Laura was the best English teacher I have ever had. I felt so good with her. and my wife is shy and she works with her and she is so happy to learn English with her . She is a very great teacher to help you learn and feel she cares for you and you will learn so much.
My wife is from Haiti and speaks French Creole..Laura was professional , patient and successful at helping my wife reduce her accent and feel more confident at work. We were so impressed with Laura that we hired her to work with my stepson for ESL as well. She really made learning enjoyable and was very skillful in working with him.
I love working with Laura. I am in fifth grade and homeschooled and she tutors me in all of my school subjects. Laura is patient when I make mistakes and don’t understand something. Laura is really nice and I love having her as my tutor!
I had a great experience working on English vocabulary and pronunciation with Laura. I came to this country as a young girl and though I have spoken English fluently for many years, she was able to help me with adding new English words I never learned and she was extremely patient and caring about helping me with my accent and pronunciation which was something that meant a lot to me. I am truly so glad for her help and support. It has been a great choice for my life.
The first step in working with any new ESL student is to build a positive rapport and positive learning relationship.
The next step is to get to know and thoroughly understand what the learning needs and goals are for that particular student.
From speaking, reading , writing to Accent Reduction and improved pronunciation, I find out what is the most important goals for the student.
From there, I use my experience and skills to make an instructional plan to meet the student's unique needs and situation.
We work together and with the student's input start working to successfully achieve the student's ESL desired outcomes.
I am a Massachusetts Certified teacher in English as a Second Language with decades of experience working in both public schools, private schools and one - to one tutoring situations.
I have had decades of experience with in person tutoring and, now, with Covid - 19 have been working remotely through Zoom tutoring sessions.
I base my price for sessions on the plans and type of sessions that the student is looking for and if it will work for the student.
