Hello! Please read my profile thoroughly before booking a lesson!
I'm Laura, I'm 39 and I live in Yorkshire in the north of England where I work as a professional photographer and as a marker of English functional skills mock exams. I'm currently learning Spanish so I know what it's like to be a student just like you! I'm a native English speaker with a neutral northern English accent.
I have a degree in both Media & Psychology and a 120 hour TEFL certificate.

Me as a Teacher
I'm very easy to talk to with a casual teaching style! It's so important to feel at ease with your tutor and to enjoy lessons. The more you enjoy them, the more you learn. As a Spanish student myself I understand that talking with a native speaker is so beneficial!
I understand that life happens, so please don't worry if you need to cancel or rearrange a lesson!
Remember that I teach in and speak British English rather than American English.
My lessons are aimed at *learners aged 18 and over*
I do *not* offer children's lessons, business English, interview or IELTS prep.
I do *not* give consent for screen recording during lessons but I’m happy to send you class notes!
My lessons & teaching style
Lessons are tailored to your needs and your level of English :)
Simple conversational sessions are my favourite! It's such a great way to learn and practise, and often much more interesting. I love teaching British idioms and slang in every day conversation but I can also help you with grammar, pronunciation and corrections. I will note down helpful corrections as we talk, I will review them with you at the end of the lesson and then send my notes to you for you to keep.
We'll focus on whatever it is that will help you progress and learn!

Laura is an excellent teacher, I'm quite fortunate to have stumbled upon her profile. From the very first lesson there was a hundred percent match in vibe and attitude towards certain subjects. I can feel that I'm making a lot of progress with her. I would highly recommend Laura as an exceptional English teacher and an outstanding person.

I love our lessons, we speak about everything. She is comprehensive and patience. She makes me fell relax during our class, no matter how many mistakes could I make. I feel more confident with the language since we met.
