About Leah

As a student, I love the moment when I finally understand what I am learning. Everything clicks and the universe seems to make sense. As an English teacher, I specialize in making that moment happen for my students. I love everything about English, from grammar to writing, to literature analysis, and I want to help students not only understand the material but foster a love for it too.

I have a bachelor's degree in linguistics, a master's in education, and an English teaching credential. I have over 16 years of experience teaching, and in that time I have worked with elementary aged children on up to adults learning English for the first time.

I specialize in ESL, writing and composition, literature analysis, poetry and creative writing, and special topics in English. I have a special affinity and training in grammar and have a keen ability to teach grammar very effectively. I am fluent in Spanish which has helped me teach ESL/ELD to native Spanish speakers.

If you want to know more, don't hesitate to send me a message! I have a very flexible schedule, especially for online students. I am generally available 9am-9pm M-F, and 11am-7pm Sat-Sun. Connect with me and lets get to work!
