The first session is a consultation, where I assess your skills and level and we discuss your aims and requirements.
During your course we focus on all four skills:
Grammar, vocabulary, spelling and pronunciation exercises are also integrated in order to enable you to communicate more effectively in English.
I will design your course to suit your needs and give you individual attention throughout the course. I use a wide range of engaging materials including videos, audios, interactive learning materials etc.
I also provide sufficient homework, regular feedback and supplementary materials. There are regular written and oral tests and mock exams throughout the course.
I teach using highly regarded coursebook by publishers such as Oxford, Cambridge, Pearson and Macmillan.
I also offer exam preparation courses for the following exams:

She is the one you want, but I mean, The one. Many people can teach you, but she has the knowledge to do it on the best way you can imagine. She feels, whether she has to be friendly or the serious one who asks you about your homework. You may pay for a lesson, but she has endless free time to check as many essays as you write her and she is more than happy to give you proper feedback on how to improve them. You can go to her office for a face to face lesson or get a session on skype. Whether you want to take an exam such as IELTS, CAE, CPE or just want to improve your language skills, I am pretty sure you will feel the difference after the classes. If you never try, you never know... Give it a go, and make it a success.
Laura was superb teacher. Great at motivating you to want to learn. She helped me a lot and I'm glad I chose her!
Laura is a very hardworking, conscientious and intelligent person. She is well organised and structured with her plannings. She is a good listener and loves to help others. She has big patient to explain educational materials. I highly recommend her!
Mivel Laura tanítványai elsősorban magyar, akik még nem biztos, hogy olyan szinten vannak az angolul, hogy értsék az ajánlásokat, ezért magyarul ennyit fűznék az ajánlásomhoz: Nem jártam másik angol tanárhoz, de nála türelmesebb, segítőkészebb, lelkiismeretesebb, flexibilisebb tanárt nem is tudtam volna találni. Én most is csak hozzá mennék. Te se hezitálj felkeresni.
I have known Laura for some years, she is my English tutor.
Laura is a very good teacher, kind, calm, but consistent, and takes care of my development.
During this time my English knowledge have got much better in the grammar, writing, understanding and speaking. These skills are very important to use the English language in a good way.
The classes with Laura are in a good mood and the books are interesting. It was a good decision for me to choose Laura for studying the English, that's why I suggest Laura to everybody who wants to develop their English knowledge.
