"My initial motivation to learn Spanish was purely business and I had very little time to learn it. But apart from just learning the language I wanted to understand the culture and Laura's classes were one of the few which at first glance reflected a sense of language plus culture. The one on one format is great when you want to learn fast. It helps pace out classes as per your individual understanding. Laura's teaching technique using cue cards and drawings is simply great. The sheer fact that within six classes you can construct complete sentences and pretty much describe places, things, people, locations is amazing. Recently on Laura's suggestion I visited Wahaca and in the next class described the restuarant, food, ambience and the overall experience. Now that really helped guage how much I had learned in such a short time !!! In short: °Muy Bien!" Safiul Gazi, Investment.
"Loving my Spanish classes with Laura! She is very patient and encouraging, and puts a lot of enthusiasm and effort into preparing effective learning materials and sharing other mediums through which you can gain exposure to the language and other aspects of Hispanic culture. Took lessons with Laura before a 5 months trip to South America which gave me a good basis for communicating with the locals and could not wait to continue lessons with her upon my return! Definitely recommend for anyone wishing to learn Spanish outside of a classroom environment." Yvonne Seow, Accountant.
"Lauraís lessons are always relevant, well prepared and enjoyable." Peter Exon, Doctor.
"Laura is a wonderful teacher. She makes all the lessons interesting and fun. She is very encouranging and I really feel Iím making progress. We wanted to learn Mexican Spanish so itís great for us to learn Mexican phrases and about Mexican culture." Liz Wigglesworth, Stenographer.
"Learning Latin American Spanish with Laura made so much easier with her very skilled and informal approach. Laura makes things fun and has bags of patience Ė always willing to answer questions. You donít just feel you are learning a language with Laura, but the culture too." Dan Beadle, Support worker.
"I really like the boutique and bespoke nature of Laura's classes. She is an excellent teacher and I really enjoy our sessions". Mark Heywood, Author.
"I have been going to Laura for individual Spanish lessons, for over a year now, and recommend her without reservation. She has a gift for tailoring each class to suit my own interests and ability, explaining areas of difficulty in a way that clarifies and simplifies what had seemed impossibly complicated before. Lessons are imaginative and unthreatening. I enjoy them and am always surprised when the hour is over, time never drags." Susan Younghouse, retired Speech and language Therapist.
"I have been massively impressed by Laura's approach to helping us learn Spanish. She has invested a huge amount of preparation time on designing her own teaching materials and lesson plans, which results in structured, enjoyable and beneficial learning. I recently went to Spain for a weekend and could not believe how much Spanish I had learnt in such a short space of time. An excellent teacher." David Steele, Chartered Tax Advisor.
