She was very understanding and helpful. She's even gone an extra mile to look for resources for me and worked around with my schedule.
I have been studying with Laurette for over 2 years. I really enjoy the classes with her. She has a lot of experience and is helpful. My English writing was very weak so she suggested that I make summaries of the short lectures from Ted.com. Through working on the summaries, I can improve my writing and vocabulary. She helped me with using various words correctly and clearly explains obscure expressions for me. She also helped me to pass the TOEIC Speaking Test and I got a great score. I really appreciated it. I believe that she is really helpful, especially for ESL students.
I've been working with Laurette since this August on regular weekly schedule. She helped me enormously to achieve my current goals in enhancing my spoken English skills. I needed a conversational partner and I found this partner in Laurette - she is awesome to talk to about practically anything, since she has wide spectrum of knowledge, from English language and Sociology to Science and Technology. However, Laurette is far more than a conversational partner - she is constantly on a lookout, monitoring any deviation in my speech from standard English grammar and promptly providing a correcting feedback. Specifically, I have an issue with abusing formal English expressions in places where informal ones should be used. So Laurette detects and logs a misuse letting me finish the sentence and later explains what the issue is and supporting her point with logged error, correct usage, and similar examples. Laurette has been also a great resource in helping me with better understanding of various phenomena in my American life that are not always easy to explain for such an immigrant as myself, and subsequently in avoiding potentially awkward situations. As a free bonus of the service, Laurette talk to me over the phone regularly once a week, which I appreciate very much as an additional language practice in specific environment of a phone conversation. What I gain from working with Laurette is that every meeting or phone talk gives me a boost of confidence not only in my spoken English, but also let me feel to be better blended in to my social fabric.
Today, I needed to write my biography for final review, and Laurette helped me a lot. Finally, I could finish it.
When I was in college, Laurette used to help me with my papers. She was very helpful, sweet and very open minded!! Sometimes I had to make an appointment one day before due date, but she was always there for me. I really enjoyed working with her while staying in America. I would strongly recommend Laurette.
