Information about Leah

Hello, my name is Leah and my passion in life is helping people. I am an extremely patient, professional, skilled teacher who is extremely popular with students and families because I am friendly and fun. I love learning myself and enjoy passing that passion on to students

I have been teaching for 15 years (5 years English for adults and 10 years in UK primary schools). I work part time in an Outstanding school and have been part of a team achieving excellent SATS results for the last 5 years. I am very good at analysing students` weaknesses and knowing how to move them forward.

I am a trained examiner for an adult English language skills examination board, and I also have experience working with refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable adults and children. I lived in Portugal for 4 years and I am very proficient in Portuguese, studying at the ISCTE in Lisbon. I am also a trained Spanish teacher for primary and have lived and worked In Barcelona. I completed part of my teacher training in Gran Canaria. I also studied Arabic for 2 years and reached A-Level French, so as you can see I love learning languages!

I have also been writing scri pts for radio, TV and film for the last 5 years. I love films, books, creative writing, theatre, cycling, swimming, travel and languages.

Leah is amazing! My little girl thinks she is fantastic as do I! My daughter has always found maths incredibly hard and has never enjoyed it and as result has fallen behind. We have only been with Leah now for about a month but already my daughter is becoming incredibly more confident and willing to learn. Leah uses a variety of games, clips and other strategies to engage Isla and to make it more fun. She is quirky, fun and encouraging in her approach and teaching style and is full of praise and positivity. Leah rocks and is stuck with us for the long haul!!!!!!!!!!

Leah is an excellent English tutor. She is vivid and friendly, and gives me energy on every lesson. She has many experiences of teaching ever. Moreover, particular in languages, she has experienced her own learning several other languages. Thus her English lesson is very effective, helpful, and practical based on these her experiences. She takes time enough to prepare for our lessons, and carries out the lessons politely and warmly. I look forward to her lesson every time! (English / adult learner)

Leah is a very friendly teacher, her approach is very practical. She put together very sincere efforts to tutor my wife and she was very helpful and supportive during the lessons. She is patient and making sure my wife understand each topic before proceeds to another topic.

Leah has been tutoring our daughter in maths for the last 4 weeks and we are very happy. Leah is friendly and approachable, she arrives promptly and gives good feedback at the end of the session. We were looking for someone who has experience of year 6, SATS and children with special educational needs - Leah has all this experience. Our daughter likes Leah and we don`t have any battles getting her to do the weekly homework. The homework is often fun and the whole family have got involved!
