I have a Virginia State teaching license and a TEFL Certification. I have been teaching English for 6 years- 1 year abroad with small groups of adult students, 4 years in the classroom with adult students, and 1 year in the classroom with middle school-aged children. I am able to adapt my lessons to fit your needs and personality.
I enjoy connecting with people and working with them to meet their English goals.
studying English for an adult is not easy, but when you have a teacher who with patience, dedication and love can teach you, it makes you feel so comfortable, like drinking coffee in the morning, lucky to be your student, recommended 100%
Laura's classes are dynamic and very fun. She is very competent and dedicated. Summer classes are wonderful.
My first tutoring session is complimentary and is more of a "meet and greet". I ask the student what their goals, needs, and interests are, how they like to learn and study, and what I can do to best help them succeed. Through conversation, I assess new students' basic knowledge of English so I can determine a good starting point for our tutoring sessions.
