Lauren is a great and very patient teacher. She easily adjusts to need of a particular student, even a very beginner. I hired Lauren to teach my wife who recently came to the U.S. At first, my wife was unable to even order coffee at Starbucks without my assistance, so shy she was in her poor English language skill. Lauren taught her for about half a year. And now, my wife gets around and communicates well. Recently she was even able to pass the driver’s license test, all without me. Most of this progress is no doubt due to Lauren’s teaching. I would recommend Lauren to all who want to learn English, beginners and intermediates alike.
