« Laura has been a LAMDA teacher at St. John's since September 2011. Her results have been absolutely first class. I expected nothing less as Laura is a most diligent and empathetic teacher. In this way she is able to feel and understand how her students are coping and progressing with their learning and to adapt her methods accordingly. She is also able to mix kindness and firmness in the right quantities in order to get the best out of her students.   »

Since starting to work with Laura on some speech difficulties, my 9 year old son has made real progress. She makes every session fun and enjoyable and he absolutely loves working with her. Being entered for a LAMDA examination not only gave him increased self confidence but also a goal to work towards. I would highly recommend Laura as a friendly, professional and enthusiastic teacher who really gets the best from her pupils.

“I have always been impressed by Daniel's levels of English considering it being his second language, however, following his elocution lessons with Laura Field I have noticed a significant improvement to his pronunciation of words. More importantly is the confidence it has given him to speak to clients over the telephone, I have noticed that he has slowed down and has more assurance in his ability to be understood”.
