I had the privilege of being taught English by Leigh for a period of nine months (back in 2011 when I was studying abroad in San Francisco). I can honestly say that Leigh is the best teacher I’ve ever had (and I’ve had lots of great teachers, so that is really saying something). She is sweet, loving, understanding, patient and extremely passionate about her job. She cares for each and every one of her students, and is always willing to go the extra mile to help them, especially those struggling to keep up. Even outside the classroom can students always count on her support. Leigh is also a very enthusiastic and creative person, which is reflected in her teaching style. Her lessons are fun and engaging, also for those who are not naturally crazy about academics, as Leigh always finds a way to encourage and motivate her students (be it by having a meaningful one-on-one conversation with them or by switching up her lesson plan). Furthermore, Leigh not only distinguishes herself from the average teacher by her natural teaching ability, but also by her invaluable experience as an international language school teacher.
