About Me

Hi, I'm Laura!

I have a love of learning and a passion for teaching!

I first became interested in chemistry in high school when I learned a little bit about quantum mechanics and atomic orbitals.

I believe chemistry is exciting and relevant for everyday life, and I hope that my students will also come to appreciate and enjoy chemistry.

I consider myself flexible, easy-going, and patient!

My current hobbies and personal interests include: cooking from scratch, playing bass guitar, watching anime, studying computer science, and practicing foreign languages (Spanish, Japanese, French).

In the future, I would like to study a postgraduate degree and become a university instructor.

Education & Experience

I graduated from the University of Calgary with a First Class Honours degree in Chemistry (cGPA of 4.0/4.0). During my studies, I spent three summers as a student researcher and completed my honour’s thesis in the field of organic chemistry.

After graduating, I went on to work in the US as a Research Scientist in Medicinal Chemistry, where I was able to apply a lot of the knowledge that I learned in school.

I have been tutoring chemistry online now for several years. I tutor general and organic chemistry almost exclusively, but I am open to and interested in tutoring other areas such as analytical chemistry and Spanish.
