« Laura coached me for a presentation in front of an auditorium full of professionals and members of the public. The positive themed training she gave on how to vocally warm up, steady nerves, project, engage, structure the presentation and just 'be me' was revelatory and invaluable. The result - I thoroughly enjoyed giving the talk, got a great response and a lot of congratulations! The skills Laura imparted have served me well since. Laura's a superb empowering teacher, I couldn't recommend her enough. »

Laura is a very well prepared and organised teacher, who manages to set exacting standards without inhibiting inspiration and natural spirit.

Our daughter thoroughly enjoyed their sessions together, and Laura managed to build her confidence whilst maintaining rigorous standards.

E
Elsa

Prior to tutoring, my daughter was managing ok in class, but lacked confidence when tests, exams, etc. took place. Laura not only had the ability to improve her confidence greatly, but also taught my daughter how to apply different techniques and methods.

Additionally, Laura is extremely professional in her approach, fun to be around and with and has a sense of humour (essential!). She treats the children too with respect and understands that in return they readily give that back.
