About Leyla

I'm a former English teacher, having taught English composition and literature to college level students. I've also had extensive experience teaching English as a Second Language ("ESL") to Polish immigrants. For the past twenty years, I've worked as a corporate paralegal. While I do a lot of editing, writing, and proofreading in my position at a DC law firm, I find that keeping my foot in the tutoring and teaching worlds is enjoyable. At this time, I tutor a fourth grader in reading at a local charter school and teach ESL at a language academy, both on a volunteer basis.

I have an M.A. in English Literature, with a concentration in 18th Century British Literature. I received a certificate to teach ESL two years ago, and find this type of work very rewarding. I would like to transition eventually into teaching full time in some form in the next few years. Until then, I hope to keep my teaching interests satisfied with tutoring.

I have many years of experience teaching English composition and reading, and proofreading, and editing legal documents. I find the world of English language fascinating and hope to share my enjoyment with others.
