Bio

My name is Leyla, and I am so glad you're thinking of learning English! Whatever your goals in learning English, I am happy to help you reach and surpass them.

I have completed a master's in applied linguistics with a focus on teaching English to speakers of other languages and a TESL/TEFL certification course to complement the years of practice I've had helping individuals learn English.

My name is Leyla, and I am so glad you're thinking of learning English! Whatever your goals in learning English, I am happy to help you reach and surpass them.

I have completed a master's in applied linguistics with a focus on teaching English to speakers of other languages and a TESL/TEFL certification course to complement the years of practice I've had helping individuals learn English. I have volunteered as a conversation partner and as an English teacher. I also worked as a preschool teacher for several years, so I am well-acquainted with creatively engaging young people in learning. English is my first language, and I am an American. I am excited to help students of all ages and walks of life learn one of the most widely-spoken languages in the modern world.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology from Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas in 2005, and I earned my Masters of Science degree in Development Studies from the University of Glasgow in Glasgow, Scotland in 2006. I graduated with my master's in applied linguistics from Texas A&M University - Commerce in 2018. I have traveled in Europe and in North America, and I particularly enjoy visiting Eastern Europe whenever I get the chance.

I look forward to learning more about you and your life as we work together to explore the English language!

Works great with teenagers and is very knowledgeable in English.

Leyla is tutoring my son in H. English who is in 10th grade and really enjoys his sessions with her. He came in from his last session and said, “I learned something new today, wanna know what?” We are really happy to have her as part of his support team for school she has been fantastic.

Sheryl , 6 lessons with Leyla

A thoughtful and patient tutor

Leyla is a very thoughtful teacher and I would highly recommend her to students looking for a great tutor, particularly those who are learning on their own. She is responsive and very patient, which anyone that takes a language needs.

Mina, 19 lessons with Leyla

Great Tutor, Very Knowledgable

Leyla was very patient, kind and understanding with my 8 year old. She provided him with a lesson that he was interested in and wanted to read. She was patient with him when he made mistakes and helped him learn to slow down a bit. 10/10 recommend her for your kiddos!

Melissa , 1 lesson with Leyla

Tutor responded:

Thank you very much.

Professional tutor for IELTS

It helps when she corrects my grammar and pronunciation for my speaking. I learned what my weaknesses are during the class. I find it is quite efficient when I talk to her rather than practice on my own. She provides good guidance.

Amy, 4 lessons with Leyla

Business Writing Session

My tutoring session with Leyla was great! She simplified all my work and explained my errors. I would like to recommend her to all ages and professions.

Latoya, 4 lessons with Leyla

Great tutor

I came to the United States to pursue my PhD at Texas A&M University. However, the big obstacle to achieve my goal is to pass IELTS exam. In the beginning, I earned 4.5 on the first exam, but after tutor Leyla gave me lessons for two months / 3 hours weekly. I accomplished my grade 6 overall at the second exam. She was very helpful and she taught me good strategies for listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
