About this pro
As part of my job in communications with the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation, an international non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of genocide and other mass atrocities, I took Spanish lessons with Laura multiple times per week from January of 2016 to December of 2017. While I began this endeavor with a rudimentary understanding of Spanish, my abilities – especially with regards to my professional duties – rapidly improved. We worked together on a variety of communications products and translations (both English-Spanish and Spanish-English). Due to the nature of my work, translated items featured specialized political and diplomatic vocabularies. Over the course of our time together, we synthesized and translated a wide variety of documents including interviews with prominent actors in the field, recurring reports on efforts for the prevention of mass atrocities, reporting on events in the field, newsletters and other electronic communications, as well as a wide variety of other documents as they arose. These efforts required fast-paced work to meet tight deadlines and necessitated an understanding of concepts and vocabulary used in the field of human rights, international humanitarian law and mass atrocity prevention. The translated documents have been used for a wide variety of training initiatives for government officials around the world and by partnered entities, such as the Latin American Network for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention. In short: Laura provides a high-quality service and I would certainly recommend her to anyone (or any organization) looking for a private teacher or tutor, especially in the context of communications. She is very consistent and always came equipped with any customized materials or background research necessary to maximize the productivity of our sessions.Apr 10, 2018
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
