I really enjoyed working with Laura. She was very open to tailor every lesson to my needs and style. Laura was a true professional and a delight to be around. I definitely recommend her.Jan 2, 2018Verified
I was in search of a Spanish teacher for corporate lessons and, little did I know, that I hit the jackpot when I hired Laura. We had little idea of what was required to begin lessons, but Laura was extremely helpful every step of the way. She created detailed lesson plans for our class with various learning levels and gave extra aid to any students that required it. She makes each class interesting, even after a long or difficult work day, Laura's positivity and optimism is infectious and gets students excited to attend her classes. We are all so grateful to have found an incredible teacher like Laura and I couldn't recommend her more highly!!!Dec 28, 2017Verified
Laura is a fantastic teacher, can’t recommend her enough.Dec 20, 2017
Laura is an incredible Spanish teacher! She took me from barely a couple of words on the first day we met to being able to have conversations across a wide variety of topics. She is patient, articulate, creative, and able to pull various teaching methods to cater to the way I learn best. She knew when and how to push me and how to constantly keep me excited about learning Spanish She is an absolute professional and was always punctual. The only reason I don't take Spanish classes with her is because I relocated away from NYC, otherwise I would still be taking classes with her. Muchos gracias Laura!!Apr 30, 2017Verified
Laura is an excellent Spanish teacher. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn the language. Her one on one approach makes learning easy and fun! I leave every session feeling like I have a better grasp on the language than I did the day before. She is a patient teacher and makes sure you master a group of words (especially verbs and the conjugations) before moving on. If you want to learn Spanish I would go to her.Mar 30, 2017Verified
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I evaluate the student's current Spanish level, ask them about their background with the language, and set Spanish learning goals. My goal is to tailor the content of each lesson based on their learning style, and the specific professional or personal areas they need to gain fluency in.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I'm passionate about empowering people. A great source of gratification in my job is seeing people grow professionally and become more successful by implementing a new language among their skill set.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Professionals in the industries of advertising, marketing, human rights, education, entertainment, immigration, legal, marketing, media, retail, software, medical and websites.
