    Laura was kind, patient, and a great mentor to my daughter. My daughter adored her, and the two of them made great progress in their time together. She works very hard with her students and she has depth knowledge about the subject. I definitely recommend Laura to anyone looking for a English guidance!

About this pro

My website shows various portfolios of my writing. I love writing. I am an inveterate editor. I love teaching. My writing is lively, accurate, and versatile. Give me an interesting (or even not-so-interesting) topic and I will find joy in writing about it. Give me a poorly written draft and I will enliven it, crisp it up, enrich it, and organize it down to the bone. I love doing that. I guess that's what makes my service stand out. I just love working with words and ideas, and making t hem come together in the most meaningful way I can. Ideas and words and wedding them together into a meaningful, coherent form. I love working with words, and helping others work with them to communicate clearly and concisely what they intend to convey. I seem to have a talent for both writing and teaching writing. I guess after 30 years of doing both, I'd better have that talent!
