Hello, my name is LAURA THOMAS and I'm 56 years old and currently living in United Kingdom. I am a native English speaker and teach English. I have taught online with Verbalplanet.com since September 2011. I can speak the following languages fluently: English, Malay. I am currently offering a free initial trial lesson for new students.

Detailed Profile in English

About me

I am English but have spent more than half my life living in South East Asia, where I have learnt to speak Malay and Indonesian, while working in a diplomatic mission. I have enjoyed learning Malay and finding out about Malay and Chinese cultures which are so different to the culture I was raised in.

I have travelled throughout South East Asia and truly appreciate the people and their warmth. I have made many close, life-long friends through the gift of being able to communicate in another language. In the last five years, I have re-trained to teach English and Law.

Qualifications & Experience

I have a Master's and Bachelor's degree in Law which will be of interest to students who are planning a law or business career.

I obtained my CELTA qualification in Kuala Lumpur. I have a PGCE, a professional teaching qualification from the UK, and my experience as a tutor is both one to one as well as in the classroom and lecture hall.

Teaching Approach

Your lessons will be tailored to suit you! Whether you would like to learn grammar, or whether you prefer to focus on learning natural language to communicate with others in those situations you would meet in real life, it is up to you and your needs.

I will use the first lesson to find out your needs and preferences and we will take it from there!
