About Laura

Whether it happened long ago or a in conversation happening now, I have always been fascinated by stories. Learning different languages, mastering my own language, and understanding the events of the past have always opened me up to more stories and experiences. I hope you will let me do the same as your tutor, whether we're studying Spanish, French, English, or history together.
Through teaching informal classes in Paraguay and Bolivia, I have learned that personalized, small-class environments are where my style thrives. I am excited to help you understand these subjects better through creative games, memorization tips, or even just an hour spent talking in a language you want to learn.

I am available throughout the day on weekdays, and look forward to meeting with you at your home or in a comfortable location (such as a coffee shop).

I studied Spanish and French extensively at the college level, graduating with a major in the first and a minor in the second. I tutored an elementary-school student in Spanish for a year, and really enjoyed the one-on-one interaction. In addition to my formal studies, I've also spent several months in both Paraguay and Bolivia, which gave me extensive practice with Spanish particularly.

In addition to being a native speaker of the language, I have developed skills in proofreading and vocabulary development through my own educational experiences. I believe in guiding students to improve their writing, not simply correcting their mistakes. I also love vocabulary, and would enjoy using games and other methods to increase the knowledge of my students.

I have always loved history, and enjoy focusing on it as a story. I would love to share my enthusiasm with students. I also have many years of experience in memorizing through my language studies and have plenty of memory retention strategies that I can share.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you learn more about the wonderful stories this world has to offer!
