English Conversation Lessons for people who would like to practice conversation and grammar. My coaching is for native-speakers as well as English learners.

Methodology

Dialectics, asking and answering questions in a communicative style. Coaching is about you, so you will set your own goals, while I will help you achieve them, sometimes assigning optional tasks. I look forward to meeting you. It doesn't matter where you live, coaching is available. My coaching is also available for non-native speakers and English language learners. I am an American who was born in North Carolina.

Background

I have a Doctoral Degree in Curriculum and Instruction as well as a lifetime of experience in education. I have worked with people from all over the world. More than 26 years of experience in teaching in America. I have mentored hundreds of people who were/are in Georgia and across the world. Most of my mentees have flourished by accomplishing various goals such as moving to new countries, passing tests, or getting specific jobs. Everyone should set their own personal goals and change them if they should so decide.

Laura is a professional teacher for real! I've improved my English by a level or two in quite a short time. She is very nice and very comfortable to communicate with. That helped me to overcome language boundary. Laura helps me both with preparation for IELTS exam and with
job interviews. Highly recommend!
