NOTICE: Hello fellow students and welcome to my profile. I would like to let you know that if you cannot find much availability at this time then I am likely to be all booked up at the moment. If you would like to arrange lessons, feel free to follow my page and send me a message and I will do my best to accommodate you or add you to my waiting list. Thank you for reading and happy learning!

Hello, my name is Laura and I am a native English speaker from Bournemouth in the South of England. I do know and appreciate just how difficult it feels when wanting to speak a new language, as I am experiencing the difficulty of speaking Portuguese every day. I have a Masters 150 hour online TEFL qualification and have over a years experience in teaching English here on Skima Talk.

You can expect a relaxed atmosphere and if it's our first meeting, an opportunity to assess your goals and get to know one another. Future lessons will then be based around your learning goals and I will do my best in helping you to achieve them. I always include notes in the Skype window during each lesson, for your review.

I am known for my friendly and understanding personality and would very much like to help you feel more comfortable speaking English.

I very much look forward to meeting and speaking with you.
