About Laurie


Bio

I have over a decade of tutoring experience, and have seen great improvements in my clients! Languages and writing are my passion: Spanish, Portuguese, French, English as a Second Language, composition, grammar, and editing. I also have a degree in mathematics, however, and enjoy helping people with algebra, geometry, pre-calc or calculus. Currently I am a Spanish and Portuguese teacher, and freelance translator and editor. I love tutoring, though, because it gives me a chance to work...

I have over a decade of tutoring experience, and have seen great improvements in my clients! Languages and writing are my passion: Spanish, Portuguese, French, English as a Second Language, composition, grammar, and editing. I also have a degree in mathematics, however, and enjoy helping people with algebra, geometry, pre-calc or calculus. Currently I am a Spanish and Portuguese teacher, and freelance translator and editor. I love tutoring, though, because it gives me a chance to work one-on-one with clients. Together we can work on your interests and focus on the tough areas of a subject that are giving you trouble. I also enjoy the relaxed, informal nature of tutoring, which I feel makes learning better for all.

I have a Ph.D. in Spanish and Portuguese. I have studied languages in several universities, and have spent time living abroad in the respective countries of the languages I teach. I make language learning fun, active, and engaging. You will be speaking from the first lesson! I like to use current materials, such as news articles, music, and videos, and give you the words and grammar you need to use the most.

Contact me via phone, text, or email. I am available for tutoring 7 days a week in the New York City metropolitan area, as well as via Skype or telephone. I look forward to working with you!

I am a certified ESL teacher, and have tutored speakers of other languages IN English for nearly 10 years. I also speak several languages and teach Spanish and Portuguese at the University level, so I know the difficulty of learning proper expression.

I have a Ph.D. in Spanish and Portuguese, and I have also lived and taught Portuguese in Brazil. In the U.S. I am involved with the Brazilian community through dance (samba, gafieira, forro), music, and capoeira. I teach with a communicative method that encourages students to speak from the very first lesson. I enjoy using current materials, such as news articles, songs, and videos, tailored to student interests.
