What Our Students & Clients Say
Mi sono trovata molto bene per un corso d'inglese individuale organizzato dalla mia azienda, leader nel campo IT world wide. Il corso è stato perfettamente ritagliato su quelle che erano le mie esigenze, con esempi pratici e conversazioni mirate ai vari incontri e viaggi che dovevo affrontare, con attenzione anche ad aspetti extra linguaggio. Lezioni efficaci e anche molto piacevoli, che è importante quando si ritagliano in ufficio!
Teaching to young students can be challenging, but Laura has the necessary skills to handle a roomful of young, eager students. She is an excellent Business English teacher and she manages to not only convey notions that are strictly related to linguistics, but more importantly, give these young, future professionals an array of extremely useful tips on how they communicate and present themselves to the world.
Laura managed to turn a simple English course into a Life Lesson. She taught us techniques to improve our communication and deliver our message with confidence. I appreciated her energy and dynamism. She reminded me of a most important lesson: it is never too late to learn, improve and grow.
Very satisfied with the end product. I engaged Daniel to create some website content and was extremely satisfied with his vast knowledge beyond the scope of the project. He made suggestions and recommendations that were right on target with my project objectives
