My name is Lauren, and I've just finished up my MS in chemistry at the University of Washington! I love chemistry and science education, and I truly have a passion for teaching (which is why I will be pursuing a teaching certification in the coming year!
Currently I am teaching chemistry at Tacoma Community College, but I am located in the Greenlake area. Please feel free to contact me!
I have 3 years of teaching/tutoring experience with middle school-high school students and 2 year of experience teaching undergraduate general and organic chemistry. I have lots of experience helping people get organized in classes and in education, and I love to help people learn and understand the science concepts that have always excited me!
My main goal is to help students learn to think critically, and to use these critical thinking skills to succeed in every aspect of their education.

For groups of 2 or more students (either a review session or tutoring all on the same subject), I will charge ~$25/person per hour. Email ahead to set this up or get a more discounted rate.
Lauren has been a great chemistry tutor with my daughter. She is very patient and explains things well. Also, she has always been punctual and accommodating with scheduling. I highly recommend her.
My daughter had been struggling to keep up in her Chemistry class, the first few weeks of the semester, and was worried she wasn't going to catch on. Within the first few minutes, Lauren set her at ease with her engaging personality and her enthusiasm for the subject matter. By the time the hour was over, our once-frustrated student had a huge smile on her face. She felt the hour had gone very quickly, and she walked into her quiz the next day with a great deal more confidence. Count us among Lauren's fans! We're looking forward to working with her regularly. (She is a great communicator too; easy to contact via phone and email.)
We signed up with Lauren to help my son grasp some of the tough concepts they are dealing with in 8th grade science - and he is, after just one session - feeling much better about his ability to understand. So far, so good!
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.
I majored in chemistry at the University of Arizona, with a focus on organic chemistry. I tutored organic chemistry in undergraduate, and I took multiple extra organic courses, and I am currently enrolled in my 6th university-level organic chemistry course. I also worked in a lab synthesizing organic molecules (drug targets) for almost three years.
I taught tennis from the age of 13 to the age of 18 at a summer tennis academy in Scottsdale, AZ. I know the fundamentals of the game, as well as techniques to increase the skill level of any student interested in learning the game or polishing their skills on the court.
