and the proper encouragement, I thoroughly believe that anyone can excel in the subject of math and even develop a love for it. As part of my education at Oklahoma State, I took courses that taught me excellent methods of teaching others to understand math. I am a firm believer in the idea that everyone learns in a different way and that there is more than one way to find the correct answer or to understand various mathematical concepts.

Through Wyzant and other tutoring outlets I have had the opportunity to work with a wide range of ages and capabilities. I have worked with students that needed only a little bit of review and students that had zero confidence and no belief in their own capabilities. One of my greatest personal successes through Wyzant was working with a student to prepare for the math portion of the ACT. She had no confidence and would regularly tell me and she failed many of the concepts we were reviewing for the ACT in school. We refreshed her on the big concepts represented on the ACT, got her used to the question format, and got her to a point where she was able to tackle the practice questions all on her own. Six months later I received a text message from her mom - this student was able to get into her college of choice and was the top student in her college math class. The most important part of that story is that I was able to help my student gain confidence and believe in herself, and I would be happy to help your student do the same.

Great Math tutor!

Lauryn has been a fantastic math tutor for my daughter who is a senior. She has been able to really "get" Avery and help her. My daughter has had a number of tutors for math because this is a very weak area for her. Lauryn helped her raise her math ACT score by 6 points! She also helps her understand her math curriculum this year which will be critical to raise her math grade that will be a factor
