About Lauren

Hi, my name is Lauren and I am a recent Berkeley graduate, where I studied Classics and Art History. With a lifelong love and focused study of English, Art, and History, I'd be happy to help you or your student better understand these topics. I've written countless papers and edited even more - I worked on the editing staff of two publications during my time at Cal, including a position as a managing editor - so it would be my pleasure to work with you on writing and editing your school papers or college essays. Throughout my childhood, I was a voracious reader and I find it extremely rewarding to watch students discover a passion for literature and writing.

My deep love of history extended into my two fields in college. I studied various periods of ancient history, particularly Ancient Roman, as well as Latin language. My focus in Art History revolves around ancient art as well as 18th century European art, but I have an interest in all artistic periods. Additionally, as I have been sewing for ten years, it would be a very enjoyable experience for me to assist you in learning to sew or to improve your skills! I love to see interest in a subject ignited in my students, and my intention is to find a fun and fascinating manner to teach the topics and therefore encourage a lifelong connection with education.

My original plan was to become an English major in college, so I spent all of my high school years intensely focused on improving my grammar, vocabulary, and writing skills. I have read many styles of literature, from scholarly articles to literary classics. As I said above, throughout college I worked on the editing staff of several publications, ranging from Classics essays to political satire. Writing and editing is my passion and I have always found it enjoyable to look for fun tricks to help writing concepts stick in a student's mind.

If you're looking for an upbeat, intelligent, and fun instructor to help you better understand History, English, or Art - I'm your gal! I look forward to hearing from you and encourage you to contact me if there's any questions you have about my teaching style.

Approved subjects

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.

Needlework

After ten years of sewing and costuming, I have researched and experimented with many styles of needlework. I am comfortable with most embroidery stitches and particularly with cross stitch. I enjoy teaching students brand new to needlework by starting with small cross stitch projects, like a bookmark, and with traditional embroidery samplers.

Sewing

I have been sewing for ten years, comprising everything from basic pillowcases to complicated Victorian corsets from scratch. I have extensive experience with both hand and machine sewing (on machines from various years) and with all types of fabrics. Throughout my years of sewing and costuming, I have learned to drape as well as flat pattern and have knowledge of historical clothing styles as well as many historical sewing techniques.
