About Laura

Greetings! My name is Laura, and I hold a BA in Historic Preservation.

I have a passion for history and reading that has spanned my entire life. As a seasoned tour guide for local museums in Fairfield and Bridgeport, there are essential skills that I have learned in order to best tailor my knowledge to students of all ages. The most important aspect being an imaginative and adaptive story-teller, which I find what makes tutoring history so unique and rewarding.

During my museum tours I understand how some students find the subject not as engaging, which is why I like to try and cover more than simply dates and historical figures. Furthermore since I base my lessons at a public library I like to guide the student through various types of primary sources of the period in focus in order to bring a more well-rounded understanding of the subject.


I have a BA degree steeped in the subject of everything past tense. Most importantly I had to take multiple electives on World, American, and Architectural History in order to fulfill my degree.

As for Architecture, the majority of my studies were dedicated to the evolution of what humanity called home and then some. Topics I am well versed in includes: its history, design and taste throughout various periods, to even how interiors tie into exterior construction. If you need special help with Gothic and Romanesque construction just let me know!

It is my hope that I am able to help your child any way that I can from elementary Social Studies to High School level.

If you have any further question please do not hesitate to contact me through Wyzant!

Thanks,
Laura

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.

Architecture

Firstly, in order to fulfill my undergraduate degree requirements I took multiple classes on architectural history from Ancient to Postmodern. With my school based in Newport, RI I also took weekly field trips with my professors to local mansions and homes of various time periods in order to best understand its construction, design context, and decorative elements.

The summers that I was not in school were spent as a tour guide for various local house museums where I was tasked with teaching groups about the structure's history and period construction.

Finally, my Senior thesis of sixty pages detailed an evolutionary progression of industrial and architectural structures in 19th Century Bridgeport, CT.
