Oklahoma State University (Liberal Studies)
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. Hello,

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 that colleges look at. Thank you so much, Lauryn!
Lauryn made Bria feel comfortable in her first session. She is real excited about continuing her lessons with her. Bria said Lauryn explained everything to where she understands. Bria learned and listened well and she wants Lauryn to continue tutoring her.
Lauryn is an amazing tutor. She has helped improve my daughters confidence in doing math. Lauryn can simplify algebra so that my daughter can understand it. Lauryn is relatable to kids. I would recommend her to other students.
My son would definitely be failing if it weren't for Lauryn. I am so thankful she is always available to help and he feels so much more confident after his lesson. Definitely recommend her!!
Lauryn is a fantastic tutor and she has helped my daughter significantly raise her grade in 9th grade Geometry. She is very flexible and willing to help in any way she can! We would highly recommend her to other students!
13 year old daughter still loves Lauryn after one semester of Algebra is over and a new one has begun. I'm happy with the results.
Lauryn exhibited patience and confidence in my daughter. After our first session, my daughter felt much more confident in her ability to tackle Algebra 2. We look forward to working more with Lauryn and building on my daughter's Math skills.
Lauryn has been a terrific math tutor for my high school daughter during junior and senior year. My daughter doesn't like math but looks forward to her tutoring sessions. Lauryn helps her with memory tricks and tips that my daughter can remember and understand. Lauryn is very reliable and tries very hard to work with your schedule. Lauryn is very dependable and a very patient and sweet young woman. We highly recommend her!
Alex enjoyed his first session with Lauryn. He came home with a much more confident view in how he can improve his ACT scores. He said she was easy to speak with and understand yet challenging
Lauryn is doing a fantastic job tutoring my son for SAT math. She is knowledgeable, reliable, prompt and I highly recommend her!!
For me and my daughter, Lauryn was the perfect fit. We needed a math tutor and we needed someone who "gets it" from the perspective of a "17 year old woman". Thank You Lauryn!!
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.
