About Laurel
As a teacher I recognize that all students have a predominant learning style, so I always work with each person as an individual, tailoring our lessons to discover and promote their innate abilities and interests. I am friendly and patient and work well with children of all ages as well as adults.

My background in English language training is extensive. I have a B.A. in English Literature, Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certification, along with ten years teaching experience in Europe and the Middle East. I also hold a M.Sc. in Biological Science.

My area of special expe
rtise is writing, I can help anyone master the skill of expressing themselves effectively. I love grammar and can make it fun and easy to learn. I have developed curriculum and adapted existing teaching materials to fit students special needs.

These are areas of language training in which I excel:
• Grammar
• Reading Literacy (for both native speakers and ESL learners)
• Business and Vocational English
• Creative and Expository Writing
• English Conversation
• Exam Preparation
• Editing and Proofreading

In the past two years, Laurel has helped me develop my reading and writing skills significantly as well as build graduate level vocabularies. She is very patient and sensitive to my needs, and she always makes our lessons fun! If you need help with the MCAT, GRE, LSAT, or any other graduate school entrance exams, I am sure Laurel will help you nail them and achieve your dreams!

I took a series of online creative writing lessons with Mrs. Taylor. She is one of the kindest and most intelligent persons I have worked with. She helped me find my writing style and patiently and carefully taught me about every aspect of creative writing. She told me not only about grammar and story structure, but also motivated and encouraged me to write a short story. From my first lesson with her, I knew that she is a gifted teacher, as she is knowledgeable and informed. Before taking lessons with her, I was writing in my journal, but now I have written my first piece. She provided meaningful and relevant ideas to help me find the flow of my story. Because of the excellent and exceptional way that she teaches, I have decided to continue with my creative writing.

About Warinya
Hello!
I am a recent graduate from University of California, Berkeley, majoring in Legal Studies and Political Economy minor. Teaching has always been my favorite thing to do! It feels great to share knowledge, techniques and skills on a particular subject and even better when the students can use it for their school and/or career advancement.
I started teaching in 2008 in Bangkok, Thailand. My first job was an English tutor for Thai students (part time) while attending the final year of high school. After I have moved to the US, whenever I have time, I always accept teaching jobs, mostly r
eferrals from my friends or friend of friends.

Warinya is a great piano teacher for my three kids (ages 5 to 8) They love her and enjoy her classes. She has developed a good incentive system that keeps the kids focused and motivated. All are progressing at their own pace. I'm very happy.

About Mary
I have been a Reading Specialist since 1970. Since that time, I have written several books on how to avoid and solve reading problems. My first book, "At Last! A Reading Method for EVERY Child!" was the Main Selection on 3 of Macmillan Book Clubs: Early Learning Book Club, Teachers Book Club, and Library of Special Education Book Club. It is my greatest joy to teach children to read - especially those with reading problems and being able to share with them the excitement of succeeding. Over the years, I have acquired a sizable file of motivating reinforcement activities which make learning fun
and keep the students coming back for more. In 2005-2006, I was honored by inclusion in "Who's Who Among American Teachers." I also love teaching Primary Math - the easy way. As a senior, I feel I have a special rapport with students - a gentle, seasoned approach that puts them at ease with the confidence that they are in very capable hands.

I am pleased to recommend Mary to parents who are looking for special help in reading for their children. Mary is an excellent teacher and gives her students a very positive learning experience. I taught with Mary for several years and always found her excited about taking on new challenges with students. She once took three siblings from Norway, who spoke very little English, and gave them the tools to speak, read, and write in very little time. She is amazing!

Allison and I worked on a screenplay together which won an award. The process by which that screenplay was written, is the interesting part. Allison shared many different ways that she uses to create the world of the story and then fill it with characters. She easily explains how interactions and dialogue can be elevated, in order to pull an audience member into the story. I have never seen such a unique and easy to follow writing style as Allison shared with me.

Enjoy creating with a true creator.

Allison sees things, creates scenes, personifies purity in her writing that can only be described as singularly unique! Personally, she helped me to expand my vision, redirect ANYTHING from my past or present toward creative expression and ultimately made me a better poet, script writer and professional entertainer. You could not find a more caring, enthusiastic and easy-going teacher!
