Currently, I teach English at a high school in Spain and give private lessons virtually. I enjoy working with pupils, from kids to adults, and helping them improve their English! I specialize in building confidence in speaking and business English. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or to schedule a free introductory session.

Since I love learning about new cultures and interacting with people, I have done individual ESL tutoring since 2005 when I started tutoring students that were studying abroad at University of California, Riverside (UCR). My focus was on oral English, getting students to practice their English while correcting their mistakes/weak areas. Also, I helped students build confidence in speaking. During my junior year, I tutored math students at a local high school and really enjoyed working with youth. I received my Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from UCR. After graduating, I worked in Costa Rica for a few months and then did in-house marketing in Orange County.

I earned my 120+ hour TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) certificate at UCR in 2010. There I learned to teach English as a language at all levels, ranging from kindergarten pupils to college students to business professionals, abroad and in the USA.

Over the last 10 years, I have substituted for teachers, taught business English lessons, led writing and oral English classes at colleges abroad, and taught grammar and writing at private English language schools in the USA. All while providing private ESL tutoring to students of different ages. My experience includes teaching in Los Angeles, China, San Diego, Saudi Arabia, Vermont, Orange County, and most recently virtually to entrepreneurs and other professionals.

ESL/ESOL

I have been an ESL tutor since 2005 when I joined UCR’s Conversation Partners. Since, I have been helping English language learners improve their English and build confidence. In 2010 I graduated from the one year TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) certificate program at UC Riverside. Through the program I learned to teach English as a language at all levels ranging from kindergarten kids to college students to professional workers, abroad and in the USA. My last course in the TESOL program consisted of me teaching my own class for ten weeks. I worked as an English teacher for ELS Language Schools; I started as a substitute and then taught my own business English class. I taught written and oral English at a college in China for a year and half while also teaching speaking and listening classes to middle school and high school students at a summer camp and tutoring individual teens on my weekends. I taught English (grammar, listening, speaking, reading and writing) at the International Academy of English in San Diego from April 2012 to August 2013. Then, I went to teach English in Saudi Arabia for a school year. Upon my return to the USA, I tutored students at an adult language school and taught my own class of high school students in Vermont. Now that I am back in California, I have been teaching ESL at schools and through private tutoring.

I really recommend Laura's class

I have taken really good classes with her! My husband recommended her so I started the class with her. My husband and I really satisfied with her class. I am going to take the classes more with her to improve English skill. I am definitely sure that my English skill will be improving with her.

Laura is a knowledgeable and patient tutor. She always take the time to explain things. She has been tutoring me for little over a month. I meet with her once a week and she is great. I have improved my writing thanks to her.

Lupe, 24 lessons with Laura

Professional and enthusiastic

My son Kyle is from China, he need improve his English for his study in high school. Fortunately, we find Laural, she use simple and flexible language to help Kyle’s problems in communicating with others. Without her help, Kyle couldn’t improve in communication so fast. And now he can do simple conversations fluently. So I’m appreciate for her tutoring.

Great experience with Laura as ESL teacher

Laura is doing a great job working with my 13 year old nephew who is learning English as second language. He has only taken a few weeks of lessons, but I already see improvement in his confidence level - he is more willing to open his mouth and talk (even if its not always correct). He seems to be enjoying the lessons - which is awesome considering how difficult it is to make language learning fun at the start. Laura is also very organized - she reminds me/confirms whether we have a lesson planned, and always lets me know when my nephew is heading home from the lesson. I would highly recommend Laura as a teacher!
