What people are saying about LEAH

“I loved the “Debate” classes for my son who is 12 years old with Leah teacher. It was very good that Leah leads him and encouraged him to speak out his opinion with patience, sharing opinions and talking about his thoughts in detail was a new experience for him. I am sure that it really helped his speaking skill. My son had Fluentella general English class when he was younger and it really helped improve his English speaking as well. I would definitely choose Fluentella for my children’s English class again ❤️❤️ Thank you Fluentella and Leah 💛”

Michelle (mother of student), South Korea

“I have been learning English for the last two years but Leah is the best English tutor I’ve ever met. I can always remember her and feel a real affinity with her. She makes me feel so motivated because she knows how to teach English beginners like me and supplies a cozy atmosphere. I couldn’t have improved my English without her. Also, I want to continue her lessons moving forward. I would strongly recommend Leah. It would be a great help to boost your English level if you can take her lessons.”

What people are saying about Marie

“Marie is a dynamic teacher, has innovative ideas about what to do in class and she is very entertaining. You’ll never get bored during her classes, she knows how to catch your attention! She is one of the funniest teachers I’ve ever met and won’t stop a moment to smile and transmit her positive vibe. If you have any problem she gives you her total support and will help you out until you fully understand.”  

Eva Ceriani, former student – Italy

“When I started my first class with her, she was so kind to everybody and she made me feel comfortable in class. That was so good because she taught the subject with excellent communication skills. She was organized and driven with the ability to keep all of us on task using very good methods of teaching and I understood everything more easily than I expected. My English skills improved quickly. Before going back to my country I took a final picture with her and since then we still keep in touch. She told me about her new online English course and I am looking forward to taking it with her.”  

Victor Vaca, former student – Ecuador

“Marie is the best teacher I have ever seen. She is not only my teacher, but also is my friend. When I had my first online English class with her, I felt so comfortable the whole time. I couldn’t believe I could speak English like that before meeting her. She has a special magic that helps people communicate in English naturally. She always encouraged me to believe I can do it, and helped me to improve my English level. Even better, when I was upset, she always listened to my problems and gave me advice. Because of the above reasons, if my friends want to study English I’ll  recommend Marie first. I am so lucky to have met her.”

Jerry: English Teacher

Hello, my name is Jerry. I’m from Ireland but I’m currently travelling throughout Europe. In 2014 I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Sports Science Education from the University of I.T Carlow. The following year I moved to Spain and began my adventure as an ESL teacher, where I have been teaching both online and in the classroom for over 8 years. I have worked with all ages and levels and I am TEFL certified with a 160hr teaching certificate. Teaching for me is not just a job, I see it more as a passion and I get great pleasure from watching my students grow and become more confident using the English language. Those moments of achievement may seem small at the time, but when you add them up they amount to something special. The key to success is to enjoy what you are doing and I try to take that to every class. My hobbies include world travel, hiking, photography, and sports. I look forward to seeing you!

Monica: Head Spanish Teacher

Teaching has always been my passion and not my job. Over the last 15 years, I have taught a wide variety of age -groups, and levels, but my commitment has been always aimed at maximizing every student’s performance and making the learning process less challenging and more enjoyable.

Therefore, my students learn how to perform in the four skills through a wide range of dynamic activities related to everyday situations and not through infinite doses of theory and memorization. I strongly believe in teaching as a tool to create and innovate, being my main goal, to offer a meaningful experience over the journey in which learning happens inadvertently.

What people are saying about monica

 

 

“Monica was my 3-year-old daughter’s teacher and I was delighted because today many people can teach, but nobody has the pedagogy and patience that she has. These are differentiators that make a professional stand out in this field, the love for their job. She uses entertaining, effective and down-to-earth methods. My daughter did not only learn but always wanted to see her again. I feel happy and satisfied because my daughter did not feel obliged to go to classes and she understood the learning process as a very exciting path. Monica broke up with monotonous teaching patterns. I recommend her 100%. Thanks, Monica!”  

Beatriz García,mother of former student — Venezuela

 

 

Monica really helped me a lot! My big problem was speaking in Spanish as I never practiced. Speaking with Monica has given me the confidence to speak more and she always encouraged me to explain my ideas and try to use a wide range of vocabulary! Now I can speak and understand Spanish perfectly. She is a fantastic teacher!

Laura Harney, former student, Ireland

 

“Monica is an excellent professional. Dedicated, creative, achievement-oriented. Monica plans every detail guiding her pedagogical sequences with interesting activities and dynamic proposals. Her classes are rich in content, strategies, and resources. Meaningful learning plays a leading role in her performance as a teacher. Venezuela misses and requires teachers of her level.”
