ExperienceHi! My name is Lauren and I am an expat living in Perth, originally from California. I have over 5 years experience as a tutor in SAT and ACT prep, english, writing, and biology.
I am especially well versed in SAT prep, including the new changes being implemented in the exam from May 2016. My focus is on explaining the specific quirks and rules of the test, teaching strategies for higher scores, and closing curriculum gaps between Australian and American educations.
I have a experience in tutoring those with learning disabilities and those for whom english is a second language, and approach all of my students with a caring and sensitive attitude. I love to make learning engaging and gratifying, teaching skills that help foster future success instead of just focusing on completion. I also have experience assisting with writing grants, proposals, and other extra-curricular writing tasks. I have scored in the top tier of the SATs, including a perfect score on the writing section. I have also been honored with awards in the fields of Science, English, and Art.
I am also a teacher at the University of Western Australia in Design, as well at the Fremantle Arts Centre in Art.
HobbiesMy interests include appreciating and making art, music, surfing & windsurfing, camping, gardening, anything and everything animal related, and generally seeking adventure!

Lauren has helped my son preparing for his first SAT exam. With her experiences, she gave valuable information and guidance to him since he never had any SAT tests before. My son has got an outstanding result with a perfect score 800 on SAT critical reading, and the total SAT score of 2280 on Critical Reading, Math and Writing. Lauren is very nice, reliable and supportive. She always replied our e-mail and phone messages as soon as possible. Both of my son and I really appreciate her assistance. I truly and strongly recommend her.
Lauren is delightful. Se contacted me hours after my initial contact via the web site. She is very reliable and helpful. My daughter has really been interested in her tuition. I highly recommend her.
