Laura is an excellent Spanish teacher! She is always well prepared for our classes and she brings interesting materials for us to go through and learn from. I am at an intermediate level of Spanish and vocabulary is what I have the biggest need in improving, and therefore our classes are mainly about increasing vocabulary.
We read different types of text, from news articles to poems, and I feel that is exactly what I need to improve, because I learn such a wide variety of words. Now, after having had four lessons with Laura, I already notice that I have an easier time understanding both spoken and written Spanish, because of the practice I get with Laura, both from our conversations and by learning the unfamiliar words we encounter during each lesson (which are quite a few, the lessons are intense, but definitely worth it!!). What I really like about Laura is how you notice that she is very passionate about Spanish and that she genuinely wants to help you. She is a very motivating teacher because her own interest in learning more and looking up anything she encounters which is not familiar to her, makes me want to learn more as well. (This happens for example when were reading from a webpage (in Spanish) about a subject, and then they make a reference to something else, and then we read about that too. She does not derail from Spanish teaching, of course :-) ).
Overall it is really fun and helpful to take classes with Laura, shes a very nice, fun and smart woman and Im always looking forward to our classes. Shes definitely the best Spanish teacher Ive had because she helps me in the specific areas I need help with, and I feel that our time spent together is well worth it and that I leave each lesson having learned a lot. I would absolutely recommend Laura to everyone who wants to improve their Spanish!!
