I am a Spanish native speaker and a former Spanish college professor with over 16 years of experience teaching the language to children and adults. I taught different classes of Spanish language and culture at Governors State University for 12 years. I also prepare students for their SAT Subject test in Spanish and AP Spanish language and Culture tests.

I am a highly qualified and effective instructor. I teach all levels of Spanish as a foreign language as well as Spanish for native speakers, that is for students that speak Spanish already but want to become fully proficient in all aspects of the language.

I am very passionate for Spanish and give 100 percent in my classes. I am also demanding and honest with my students as they learn the language and I help them overcome any obstacles they may encounter in their learning process.

My classes cover the study and practice of the four skills in a language: students will develop their listening, writing, reading and speaking skills. I also provide any learning material and resources needed for your lessons with me.

I look forward to meeting and helping you achieve your academic goals.

Best,
Laura

Wonderful tutor who makes learning Spanish fun!

I was very lucky to find Laura as a tutor. When I was looking for a tutor, I was hoping to find a native Spanish speaker with experience teaching at university--both qualities Laura had. At first, I was a little intimidated to try to learn a second language, but Laura has made learning Spanish very accessible and indeed fun. She offered personalized lessons plans with a good mix of reading, writing and speaking. Laura is always patient, both with teaching grammar and pronunciation. I also really appreciate the flexibility she offers if we need to move classes around. I would wholeheartedly recommend Laura to anyone interested in learning Spanish.

Lovely to work with!

I have been tutoring with Laura for a few months and I always look forward to our sessions! She’s very personable and friendly so it’s easy to practice my conversational skills with her. I love the learning tools she has provided me with: grammar exercises, articles, podcasts, tv shows and songs. The variety helps me improve my skills to become well-rounded in each category. Tutoring online is great as well since its so convenient. Laura is flexible with her schedule and is very understanding if you need to reschedule. I definitely recommend Laura to anyone studying Spanish!

Excellent and Fun Tutor

Laura is tutoring my daughter for her high school Spanish II class. She is kind, patient, and fun, so the time with her is always a great experience. Laura explains things in a way that is very clear and has deepened my daughter's understanding of every topic they have covered. My daughter has done very well on every test where she covered the subject matter with Laura. She is an exceptional tutor and my daughter and I would both recommend her very highly.

Incredible tutor who makes Spanish easy and fun.

Laura has been tutoring my daughter, a sophomore in high school. She was doing OK, but her grade was slipping, she was struggling with some of the more difficult concepts and she really didn't feel that comfortable speaking in Spanish. Working with Laura has been amazing. After the first lesson, my daughter called me right away and told me, "I DEFINITELY want to keep doing that!" Laura makes sure to cover the topics being worked on in her class. She gives some assignments, but she keeps those fun too and they never take too much time. Most importantly, my daughter already feels much more comfortable speaking Spanish. Oh, and her grade is up to an A, so that's nice too. Finally, Laura is extremely professional. She has a plan for each lesson. She's great at communicating to set up the lessons. She has been able to be flexible to accommodate my daughter's schedule and the lessons always start and finish on time. I can't recommend Laura highly enough. If you're looking for a Spanish tutor, work with Laura. She's the best.

Fantastic Tutor!

Laura has been working with our 13-year-old son Liam for the past several months. By way of context, Liam was strong in Spanish but looking to become more conversational, and so we were looking for an experienced, native speaker who could balance text book learning with situational conversation. Today, Liam's lessons are almost all conversation, held in new and different environments to spark discussion. Laura's flexibility in moving to this style of learning, and her engagement and dedication with Liam is hands-down the best I have seen with a language tutor. If you are looking for a Spanish tutor, you will be thankful you found Laura.

Great tutor

Laura is a wonderful tutor! She immediately tuned in to my personal goals and reasons for learning Spanish and is able to cater my lessons and homework to achieving those things. She's very sweet and does a really good job of listening to you speak while teaching at the same time. I'm looking forward to working with her more!

Patient and Friendly Tutor

Laura is doing great with our young son. She keeps the lesson fun and engaging. She is punctual and flexible if you need to change times. She even gives some homework which helps him learn a bit on his own too.

Fantastic tutor!

I have been meeting with Laura online for Spanish lessons for the last 5 weeks. She has been teaching me basic spanish skills, as well as medical spanish. She does a fantastic job at assessing current Spanish skills and developing lessons that are appropriate for your level and your individual Spanish needs. The assignments and activities she offers to work on between lessons are appropriate and aid in keeping the lessons fresh throughout the week so that learned skills can be built upon.

Excellent Start
