About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I customize the lessons for each student. I don't come in with a set agenda but I talk with each person and decide what will work for them best, and I can adapt as time goes on to help them the best way possible.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love helping people and teaching them something new! I am patient and yet I am excited about what I am teaching ~ I love French and English and want everyone to be able to speak these wonderful languages :)

    Laurel was very flexible with me in setting up a schedule that worked for us both. She helped me continue with classes when the group I originally planned to go in with dropped out.

    Laurel does a great job by making it easy to learn French. She is easy to work with and is an all around great person.

    I took French 1 with Mrs. Nicolosi. She is very flexible and personal. She will address your specific weaknesses and needs as soon as possible. I enjoyed her fun teaching style! Mrs. Nicolosi always had relevant games and videos to show the class as we learned things, to make French less intimidating. I've always had a hard time with language, but she really helped the information make more sense for me!

    Thank you Peng - I see you need English help and I am happy to give it to you through our online lessons - your teacher Laurel :)

    Laurel is a capable and experienced tutor. She is especially skilled in teaching children for whom English is a second language, or who may be having difficulty coming from a home where English is not spoken well. She is patient and has a great variety of materials that she draws upon depending on the student's need.

    Laurel is one of the most professional, and open, friendly approaches to online education for language instruction. She is personable, and treats everyone with dignity and respect; including children. Laurel effectively uses online tools, for social media integration for education. I have learned a great deal working with her on radio-based education development.


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I usually talk to them by email or phone - we set up a date to meet informally for a 30 min free consultation, or sometimes for a first session within the next week or so. I find out what they need and customize a program specifically for them, in whatever time frame and sessions they need. I am flexible and willing to meet them wherever they need, and provide a good value for their money and time.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Really think through what you want to do before you start looking at hiring a professional. Tell us what you want and the timeframe (if you have one), and what your budget is. Tell us if you are willing to travel or do it online, or commit 1-2 days a week, and what your goals are. If you have a clearer picture in mind, we can help you get there faster.
