About Laura

After graduating summa cum laude with an undergraduate degree in history, I am now beginning a Masters/PhD Program in history at the University of Connecticut to further develop my historical research and writing skills. I have a great passion for helping students, which developed during my undergraduate years, especially while working as a Supplemental Instruction Leader (group study session leader) for history. As such, I tutored many college students during my senior year, and upon graduating in May 2014, became the Coordinator of that program, supervising 25-30 tutors each semester.

My passion truly is education, hence my decision to pursue a graduate degree in history with the goal of teaching in the future. It is this love of learning and teaching which I want to share with students through engaging and encouraging lessons to guide students in reaching their greatest potential. It is the exciting research, writing, and historical analysis involved in my graduate field of history that I find both challenging and rewarding, and I want to share with others so they can reach their greatest potential.

My expertise is in research, writing, and editing, after having strongly developed those skills throughout the past several years as history student. I have developed simple step-by-step methods for developing a thesis or argument, writing papers, and editing which I hope to share with others to make writing a stress-free and enjoyable process. I will work with each student to develop individualized goals for each lesson, whether grammar, structure, or writing style to make the time spent together most beneficial.

I also have a great passion for history and the research, writing, and argumentative skills that are involved. Though studying or writing about history can often seem daunting, I have developed simple step-by-step processes to break down large assignments into smaller manageable parts. Given the right tools, history can be an exciting subject and a chance to build many life skills including writing, analysis, and critical thinking in addition to learning about the fascinating people and events of the past.

I encourage anyone interested in writing or history tutoring to contact me with any questions you may have. I am more than happy to talk with you further and look forward to hearing from you!
