About Me

I am a certified teacher of English as second language with more than five years of experience in the field. Having taught both adult professionals and students working to improve their English skills, I have a first-hand understanding of the many and variable challenges a language learner of any age can face.

When I am not working as a teacher, I am working as a copywriter and proofreader for English language manuscripts. Because of my experience and attention to detail, I have worked closely with writers and translators to refine their technical knowledge.

Whether you need to learn how to write the perfect business email, pass the IELTS test, speak more fluently with your peers, I can help you reach your goals. Your success is my success!

Leïla
English, French, Exam Prep & Basisschool German Lessons
I specialize in helping students from elementary school all the way through high school for their final exams. I take a very practical and less theoretical approach to teaching since this is the least tended to aspect of learning a language in school. I have taught for 4 years in an elementary school with ages 7-11 and also done tutoring with students in middle and high school for 5 years. I adapt to the personality of the student and always hope to develop close ties so as to base this teaching on facts but also on trust. French, English and German are my mother tongues and I have basic understanding of Spanish and Dutch as well.
