General Everyday English, Business English, Native Conversational English & Comprehension

Hello, my name is Laura and I'm from South UK. I moved to Portugal a few years ago and am still learning the language amongst the natives, so I can appreciate the difficulties of language learning.

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. I enjoy teaching Business English and General Everyday English and have a wide range of different scenarios, topics and materials to offer. I also enjoy reading and discussing current news articles and getting to know the kinds of topics that interest you, for conversation lessons.

I often introduce more native sounding and appropriate vocabulary, expressions and structure to help convey your ideas a little more easily, more smoothly and more naturally. I also correct your pronunciation and grammar where necessary and include full feedback notes in Skype, for your review.

I enjoy observing my students improve and there is nothing better than seeing all of their hard work, practice and dedication pay off. I've helped many students achieve a variety of different goals, from delivering presentations, to tour guide exams, to IELTS, TOEFL and MBA Interview training.

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

Thank you.
