About Me

I am passionate about people development. My strongest characteristics are patience and empathy. I have always had a huge interest in Language and communication. After immigrating to South Africa from England at a very young age, I was very shy as a child. Now, I love to assist people to gain confidence through the way they speak and communicate.

In 2011 I opened my own training company. For the past two years, I was an Executive Leadership Coach for a leading coaching company with over 1500 accumulated hours of one-on-one coaching, working with executives from some of SA’s top blue chip companies.

As a coach, I work closely with my clients, assisting them to bring about positive changes in both their personal and professional lives. My coaching techniques assist people to formulate clear and achievable goals, and apply the necessary steps to realize these goals.

Two things I find most important: Kindness & Diplomacy.

Skype French class (online) with native teacher! The technology to learn.
The technology to improve your French. Classes with a certified native teacher. Hello Bonjour! I am a native French teacher and graduated in French Philology since 2012. I have five years of experience in Belgium and abroad. I propose online classes with a method that I have developed over the years, specifically for online classes. My method: -During class we focus on speaking. Outside of class, I will send you exercises that I will correct each week (grammar, conjugation, writing…). -Use a particular technique based on questions / answers to apply grammar speaking. -You will also receive an access to an application for your Smartphone (to learn the vocabulary). -Use an interactive whiteboard. -We will use a shared online notebook to correct your exercises and ask me your questions at any time of the day. I propose preparation for official exams (DELF, dalf, tcf, eoi ...). Classes for beginners, intermediate or advanced levels. Preparation of conferences or talks for business. Job interviews. The class is a bit different when I work with children or teenagers. I use interactive websites and letters. If you want a young, organized, dynamic and passionate teacher, call me or write me! See you soon, Laurie

Improve your speeches in public and in meetings / Paris
Public speaking is one of the most scary things for human beings. For some, this can be extremely disabling and hinder their entire career. But this apprehension concerns a very large percentage of the population and crosses all categories of age, sex or socio-professional environment. If you are in this case, you can start by reassuring yourself: you are not alone! The second good news is that it works! It is by practicing that you will learn how to lower the level of stress, to be more aware of what you have to do and to be well prepared. To practice, I offer private lessons: a benevolent and demanding environment that will allow us to adapt to your specific needs. Once you have understood your fears and learned to overcome them, speaking (in public, meeting) may be a great source of fun!

Conversational English: Improve with Native English Speaker!
This is a communicative English class for developing speech. Here we will explore, vocabulary with nuances in meanings, synonyms, idioms, proverbs, some phrasal verb and prepositional verbs and all-around social English. The possibilities are endless for focusing on Public Speaking, Intonation and Voice Projection as well. This may be stimulated by interesting audios, short readers or videos. If there are topics you have in mind, we can additionally explore and incorporate this into your lessons. If you need to start speaking English, this class is for you! KEEP IN MIND that your grammar must meet a 7-page assessment requirement which will be administered during the first session; otherwise, you will have to book the class titled "English Development with Native Speaker (Pronunciation, ESL, Business, TOIEC/TOEFL/IELTS Prep)".

Practice (Professional) English with a Native English Speaker
I'm a native English speaker from the USA, living in Rotterdam. In my job as an engineer, I regularly help colleagues with their written and spoken English. I'm available to help you practice English on a regular basis on weeknights. I specialize in working with students in professional or technical fields who are interested in refining their English writing and speaking skills. I also speak fluent Dutch, as well as some Spanish and French, so I'm familiar with common English mistakes and understand what's causing them. Examples of lessons: - Reviewing written documents together, and identifying recurring errors (work emails, proposals, reports, etc.). - General conversation practice, and presentation practice. I will listen, take notes, and provide feedback on pronunciation and grammar, while we discuss various topics. - Practice speaking exercises in preparation for IELTS exams. - Assistance with job applications (reviewing English CVs and cover letters). I do not teach beginners courses in English, as I have a full-time job and this would require longer/more intensive lessons. If you're interested, I'd love to hear a bit more about what you'd like to learn, so I can tailor the lessons to your needs: - What is your previous experience with English? - Why are you improving your English? - Do you have any specific goals? (e.g. certain topics you would like to be able to speak/write about) For our first lesson we can meet at a cafe/park/library/online, and after that we can chose the location that makes the most sense.

*New* English with qualified British Teacher (native speaker): Friendly, Informative, Effective English Language Lessons (online via Skype)
Hello, I am a qualified native British English teacher, with a passion for helping people improve their English in a friendly, relaxed, collaborative way. I can help you increase your competence, and confidence, in both general and business English. Everybody has different language learning needs, therefore, your lesson will be tailored to meet your individual requirements. You may feel that you need to improve your listening comprehension, or extend your vocabulary; fine tune your pronunciation, or enhance your written and spoken grammar; boost your confidence in public speaking or feel comfortable with social conversation. Together we will identify your areas of priority and get you to where you want to be. I have a clear speaking voice, with no regional accent – which learners find easy to understand, and a friendly collaborative approach, rather than a dictatorial teaching style. I am learning French (my level is B2), so I know from personal experience that learning a new language can be challenging. Sometimes we feel we have reached a plateau and feel disheartened. In these situations, we need somebody who will be patient and take time to help us. I also know how frustrating it can be when we find it difficult to find the nuances that help us to express ourselves fluently. I understand. I will help you progress. It is natural to be nervous when learning to speak another language, but I promise not to scare you! I will help you overcome those nerves and develop confidence & competence in the areas that you need it most. I have the necessary pedagogy to help you with grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, listening skills and the varied styles of writing. (TEFL qualified with Distinction, 150-hour course). I also have 29 years’ experience in public speaking and giving presentations, so if you need to practice those skills in English I can help you with that. If you choose to learn with me, our first session will focus on identifying the following: • your language learning goals • your reasons for learning English • your language learning needs • your preferred method of learning • the amount of time you have allocated to studying English I look forward to working with you!

English Prononciation Training, Improve your accent & speak clearly
I speacialize in teaching students how pronounce english words correctly. This can be one of the hardest parts of learning English and it is key for people to understand you when you speak. The English language has some sounds that your native language might not, so you will have to learn how to make completely new sounds.

| Creative Spanish Lessons Online to Improve Your Abilities or Start from Scratch |
I have always treated my students as individuals with their own story and passions and so I dedicate myself to design my own materials which will match their needs and interests. Because of my studies and indispensable TedTalks I became interested in implementing unconventional student-oriented methods into my everyday teaching. During my classes I use apps such as HeadsUp, BlackStories, Kahoot and Padlet to make them more interactive and motivating. I truly believe that education does not have to be system-determined and in 21st century students deserve to be taught with appropriate technology and so I have started to teach online. I hope you will give it a shot too :)
