About Laurette

Hi - I love to teach others how to read, write, and pronounce English perfectly. I help college students with their essays, both ESL and native-born students. I proofread and/or work on how to write successfully. Other interests are helping students with vocabulary and pronunciation. My students do well on the TOEFL and TOEIC tests they take for school or work.
My education includes a Bachelors in Sociology (which I love) and I am working on completing a Master's program.

I am looking forward to working with you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

English is a source of great joy to me. Communicating naturally and easily in English requires practice and I know for me that the best way to improve a foreign language is to have lessons from a native speaker. English is a challenging language with a lot to offer: Literature, poetry, songs and a level of comfort with this international language.

I've taught English as a Second Language to College students and High School Juniors and Seniors in additional to Career people who asked for help communicating in Business and/or passing the TOEFL test.

Helping people succeed is both interesting to me and a satisfying career. I plan to go to school for a Masters in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) within the next few years. I am a believer in lifelong learning; noone is ever too old or too young to learn.

My favorite clients have been anywhere from 16 to 62 years old - This is the range I would love to work with.

Thank you.

Study Skills

I have successfully helped people hone up on their knowledge and skills for various English proficiency tests. This includes how to study, where to find resources and how to maximize their scores. I have the necessary skill to help people perform well on their tests.
