About Lara

I am currently building my photography business while working as a substitute teacher for Klein ISD and as a tutor. Math was my favorite subject throughout school and I even took Calculus in college as an elective and made an A (the GPA boost was quite welcome).

After completing my degrees at the University of Texas at Austin in Photojournalism and Psychology, I went to Brazil and taught English in Rio de Janeiro for 6 months. Although I enjoyed it immensely I decided to return to Texas to be with family and pursue scientific research. I worked in a neuroscience lab for 2 years at UT and although I absolutely loved learning about the brain, I discovered that the particular kind of research I was involved in was not a good fit for me.

I'm also an aerial dancer (silks) and circus artist, and am available as a performance art or dance coach as well. I have trained in Swing and Lindy hop (and other partner dancing), as well as Samba, and more recently have been delving into partner acrobatics/acro yoga.

If you have any questions or want more specific information about my skills or qualifications, please feel free to send me a message!

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 Math

I scored high on the ACT math (I think I scored a 32, but don't remember) and scored a 1290 on the SAT math. I've also taken the GRE and scored well on it.

Adobe Lightroom

I am a wedding photographer and have been using Lightroom to edit my work for over a year.

Algebra 1

I have been a math tutor for about a year and a half. I made A's in math throughout high school and college. I currently have multiple Algebra 1 students.

Algebra 2

I scored a 100% on the Wyzant assessment for Algebra 2. I loved math and made A's all the way through school. I am currently already tutoring multiple high school students in Algebra 2.

Ballroom Dancing

I have been swing dancing for over 8 years. I also learned multiple dance styles (Foxtrot, Salsa, Tango, etc) in a Ballroom dance class at the University of Texas. I performed at professional gigs with the Austin Samba School for 4 years and now currently train as an aerial dancer/circus artist.

Desktop Publishing

I was the Editor-in-Chief of my high school newspaper which required me to oversee the editing and graphic design of the monthly Panther Press. In college I worked for The Daily Texan newspaper and made an A in my graphic design class. As a professional photographer I have created my own website and have made all my own online media, graphics, etc.

Elementary Math

I have been tutoring at a math learning center since December and all the students seem to like me and appreciate my instruction. I've scored 100% on all the middle/high school math assessments on WyzAnt.

Geometry

Math was my best subject in school and I made A's throughout, including in Geometry.

Photography

I have a photojournalism degree from the University of Texas. I have been a photographer for 8 years and worked as a photographer for The Daily Texan and Onstage Magazine. I have been shooting weddings professionally for over a year.

I am prepared to teach my students all the basics of digital photography and can also teach black & white darkroom (film) processing and printing, but would need an appropriate space.

Excellent tutor!

Worked very well with my daughter and helped her to clearly identify mistakes and make the necessary corrections. We saw an immediate impact in the confidence our daughter had with the material. We're already seeing a boost in her class work/quiz grades. Highly recommend!
