Hello! My name is Lea, and I am a friendly and experienced adult ESL teacher and tutor. I have a Masters of Education - TESOL, from Seattle University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and a Bachelor of Arts in French, from the University of Washington. I have over 10+ years of ESL tutoring and teaching experience. I have also worked as a TOEFL Test Administrator and an IELTS Test Clerical Marker for the Listening and Reading sections of the exam.

I am skilled at in-person and online tutoring and teaching for students ages 18+ of all levels and skill areas: Conversation, Grammar, Reading, Writing, Vocabulary, and Test Preparation. I have taught Academic English, General English, Business English, and Test Preparation classes for TOEFL, IELTS, and the EmSAT (Emirates SAT).

I am happy to provide tutoring to support outside assignments and coursework, or to assist students with any English skill area that they want to practice more. I can also create custom lessons based on the student's English language needs.

I enjoy working with students to develop their English language skills, build confidence, and reach their educational goals. My lessons are engaging, informative, and fun!

Great teacher!

Lea is very kind and patient. She creates a comfortable learning environment and approaches the student individually. Before proposing a teaching method, she asked a lot of questions and checked what I really needed and helped me figure it out. I look forward to my next lesson with Lea:)
