About Me

a little about me...

Hi! I'm Laura Marshallsay, owner of Marshallsay English

I’m passionate about helping my students communicate more confidently in English.  But English teacher is only part of the story.

 I started my professional life as a soldier in the US Army and have been a mother, historian, and non-profit leader. 

Although I was born in the US, I’ve also lived in Britain – which means I have a good cultural understanding of both countries.  I am now lucky enough to call the beautiful city of Frankfurt, Germany home.
