ExperienceAs a senior in high school, I tutored Middle School kids in Math and English. I have an older sister, younger sister, and younger brother, so I am used to being around kids of all ages. I enjoy working with kids, and helping them understand problems. Overcoming academic roadblocks can be fun, and it is rewarding to empower kids with the skills to be successful.
I attended a very rigorous Prep School that enabled me to do well academically in college. In high school, I took and passed the following AP exams and courses:
AP US History - 5
AP Chemistry - 4
AP Calculus AB - 4
AP Economics -Micro/Macro -4/4
AP French Language - 3
In addition, I received an 11 on the SAT 1 essay, 750 on the Math Section, and 750 on the Verbal Section.
In college, I received all As in General Chemistry & Lab, Biology, Math, Western Civilization, Environmental Studies, and Writing, as well as many of my Organic Chemistry and Physics prerequisites.
HobbiesWhen not studying for school as an undergrad, I was doing community service for Adventures in Caring at Cottage Hospital or riding my horse. Adventures in Caring is the "Raggedy Ann" program, where volunteers dress as a Raggedy Ann doll, and visit with those who are critically ill and/or recovering in the hospital. I kept my horse at a local stable in Santa Barbara, and ride 5-6 days per week. I regularly compete at the national and international level, although this fall I am taking a break from showing due to the intensity of my course schedule. I enjoy working with kids, and hope that I can help you!

Laura was better than we could have hoped for in a tutor. Laura always kept us informed on when we could get together as my daughter's schedule is constantly changing. Laura was outstanding in tutoring Chemistry and was an excellent role model for my daughter. I wish Laura was available next year to tutor in Physics. My daughter says she is going to miss her so much!
