About me

Online Spoken English Tutor with 18 years of experience teaching private students.

My name is Lesley and I am a native English speaker, living now in Spain. For almost 18 years I have helped people with their conversational English. Both face to face, private individual lessons, and small groups. I aid with both ESL general conversation and with conversational and comprehension preparation for IELTS examinations. I also coach English for business and office thus allowing my students to feel comfortable using the language with customers face to face as well as on the phone, or ...

My name is Lesley and I am a native English speaker, living now in Spain. For almost 18 years I have helped people with their conversational English. Both face to face, private individual lessons, and small groups. I aid with both ESL general conversation and with conversational and comprehension preparation for IELTS examinations. I also coach English for business and office thus allowing my students to feel comfortable using the language with customers face to face as well as on the phone, or virtual meetings. I trained using the L.A.M.D.A. Spoken English and Public Speaking Courses and bring the knowledge I learned during doing those certifications and the way I speak myself into aiding students to gain clarity of speech and pronunciation. In today’s world of virtual working, being able to speak clearly and feeling confident in English is even more important. Presentation coaching has become even more important and is part of what I can offer my students. I believe when learning any language, having a teacher who speaks that language as a native is very important, it allows the nuances of the language to be understood and explained. For me, I view every student as an individual, and thus their lessons - courses, with me, are created specifically to their needs, their speed of learning and in a way that is fun, interactive, and best suits their specific needs. While my own Spanish is not perfect by any means I can use it with a student if needed, however, I do try to keep lessons in English, using other ways of explaining a query if needed, this also aids in developing a wider knowledge of English and its native vocabulary. If you just want to chat and feel confident talking to people when you are out and about, studying for those examinations and feeling panic, or need it for your job, why not come and chat. Why not book a free lesson with me so we can meet and I can create a course-specific for you and your needs.

Genial, muy buena profesora, muy generosa, se adapta perfectamente a lo que necesita el alumno y de este modo se hace una clase muy rica.
Emilia Lombardo
Lesley has been my teacher for a few months and I couldn't be happier, because she helps me with everything (job interviews, grammar or just conversation). She adapts to my needs and tries to be empathetic and make the classroom atmosphere relaxing. Highly recommended

Es muy profesional. Una mujer muy simpática y muy eficiente la recomiendo 100%. A brilliant teacher who always gets you talking and helps you lose that fear of conversing in English.
Andrea Cantos
Me he sentido muy cómodo, Lesley pone especial atención a tus necesidades y se adapta a tu nivel para llegar a un entendimiento idóneo para aprender.
Tony lavonara
La maestra Lesley è molto disponibile e paziente. Ha un metodo di spiegazione semplice, determinante ed incisivo: portando esempi significativi nella spiegazione de termini non conosciuti. Tratta argomenti interessanti, lasciando molto spazio con relative spiegazioni esaurienti alle domande che l'alunno pone. La consiglierei senza dubbio. Lascia inoltre scegliere l'argomento che l'alunno spesso desidera affrontare.
Peter
Very helpful.

Fantástico!!!
alessia michieletto
the teacher is very good and I think that with her I will improve my English because when you speak she corrects the pronunciation and writes in the chat words and phrases useful for expanding the vocabulary
