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.”

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.”

“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.”

Monica: Head Spanish Teacher

Teaching has always been my passion and not my job. Over the last 16 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.
