Hi! I'm Leslie, a native English speaker who enjoys helping people practice their knowledge and use of the English language in conversation and writing. I am 38, married, and a mother of 3. I live in Alabama, U.S.A. I am currently attending college to obtain my degree to become a teacher of English as a foreign language.
Me as a Teacher
I truly enjoy connecting with students and talking about the topics that bring them joy. The first lesson is a time for us to get to know one another. We can discuss your acquired skills, your study habits, and your goals. We can work together to find a path for your success.
My lessons & teaching style
I enjoy our lessons and my goal is for you to enjoy them as well. I like exploring conversational topics that stray from the ordinary and will challenge your use of English. I like for the first part of our lessons to be open engagement in conversation by way of games or storytelling. Typically, I will not offer correction as you are speaking. I will make a note of the suggested correction or suggested phrasing and speak with you about it during the second half of our lesson. In this latter half, we will discuss different ways that you can build upon your language use, different ways you can use to express yourself, and wording or phrasing choices.

Leslie is very patient teacher, she talks slowerly and clearly than other native speaker, so I can easily grasp the main context of the conversation. She also has a very strong vocabulary to help me expand words for use in daily life. I appreciate her great work to improve my English skill!

Leslie is a wonderful teacher, she is a kind, respectful and patient person.
This was my fourth class with her and it was amazing as always. She always sends me a video or I send it to her and we talk about this and more. I really grateful to know her.
