I'm Lauren and I studied Chemistry with Medicinal Chemistry followed by a PhD in Chemistry at university. I can offer tutoring in Chemistry and Biology for all levels. I'm from Scotland and found myself in New Zealand at the beginning of the year when covid hit and decided to stay here in this beautiful country. I have a lot of experience working with students of all levels at university and have recently started tutoring school level. I enjoy being able to help students reach their full potential and as well as my background in Chemistry I also work as a circus performer and teacher, which has given me a lot of experience as a mentor and communicator.
