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 living in Portugal and experiencing the challenge of speaking Portuguese every day.
I have a Masters 150 hour online TEFL qualification and have over 5 years' experience in teaching English here on Skima Talk. I am known for my friendly and understanding personality and for my passion and dedication for teaching English.
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 Skype during each lesson, for your review.
Also, over the last 5 years, I have had the pleasure of teaching many students who went through the MBA application process. We started with TOEFL or IELTS exam training and then moved on to MBA interview training. I’ve taught many examinees and applicants who have since shared their success stories. Not only had they achieved high scores in their TOEFL or IELTS exams but they were also admitted to top business schools, such as London Business School, UCLA Anderson and Chicago Booth. Please feel free to check out some of their success stories, here on my profile page.
I very much look forward to meeting and speaking with you, helping you to achieve your language goals and helping you to feel more comfortable speaking English.
