"I've been working with Laurel for about a year. My goal was to improve my spoken English for making professional presentations. English is my third language. We work online, doing a range of exercises and projects from phrase lists to reading poetry. Laurel helps me to identify learning goals specific to me and to each task, such as working on individual sounds that give me trouble and stressing key terms in a conference presentation.

Laurel is always supportive, friendly, and warm during lessons, which helps me to stop worrying about my shortcomings and focus on improvement. We laugh a lot; while reaching the learning goals, each lesson also feels joyful, like a little party. I've noticed a marked improvement in the clarity of my presentations."

"Laurel Archer is a fabulous tutor. She knows how to connect with teens and how to teach them skills in ways they will actually remember. She's super kind and has a great laugh. It was so much less painful going to class because she was my tutor and it was actually enjoyable. I was a bit of a challenge to tutor but she was very patient and understanding of my struggles and learning disability."

Also she helped anything what I requested. I had been with her only two month, but finally I got confidence to talk English than before. She is very charming and kind! I enjoyed her lesson very much!"
